It's a cycle.  Israelites fall away from God, then Israelites come to their
senses and throw all the riff-raff out, just like we're getting ready to do
yet again:

Ezra 9:1  Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying,
The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated
themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their
abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the
Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

Ezra 9:2  For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for
their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of

Ezra 10:3  Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all

Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations greater and

Deuteronomy 7:2 and when Jehovah thy God shall deliver them up before thee,
and thou shalt smite them; then thou shalt utterly destroy them: thou shalt
make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them;

Deuteronomy 7:3 neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter
thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy
