|Deuteronomy 28:1-12 |
1 "And it shall come to pass, if you will diligently listen to and heed the voice of the LORD your God to observe and to do all his commandments that I command you this day, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.
2 And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you will listen to and heed the voice of the LORD your God.
3 Blessed shall you be who are in the city, and blessed shall you be who are in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your cattle, and the flocks of your sheep.
5 Blessed shall be your basket and your store.
6 Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7 The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be struck down before your face; they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways.
8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses, and in all that you set your hand to; and he shall bless you in the land that the LORD your God gives you.
9 The LORD shall establish you as a holy people to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you will keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and walk in his ways.
10 And all people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of you.
11 And the LORD shall make you plenteous in goods, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you.
12 The LORD shall open to you his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain to your land in his season, and to bless all the work of your hand; and you will lend to many nations, and you will not borrow.
