When all these blessings and curses1 I have set before you come upon you and you take them to heart wherever the LORD your God disperses you among the nations,22
and when you and your children return3 to the LORD your God and obey him with all your heart4 and with all your soul according to everything I command you today,
then the LORD your God will restore your fortunesa5 and have compassion6 on you and gather7 you again from all the nations where he scattered8 you.94
Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens,10 from there the LORD your God will gather11 you and bring you back.125
He will bring13 you to the land that belonged to your fathers, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous14 than your fathers.
The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants,15 so that you may love16 him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.
The LORD your God will put all these curses17 on your enemies who hate and persecute you.18
