The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless1 you in the land he is giving you.
The LORD will establish you as his holy people,2 as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands3 of the LORD your God and walk in his ways.
Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name4 of the LORD, and they will fear you.
The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity--in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock5 and the crops of your ground--in the land he swore to your forefathers to give you.612
The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse7 of his bounty,8 to send rain9 on your land in season and to bless10 all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.1113
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 follow12 them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.1314
Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left,14 following other gods and serving them.
However, if you do not obey15 the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today,16 all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:1716
You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country.1817
Your basket and your kneading trough will be cursed.1918
The fruit of your womb will be cursed, and the crops of your land, and the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.20
