~G-D has given authority to judge be he alone has determined the punishment for capital offences.

Deuteronomy 18:9-14 “When you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, “or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. “You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. “For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for you.

Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man eat of it. 3) ‘And what man is there who is betrothed to a woman and has not married her? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man marry her.’

~Mirror of creation.

  1. Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Built a home.
  2. Genesis 2:8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden. Planted a vineyard.
  3. Genesis 1:27-28 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion. Intimate relationship.

 

Deuteronomy 20:10-18 “When you go near a city to fight against it, then proclaim an offer of peace to it.“And it shall be that if they accept your offer of peace, and open to you, then all the people who are found in it shall be placed under tribute to you, and serve you. “Now if the city will not make peace with you, but makes war against you, then you shall besiege it. “And when the LORD your God delivers it into your hands, you shall strike every male in it with the edge of the sword. “But the women, the little ones, the livestock, and all that is in the city, all its spoil, you shall plunder for yourself; and you shall eat the enemies’ plunder which the LORD your God gives you. “Thus you shall do to all the cities which are very far from you, which are not of the cities of these nations. “But of the cities of these peoples which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance, you shall let nothing that breathes remain alive, “but you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittite and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, just as the LORD your God has commanded you, “lest they teach you to do according to all their abominations which they have done for their gods, and you sin against the LORD your God.

~Why did those peoples and their animals need to be utterly destroyed? Anyone of the nations could potentially teach Israel to worship other gods and did.

~Those peoples were judged because their wickedness and sin was full. Among them were the Giants (Nephilim).
