No Ammonite or Moabite or any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, even down to the tenth generation.
For they did not come to meet you with bread and water on your way when you came out of Egypt, and they hired Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaim to pronounce a curse on you.
However, the LORD your God would not listen to Balaam but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the LORD your God loves you.
Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them as long as you live.
Do not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother. Do not abhor an Egyptian, because you lived as an alien in his country.
The third generation of children born to them may enter the assembly of the LORD. Uncleanness in the Camp
When you are encamped against your enemies, keep away from everything impure.
If one of your men is unclean because of a nocturnal emission, he is to go outside the camp and stay there.
But as evening approaches he is to wash himself, and at sunset he may return to the camp.
Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself.
As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement.
For the LORD your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you. Miscellaneous Laws
If a slave has taken refuge with you, do not hand him over to his master.
Let him live among you wherever he likes and in whatever town he chooses. Do not oppress him.
Deuteronomy Chapter 23: Verses 3 - 16
They will swoop down on the slopes of Philistia to the west; together they will plunder the people to the east. They will lay hands on Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites will be subject to them.
Isaiah Chapter 11: Verse 14
"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will punish all who are circumcised only in the flesh-
Egypt, Judah, Edom, Ammon, Moab and all who live in the desert in distant places. For all these nations are really uncircumcised, and even the whole house of Israel is uncircumcised in heart."
Jeremiah Chapter 9: Verses 25 - 26
Concerning the Ammonites: This is what the LORD says: "Has Israel no sons? Has she no heirs? Why then has Molech taken possession of Gad? Why do his people live in its towns?
But the days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will sound the battle cry against Rabbah of the Ammonites; it will become a mound of ruins, and its surrounding villages will be set on fire. Then Israel will drive out those who drove her out," says the LORD.
"Wail, O Heshbon, for Ai is destroyed! Cry out, O inhabitants of Rabbah! Put on sackcloth and mourn; rush here and there inside the walls, for Molech will go into exile, together with his priests and officials.
Why do you boast of your valleys, boast of your valleys so fruitful? O unfaithful daughter, you trust in your riches and say, 'Who will attack me?'
I will bring terror on you from all those around you," declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty. "Every one of you will be driven away, and no one will gather the fugitives.
"Yet afterward, I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites," declares the LORD. A Message About Edom
Jeremiah Chapter 49: Verses 1 - 6
The word of the LORD came to me:
"Son of man, set your face against the Ammonites and prophesy against them.
Say to them, 'Hear the word of the Sovereign LORD. This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because you said "Aha!" over my sanctuary when it was desecrated and over the land of Israel when it was laid waste and over the people of Judah when they went into exile,
therefore I am going to give you to the people of the East as a possession. They will set up their camps and pitch their tents among you; they will eat your fruit and drink your milk.
I will turn Rabbah into a pasture for camels and Ammon into a resting place for sheep. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because you have clapped your hands and stamped your feet, rejoicing with all the malice of your heart against the land of Israel,
therefore I will stretch out my hand against you and give you as plunder to the nations. I will cut you off from the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy you, and you will know that I am the LORD.' " A Prophecy Against Moab
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Moab and Seir said, "Look, the house of Judah has become like all the other nations,"
therefore I will expose the flank of Moab, beginning at its frontier towns,Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon and Kiriathaim,the glory of that land.
I will give Moab along with the Ammonites to the people of the East as a possession, so that the Ammonites will not be remembered among the nations;
and I will inflict punishment on Moab. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' " A Prophecy Against Edom
Ezekiel Chapter 25: Verses 1 - 11
