Bible Highlights: Deuteronomy 11-13

Deuteronomy 12:30, 31

“be careful not to be entrapped after they have been annihilated from before you. Do not ask about their gods, saying, “How were these nations accustomed to serve their gods? I too will do the same. You must not do this to Jehovah you God, because they do for their gods every detestable thing that Jehovah hates, even burning their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.”


At Deuteronomy 12:30, 31 Jehovah made it plain to the Israelites that the practices and customs of the Canaanites were disgusting to Him. Because of their detestable practices, the Canaanites were going to be destroyed, and any Israelite practicing the same things would be too. We also want to be careful that we are not contaminated by the world. For example, there are many popular holidays coming up that are full of things that Jehovah hates, and we do not want to have any part in them if we want our worship to be clean.
