Wherever the lot falls to anyone, that shall be his. You shall inherit according to the tribes of your fathers. 55 'But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall come about that those whom you let remain of them will become aas pricks in your eyes and as thorns in your sides, and they will trouble you in the land in which you live. 56 'And as I plan to do to them, so I will do to you.'"
