The LORD will plague you with diseases until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to possess.122
The LORD will strike you with wasting disease,2 with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought,3 with blight4 and mildew, which will plague5 you until you perish.623
The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron.724
The LORD will turn the rain8 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 defeated9 before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven,10 and you will become a thing of horror11 to all the kingdoms on earth.1226
Your carcasses will be food for all the birds of the air13 and the beasts of the earth, and there will be no one to frighten them away.1427
The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt15 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 grope16 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 rescue17 you.
You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and ravish her.18 You will build a house, but you will not live in it.19 You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit.2031
Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them.
