Deuteronomy 28:23-25 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

23 The heavens over your heads will be like bronze and the earth under your feet like iron. 24 For rain the Lord will give your land powdery dust, which will come down upon you from the heavens until you are destroyed. 25 The Lord will let you be beaten down before your enemies; though you advance against them from one direction, you will flee before them in seven,[a] so that you will become an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.


  1. 28:25 From one direction…in seven: see note on v. 7.
