The Israelites learned that trusting the Lord they would be safe and inherit the land, but following their own ways would only lead them to ruin.

The section starts at about 4:33 and ends at about 6:6

     50 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying, 51 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; 52 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places: 53 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it. 54 And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man’s inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit. 55 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. 56 Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as I thought to do unto them.(KJV)

Lo, Many Shall Come

1. Lo, many shall come from the East and the West 
And sit at the feast of salvation 
With Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the blest, 
Obeying the Lord’s invitation. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

2. But they who have always resisted His grace 
And on their own virtue depended 
Shall then be condemned and cast out from His face, 
Eternally lost and unfriended. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

3. Oh, may we all hear when our Shepherd doth call 
In accents persuasive and tender, 
That, while there is time, we make haste, one and all, 
And find Him, our mighty Defender! 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

4. Oh, that we the throng of the ransomed may swell, 
To whom He hath granted remission! 
God graciously make us in heaven to dwell 
And save us from endless perdition. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

5. God grant that I may of His infinite love 
Remain in His merciful keeping 
And sit with the King at His table above 
When here in the grave I am sleeping. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

6. All trials are then like a dream that is past, 
Forgotten all trouble and sorrow; 
All questions and doubts have been answered at last; 
Then dawneth eternity’s morrow. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

7. The heavens shall ring with an anthem more grand 
Than ever on earth was recorded; 
The blest of the Lord shall receive at His hand 
The crown to the victors awarded. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!
