    The Israelites did not listen to God and so in verse 3 they had to suffer the consequences of their actions. Anyone who disobeys God will eventually have to face the bad consequences of their actions.

    Dear friends in the LORD a lot can be driven out this portion of scripture however my emphasis is verse 21, GOD let a few tribes during the time of Joshua his servant not as a sign of defeat to him but for the young ISRAELITES to drive out as a task if they really understood their God but instead this guys just copied the evil their subjects were doing this caused them get a curse for a blessing lets check our lives what is that which was left in your life may be family which must be removed? or else you may miss your blessing.

    We are not here to judge but to be judged, we truly need to concentrate on self and not others, but to love one another and always ask God to allow the holy spirit to lead and guide us and help us with our thoughts and the words we say,that it is pleasing in his sight. Clean us from the inside out
