Deuteronomy 28


28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently
 to the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all
 his commandments which I command thee this day; that the LORD
 thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
28:2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake
 thee, if thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God.
28:3 Blessed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and blessed [shalt]
 thou [be] in the field.
28:4 Blessed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of
 thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy
 cattle, and the flocks of thy sheep.
28:5 Blessed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.
28:6 Blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and blessed
 [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.
28:7 The LORD shall cause thy enemies that rise up against thee
 to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee
 one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
28:8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy
 store-houses, and in all that thou settest thy hand to: and he
 shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth
 thee.
28:9 The LORD shall establish thee a holy people to himself, as
 he hath sworn to thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of
 the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
28:10 And all the people of the earth shall see that thou art
 called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of
 thee.
28:11 And the LORD shall make thee to abound in goods, in the
 fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the
 fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD swore to thy
 fathers to give thee.
28:12 The LORD shall open to thee his good treasure, the heaven
 to give rain to thy land in its season, and to bless all the
 work of thy hand: and thou shalt lend to many nations, and thou
 shalt not borrow.
28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail;
 and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if
 thou shalt hearken to the commandments of the LORD thy God,
 which I command thee this day, to observe and to do [them]:
28:14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I
 command thee this day, [to] the right hand or [to] the left, to
 go after other gods to serve them.
28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken to the
 voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his
 commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day;
 that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
28:16 Cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and cursed [shalt]
 thou [be] in the field.
28:17 Cursed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.
28:18 Cursed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of
 thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy
 sheep.
28:19 Cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and cursed
 [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.
28:20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and
 rebuke, in all that thou undertakest to perform, until thou
 shalt be destroyed, and until thou shalt perish quickly;
 because of the wickedness of thy doings by which thou hast
 forsaken me.
28:21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave to thee, until
 he shall have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou
 goest to possess it.
28:22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a
 fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning,
 and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew: and
 they shall pursue thee until thou dost perish.
28:23 And thy heaven that [is] over thy head shall be brass, and
 the earth that [is] under thee [shall be] iron.
28:24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust:
 from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou art
 destroyed.
28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thy
 enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven
 ways before them; and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of
 the earth.
28:26 And thy carcass shall be food to all fowls of the air, and
 to the beasts of the earth, and no man shall drive [them] away.
28:27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with
 the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, of which
 thou canst not be healed.
28:28 The LORD shall smite thee with the madness, and blindness,
 and astonishment of heart:
28:29 And thou shalt grope at noon-day, as the blind gropeth in
 darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou
 shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall
 save [thee].
28:30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with
 her: thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell in it:
 thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes of
 it.
28:31 Thy ox [shall be] slain before thy eyes, and thou shalt
 not eat of it: thy ass [shall be] violently taken away from
 before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep
 [shall be] given to thy enemies, and thou shalt have none to
 rescue [them].
28:32 Thy sons and thy daughters [shall be] given to another
 people, and thy eyes shall look, and fail [with longing] for
 them all the day long: and [there shall be] no might in thy
 hand.
28:33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labors, shall be eaten
 by a nation which thou knowest not: and thou shalt be only
 oppressed and crushed always:
28:34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thy eyes which
 thou shalt see.
28:35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs,
 with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy
 foot to the top of thy head.
28:36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt
 set over thee, to a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers
 have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and
 stone.
28:37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a
 by-word, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
28:38 Thou shalt carry much seed into the field, and shalt
 gather [but] little: for the locust shall consume it.
28:39 Thou shalt plant vineyards and dress [them], but shalt
 neither drink [of] the wine, nor gather [the grapes]: for the
 worm shall eat them.
28:40 Thou shalt have olive-trees throughout all thy coasts, but
 thou shalt not anoint [thyself] with the oil: for thy olive
 shall cast [its fruit].
28:41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not
 enjoy them: for they shall go into captivity.
28:42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust
 consume.
28:43 The stranger that [is] within thee shall rise above thee
 very high; and thou shalt come down very low.
28:44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he
 shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
28:45 Moreover, all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall
 pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou art destroyed:
 because thou hearkenedst not to the voice of the LORD thy God,
 to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded
 thee:
28:46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder,
 and upon thy seed for ever.
28:47 Because thou didst not serve the LORD thy God with
 joyfulness and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all
 [things]:
28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thy enemies which the LORD
 shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in
 nakedness, and in want of all [things]: and he shall put a yoke
 of iron upon thy neck, until he hath destroyed thee.
28:49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from
 the end of the earth, [as swift] as the eagle flieth, a nation
 whose language thou shalt not understand:
28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the
 person of the old, nor show favor to the young:
28:51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of
 thy land, until thou art destroyed: which [also] shall not
 leave thee [either] corn, wine, or oil, [or] the increase of
 thy cattle, or flocks of thy sheep, until he hath destroyed
 thee.
28:52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high
 and fortified walls come down, in which thou didst trust,
 throughout all thy land; and he shall besiege thee in all thy
 gates throughout all thy land which the LORD thy God hath given
 thee.
28:53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thy own body, the flesh of
 thy sons and of thy daughters which the LORD thy God hath given
 thee, in the siege and in the straitness with which thy enemies
 shall distress thee:
28:54 [So that] the man [that is] tender among you, and very
 delicate, his eye shall be evil towards his brother, and
 towards the wife of his bosom, and towards the remnant of his
 children whom he shall leave:
28:55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of
 his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left
 him in the siege and in the straitness with which thy enemies
 shall distress thee in all thy gates.
28:56 The tender and delicate woman among you, who would not
 venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for
 delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil towards the
 husband of her bosom, and towards her son, and towards her
 daughter,
28:57 And towards her young one, her own offspring, and towards
 her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for
 want of all [things] secretly in the siege and straitness with
 which thy enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.
28:58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law
 that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this
 glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
28:59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the
 plagues of thy seed, [even] great plagues, and of long
 continuance, and severe sicknesses, and of long continuance.
28:60 Moreover, he will bring upon thee all the diseases of
 Egypt, of which thou wast afraid; and they shall cleave to
 thee.
28:61 Also every sickness, and every plague which [is] not
 written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon
 thee, until thou art destroyed.
28:62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the
 stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldst not obey
 the voice of the LORD thy God.
28:63 And it shall come to pass, [that] as the LORD rejoiced
 over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will
 rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to naught;
 and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to
 possess it.
28:64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people from the
 one end of the earth even to the other; and there thou shalt
 serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have
 known, [even] wood and stone.
28:65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither
 shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give
 thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow
 of mind:
28:66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou
 shalt fear day and night, and shalt have no assurance of thy
 life:
28:67 In the morning thou shalt say, O that it were evening, and
 at evening thou shalt say, O that it were morning! for the fear
 of thy heart with which thou shalt fear, and for the sight of
 thy eyes which thou shalt see.
28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships,
 by the way of which I have said to thee, Thou shalt see it no
 more again: and there ye shall be sold to your enemies for
 bond-men and bond-women, and no man shall buy [you].
