And ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be smitten before your enemies. Those who hate you shall rule over you, and ye shall flee when no man pursues you. 18 And if for these things ye will not yet hearken to me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins. 19 And I will break the pride of your power. And I will make your sky as iron, and your earth as brass, 20 and your strength shall be spent in vain, for your land shall not yield its increase, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit. 21 And if ye walk contrary to me, and will not hearken to me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. 22 And I will send the beast of the field among you, which shall rob you of your sons, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number, and your ways shall become desolate. 23 And if by these things ye will not be reformed to me, but will walk contrary to me, 24 then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will smite you, even I, seven times for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword upon you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant, and ye shall be gathered together within your cities.

If then their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity, 42 then I will remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember, and I will remember the land. 43 The land also shall be left by them, and shall enjoy its Sabbaths while it lays desolate without them.
