Why did the Lord abhor the Canaanites?


"You shall therefore keep all My statutes, and all My judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring
you to dwell therein, spew you not out. And you shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast
out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them." Lev. 20: 22, 23.
NOTE - The statement that "they committed all these things" refers to what had been previously
forbidden to the Israelites. Among these things was idolatrous worship (Lev. 20: 1-5), showing that the
Gentiles, as well as the Jews, were amenable to the law of God, and were abhorred of God for violating it.
