And you shall not prosper in your ways. And you shall be always oppressed and plundered all the days; and there will be no one to save. 30 You shall betroth a wife, and another shall lie with her.

Your ass shall be violently taken away from before you, and it will not be given back. Your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you shall have no deliverer. 32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people; and your eyes shall look and fail for them all the day. And no power shall be in your hand. 33 The fruit of your ground, and all your labor, shall be eaten up by a nation which you do not know And you shall always be oppressed and crushed. 34 And you shall be maddened because of that which you shall see with the sight of your eyes. 35 Jehovah shall strike you with an evil ulcer on the knees, and on the legs, of which you cannot be healed from the sole of your foot even to your crown. 36 Jehovah shall cause you and your king whom you shall raise up over you, to go to a nation which you have not known, you and your fathers. And you shall serve other gods there, wood and stone. 37 And you shall be an astonishment, a proverb and a byword among all the peoples where Jehovah shall lead you. 38 You shall carry much seed out to the field, and you shall gather in little; for the locusts will devour it. 39 You shall plant vineyards, and shall labor, and you shall not gather, nor drink wine; for the worm will devour it. 40 You shall have olive trees in all your border, and you shall not anoint with oil; for your olive shall fall off. 41 You shall father sons and daughters, and they shall not be with you; for they shall go into captivity. 42 The locust shall possess all your trees and fruit of your ground. 43 The alien in your midst shall go above you, higher and higher; and you shall come down, lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him.

And He shall put an iron yoke on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 Jehovah shall raise a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as the eagle flies; a nation whose tongue you will not understand, 50 a nation fierce of face, who will not regard the person of the aged, nor show favor to the young. 51 And he shall eat the fruit of your livestock, and the fruit of your land, until you are destroyed. He shall not leave to you grain, new wine, and oil, offspring of your oxen, or young ones of your flock, until he has destroyed you. 52 And he shall lay siege to you in all your gates, until your high and fortified walls in which you are trusting come down, in all your land; yea, he shall lay siege to you in all your gates, in all your land which Jehovah your God has given to you. 53 And you shall eat the fruit of your body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom Jehovah your God has given to you, in the siege, and in the anguish with which your enemies shall distress you. 54 The man who is tender and very delicate among you, and his eye shall be evil against his brother, and against the wife of his bosom, and against the remnant of his sons which he has left; 55 so that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his sons that he shall eat, because he has nothing left to him in the siege, and in the anguish with which your enemies shall distress you in all your gates. 56 The tender and delicate woman among you, who would not have ventured to set the sole of her foot on the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil against the husband of her bosom, and against her son, and against her daughter; 57 and against her fetus which comes out from between her feet, even against her sons whom she shall bear. For she shall eat them in secret, for the lack of everything in the siege and in the anguish with which the enemy shall distress you within your gates. 58 If you will not take heed to do all the words of this law written in this book, to fear this glorious and fearful Name, Jehovah your God, 59 then Jehovah will make your plagues remarkable, and the plagues of your children shall be great and persistent plagues with evil and long lasting sicknesses. 60 He shall also bring on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid; and they shall cling to you. 61 Also every sickness and every plague which is not written in the book of this law, Jehovah shall cause them to come on you until you are destroyed. 62 And you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of the heavens for multitude, because you would not obey the voice of Jehovah your God. 63 And it shall be, as Jehovah rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you, so Jehovah shall rejoice over you to destroy you, and to lay you waste. And you shall be plucked from the land you are going to possess. 64 And Jehovah shall scatter you among all people, from one end of the earth even to the other, and you shall serve other gods there, wood and stone, which you have not known, nor your fathers. 65 And among these nations you shall find no ease, nor shall the sole of your foot have rest. But Jehovah shall give you there a trembling heart and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind. 66 And your life shall hang in doubt before you, and you shall fear day and night, and shall have no assurance of your life. 67 In the morning you shall say, Oh that it were evening! And in the evening you shall say, Oh that it were morning! For the fear of your heart with which you fear, and for the sight of your eyes which you shall see. 68 And Jehovah shall bring you into Egypt again with ships, by the way of which I said to you, You shall never see it again. And you shall be sold to your enemies there, for male slaves and slave-girls; and there shall be no buyer.
