Bible: Deuteronomy 29:17-21

29:17 You have seen their detestable things 1  and idols of wood, stone, silver, and gold.) 2  29:18 Beware that the heart of no man, woman, clan, or tribe among you turns away from the Lord our God today to pursue and serve the gods of those nations; beware that there is among you no root producing poisonous and bitter fruit. 3  29:19 When such a person 4  hears the words of this oath he secretly 5  blesses himself 6  and says, “I will have peace though I continue to walk with a stubborn spirit.” 7  This will destroy 8  the watered ground with the parched. 9  29:20 The Lord will be unwilling to forgive him, and his intense anger 10  will rage 11  against that man; all the curses 12  written in this scroll will fall upon him 13  and the Lord will obliterate his name from memory. 14  29:21 The Lord will single him out 15  for judgment 16  from all the tribes of Israel according to all the curses of the covenant written in this scroll of the law.
