Curses From Mount Ebal

9 Then Moses and the priests, who are Levites,1 said to all Israel, "Be silent, O Israel, and listen! You have now become the people of the LORD your God.2 10 Obey the LORD your God and follow his commands and decrees that I give you today." 11 On the same day Moses commanded the people: 12 When you have crossed the Jordan, these tribes shall stand on Mount Gerizim3 to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar,4 Joseph and Benjamin.5 13 And these tribes shall stand on Mount Ebal6 to pronounce curses: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan and Naphtali. 14 The Levites shall recite to all the people of Israel in a loud voice: 15 "Cursed is the man who carves an image or casts an idol7--a thing detestable8 to the LORD, the work of the craftsman's hands--and sets it up in secret." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"9 16 "Cursed is the man who dishonors his father or his mother."10 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 17 "Cursed is the man who moves his neighbor's boundary stone."11 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 18 "Cursed is the man who leads the blind astray on the road."12 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 19 "Cursed is the man who withholds justice from the alien,13 the fatherless or the widow."14 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 20 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his father's wife, for he dishonors his father's bed."15 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 21 "Cursed is the man who has sexual relations with any animal."16 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 22 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his sister, the daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother."17 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 23 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his mother-in-law."18 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 24 "Cursed is the man who kills19 his neighbor secretly."20 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 25 "Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person."21 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!" 26 "Cursed is the man who does not uphold the words of this law by carrying them out."22 Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"23
