previous Deuteronomy 27:11-28:6

Thereupon Moses charged the people, saying: After you have crossed the Jordan, the following shall stand on Mount Gerizim when the blessing for the people is spoken: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. And for the curse, the following shall stand on Mount Ebal: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphthali. The Levites shall then proclaim in a loud voice to all the people of Israel:

Cursed be anyone who makes a sculptured or molten image, abhorred by the Lord, a craftsman's handiwork, and sets it up in secret.--And all the people shall respond, Amen. Cursed be he who insults his father or mother.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who moves his fellow countryman's landmark.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who misdirects a blind person on his way.--And all the people shall say, Amen.

Cursed be he who subverts the rights of the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who lies with his father's wife, for he has removed his father's garment.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who lies with any beast.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who lies with his sister, whether daughter of his father or of his mother.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who lies with his mother-in-law. And all the people shall say, Amen.

Cursed be he who strikes down his fellow countryman in secret.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who accepts a bribe in the case of the murder of an innocent person.--And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he who will not uphold the terms of this Teaching and observe them. And all the people shall say, Amen.

Now, if you obey the Lord your God, to observe faithfully all His commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings shall come upon you and take effect, if you will but heed the word of the Lord your God:

Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the country. Blessed shall be the issue of your womb, the produce of your soil, and the offspring of your cattle, the calving of your herd and the lambing of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Blessed shall you be in your comings and blessed shall you be in your goings.
