The politically incorrect King James Bible tells of God’s plan for the covenant people, that they remain separate from all other peoples, and that they never allow a stranger to occupy a position of power over them. Numbers Chapter 33:55-56 “But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell. Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as I thought to do unto them.”
