You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out.120
The LORD will send on you curses,2 confusion and rebuke3 in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin4 because of the evil5 you have done in forsaking him.a21
The LORD will plague you with diseases until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to possess.622
The LORD will strike you with wasting disease,7 with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought,8 with blight9 and mildew, which will plague10 you until you perish.1123
The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron.1224
The LORD will turn the rain13 of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed.
The LORD will cause you to be defeated14 before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven,15 and you will become a thing of horror16 to all the kingdoms on earth.1726
Your carcasses will be food for all the birds of the air18 and the beasts of the earth, and there will be no one to frighten them away.1927
The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt20 and with tumors, festering sores and the itch, from which you cannot be cured.
The LORD will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind.
At midday you will grope21 about like a blind man in the dark. You will be unsuccessful in everything you do; day after day you will be oppressed and robbed, with no one to rescue22 you.
