Once again, not the quick and easy way but the way that is for their good! Then, He warns the people NOT to make covenants with the people around them nor serve their gods. He knows this will lead to their destruction. Remember what happened when Seth’s descendants who were calling upon the name of the Lord began intermarrying with Cain’s descendants who weren’t?
