Consequences of Disobedience

15 (A)But it shall come about, if you do not [a]obey the Lord your God, to be careful to [b]follow all His commandments and His statutes which I am commanding you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

16 (B)Cursed will you be in the city, and cursed will you be in the [c]country.

17 (C)Cursed will be your basket and your kneading bowl.

18 (D)Cursed will be the [d]children of your womb, the [e]produce of your ground, the newborn of your herd, and the offspring of your flock.

19 (E)Cursed will you be when you come in, and cursed will you be when you go out.

20 (F)The Lord will send against you curses, panic, and (G)rebuke, in [f]everything you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until (H)you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have abandoned Me.
