Exodus 23:29

I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.

a. ASV: I will not drive them out from before thee in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the beasts of the field multiply against thee.

b. YLT: I cast them not out from before thee in one year, lest the land be a desolation, and the beast of the field hath multiplied against thee;

c. Amplified Bible Classic: I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate [for lack of attention] and the wild beasts multiply against you.

d. Septuagint: I will not cast them out in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the beasts of the field multiply against thee.

e. Stone Edition Torah/Prophets/Writings: I shall not drive them away from you in a single year, lest the Land become desolate and the wildlife of the field multiply against you.

1). I see in this verse and the next verse the principle of spiritual growth. A slow but upward progress.

a). Exodus 23:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.

b). Ephesians 4:11-15 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

c). Mark 4:26-29  And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
4:27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
4:28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
4:29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
