Blessings for Obedience

1 If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow1 all his commands2 I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.3 2 All these blessings will come upon you4 and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God: 3 You will be blessed5 in the city and blessed in the country.6 4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock--the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.7 5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. 6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.8 7 The LORD will grant that the enemies9 who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.10 8 The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless11 you in the land he is giving you. 9 The LORD will establish you as his holy people,12 as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands13 of the LORD your God and walk in his ways. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name14 of the LORD, and they will fear you. 11 The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity--in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock15 and the crops of your ground--in the land he swore to your forefathers to give you.16 12 The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse17 of his bounty,18 to send rain19 on your land in season and to bless20 all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.21 13 The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow22 them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.23 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left,24 following other gods and serving them.
