The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on earth to be his people, his treasured possession.

Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves. . . . Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives? . . . Thus cleansed I them from all strangers.
Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in thy land . . . for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are round about you. You may also buy from among the aliens who sojourn with you and their families that are with you, who have been born in your land; and they may be your property. You may bequeath them to your sons after you, to inherit as a possession for ever; you may make slaves of them, but over your brethren the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with harshness.
An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord. . . . Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.
When they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
