Deuteronomy 28:35 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 28:35

The Lord shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with
a sore botch, that cannot be healed
Which in those parts as it is very painful, so is not easily cured; and this which is threatened was incurable by the art of man, as others in ( Deuteronomy 28:27 ) ; and which should not stop there in the lower parts of the body, but proceed and spread:

from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head;
and so be filled with them, as Job was with his boils and ulcers.
