The following nations  are mentioned in the Bible as either to be driven out of the Promised Land by God or by the Israelites:

  • Amorites
  • Hittites
  • Perizzites
  • Canaanites
  • Hivites
  • Jebusites
  • Girgashite

See, e.g., Ex. 23:23; Deut. 7:1. Other territory and nations are mentioned in Joshua 13:2-6 (including the Philistines and the Sidonians).

As it happens, Israel, for various reasons, didn’t totally drive out these other nations from the Promised Land; see, e.g., 1 Kings 9:20-21.
