Selected verses…

Old Testament –

“And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and He said, ‘Because that this people hath transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto My voice; I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died: that through them I may prove Israel, whether they will keep the way of the LORD to walk therein, as their fathers did keep it, or not.’  Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them out hastily; neither delivered He them into the hand of Joshua.”  Judges 2:20-23 (KJV)

New Testament –

“Many therefore of His disciples, when they had heard this, said, ‘This is an hard saying; who can hear it?  When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples murmured at it, He said unto them, ‘Doth this offend you?  What and if ye shall see the Son of Man ascend up where He was before?  It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.  But there are some of you that believe not.’  For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray Him.  And He said, ‘Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto Me, except it were given unto him of My Father.’  From that time many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him.”  John 6:60-66 (KJV)
