LORD thy God.
28:3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt
thou be in the field.

of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of

28:6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed
shalt thou be when thou goest out.

against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come
out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto;
and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God

himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the
commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.

called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of

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 sware
unto thy fathers to give thee.

heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to
bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto
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 that thou hearken unto 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.
Curses for Disobedience
28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not
hearken unto 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
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
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 settest thine hand unto for to do,
until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly;
because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast
28:21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee,
until he 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 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
28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine
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 meat unto all fowls of the
air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray
28:27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and
with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch,
whereof thou canst not be healed.
28:28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and
blindness, and astonishment of heart:
28:29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, 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 an house, and thou shalt not
dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not
gather the grapes thereof.
28:31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou
shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken
away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to
thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou
shalt have none to rescue them.
28:32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto
another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with
longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no
might in thine hand.
28:33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labors, shall a
nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only
oppressed and crushed alway:
28:34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine 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 unto the top of thy head.
28:36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou
shalt set over thee, unto 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 byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead
28:38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and
shalt gather but little in; 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
worms shall eat them.
28:40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy
coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for
thine olive shall cast his 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
28:43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up 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 be
destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto 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 servedst not the LORD thy God with
joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of
28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine 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 have 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 tongue 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 be destroyed: which also shall
not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of
thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed
28:52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy
high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst,
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 thine 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,
wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:
28:54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very
delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and
toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his
children which 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, wherewith
thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.
28:56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would
not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground
for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil
toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and
toward her daughter,
28:57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between
her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for
she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the
siege and straitness, wherewith thine 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 sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
28:60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of
Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto
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 be destroyed.
28:62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were
as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest
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
nought; 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 unto 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 none assurance
of thy life:
28:67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were
even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning!
for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and
for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with
ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see
it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your
enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
