" 'I will grant peace in the land,1 and you will lie down2 and no one will make you afraid.3 I will remove savage beasts4 from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country.
You will pursue your enemies,5 and they will fall by the sword before you.
Five6 of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you.79
" 'I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers,8 and I will keep my covenant9 with you.
You will still be eating last year's harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new.1011
I will put my dwelling placea11 among you, and I will not abhor you.1212
I will walk13 among you and be your God,14 and you will be my people.1513
I am the LORD your God,16 who brought you out of Egypt17 so that you would no longer be slaves to the Egyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke18 and enabled you to walk with heads held high.
" 'But if you will not listen to me and carry out all these commands,1915
and if you reject my decrees and abhor my laws20 and fail to carry out all my commands and so violate my covenant,2116
then I will do this to you: I will bring upon you sudden terror, wasting diseases and fever22 that will destroy your sight and drain away your life.23 You will plant seed in vain, because your enemies will eat it.24
