Blessings or Not Deuteronomy 28

Deuteronomy 28:2 "And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God."

v15 "BUT it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day: that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:"

In this long chapter of 68 verses blessings and cursings are listed. We will be reminded of these predictions in later books of the Bible. It deals with the dispersion as well. We know the history now but at the time of this writing it must have been a shock to hear, just as they were about to enter a land flowing with milk and honey. What a prize to loose!


v1 The blessings for obedience
v15 the curses for disobedience

See the previous post called 'Pause' for scripture references to study this subject more.

Psalms 79:1 "O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled: they have laid Jerusalem on heaps. v4 We have become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us."
