Deuteronomy 28:1-14

Blessings for Obedience

1“And a  if you faithfully obey the voice of the  Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the  Lord your God will set you b  high above all the nations of the earth. 2And all these blessings shall come upon you and c  overtake you, if you obey the voice of the  Lord your God. 3Blessed shall you be in the city, and d  blessed shall you be in the field. 4Blessed shall be e  the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. 5Blessed shall be your basket and your f  kneading bowl. 6Blessed shall you be g  when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

7“The  Lord h  will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. 8The  Lord i  will command the blessing on you in your barns and j  in all that you undertake. k  And he will bless you in the land that the  Lord your God is giving you. 9 l  The  Lord will establish you as a people holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the  Lord your God and walk in his ways. 10And m  all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are n  called by the name of the  Lord, and they shall be o  afraid of you. 11And p  the  Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in q  the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your livestock and in the fruit of your ground, within the land that the  Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12The  Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, r  to give the rain to your land in its season and s  to bless all the work of your hands. And t  you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13And the  Lord will make you u  the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey the commandments of the  Lord your God, which I command you today, being careful to do them, 14 v  and if you do not turn aside from any of the words that I command you today, to the right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
