Bible: Deuteronomy 28:14-21

28:14 But you must not turn away from all the commandments I am giving 1  you today, to either the right or left, nor pursue other gods and worship 2  them.

Curses as Reversal of Blessings

28:15But if you ignore 3  the Lord your God and are not careful to keep all his commandments and statutes I am giving you today, then all these curses will come upon you in full force: 4  28:16 You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the field. 28:17 Your basket and your mixing bowl will be cursed. 28:18 Your children 5  will be cursed, as well as the produce of your soil, the calves of your herds, and the lambs of your flocks. 28:19 You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out. 6 

Curses by Disease and Drought

28:20The Lord will send on you a curse, confusing you and opposing you 7  in everything you undertake 8  until you are destroyed and quickly perish because of the evil of your deeds, in that you have forsaken me. 9  28:21 The Lord will plague you with deadly diseases 10  until he has completely removed you from the land you are about to possess.
