Good morning friends,
Today's reading is the mirror image of yesterday's. Yesterday God promised Israel blessings of every kind if Israel obeyed God. Today God promises curses if Israel turns away. Israel and God have made a covenant with each other. God's faithfulness is clear, but Israel's isn't as certain.

God bless,


Deuteronomy 28:15-25
15But if you will not obey the Lord your God by diligently observing all his commandments and decrees, which I am commanding you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you: 16Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the field. 17Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 18Cursed shall be the fruit of your womb, the fruit of your ground, the increase of your cattle and the issue of your flock.

19Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. 20The Lord will send upon you disaster, panic, and frustration in everything you attempt to do, until you are destroyed and perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken me. 21The Lord will make the pestilence cling to you until it has consumed you off the land that you are entering to possess. 22The Lord will afflict you with consumption, fever, inflammation, with fiery heat and drought, and with blight and mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish. 23The sky over your head shall be bronze, and the earth under you iron. 24The Lord will change the rain of your land into powder, and only dust shall come down upon you from the sky until you are destroyed.

25The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out against them one way and flee before them seven ways. You shall become an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.
