Deuteronomy 11:23

Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

Then will the Lord drive out all those nations from before you,.... By little and little, even all the seven nations which then inhabited the land of Canaan; and this he would do to make room for them, that they might inherit the land; see Deuteronomy 7:1

and ye shall possess greater nations, and mightier than yourselves; countries whose inhabitants were more in number, and greater in strength, than they; and therefore the conquest of them was not to be ascribed to themselves, but to the Lord; this is often observed; see Deuteronomy 7:1.
