Deuteronomy 28:65

Deuteronomy 28:65

And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither
shall the sole of thy foot have rest
No quiet settlement, nor certain dwelling, being obliged to move from place to place through cruel edicts, heavy fines and mulcts, exorbitant taxes and impositions, and diligent search made after them by the courts of the inquisition, especially where any substance was to be gotten. The Jews themselves


F20 own that this passage is now fulfilled in them:

but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart;
being always in fear lest their persons should be seized on, their children taken from them, and their goods confiscated; hence the poet F21 gives them the epithet of "trembling":

and failing of eyes:
in looking for a vainly expected Messiah, to deliver them from all their fears and troubles:

and sorrow of mind;
under their present afflictions and calamities.
