12. What prohibition did God give His chosen people against intermarrying with the heathen nations about them, and why?

Answer

'Neither shall thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shall not give unto his son, nor his
daughter shall thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following Me, that they may
serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly." Deut.
7:3,4.
NOTE - Intermarriage with the ungodly was the mistake made by the professed people of God
before the Flood, and God did not wish Israel to repeat that folly.
