Deuteronomy 1:10; Deuteronomy 10:22; Deuteronomy 28:47; Deuteronomy 28:62
'The LORD your God has multiplied you, and behold, you are this day like the stars of heaven in number.
"Your fathers went down to Egypt seventy persons in all, and now the LORD your God has made you as numerous as the stars of heaven.
"Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and a glad heart, for the abundance of all things;
"Then you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, because you did not obey the LORD your God.
