1 And it shall come to passe, if thou shalt hearken diligently vnto the voyce of the Lord thy God, to obserue and to doe all his Commandements which I command thee this day; that the Lord thy God will set thee on high aboue all nations of the earth.
11 And the Lord shal make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattell, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware vnto thy fathers to giue thee.
12 The Lord shal open vnto thee his good treasure, the heauen to giue the raine vnto thy land in his season, and to blesse all the worke of thine hand: and thou shalt lend vnto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
13 And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the taile, and thou shalt be aboue onely, and thou shalt not be beneath: if that thou hearken vnto the Commandements of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to obserue, and to doe them:
15 ¶ But it shal come to passe, if thou wilt not hearken vnto the voyce of the Lord thy God, to obserue to doe all his Commandements and his Statutes, which I command thee this day, that all these curses shall come vpon thee, and ouertake thee.
20 The Lord shall send vpon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand vnto, for to doe, vntill thou be destroyed, and vntill thou perish quickely, because of the wickednesse of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
22 The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a feuer, and with an inflammation, & with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildewe: and they shall pursue thee vntill thou perish.
31 Thine oxe shall be slaine before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine asse shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shal not be restored to thee: thy sheepe shall bee giuen vnto thine enemies, and thou shalt haue none to rescue them.
45 Moreouer, all these curses shall come vpon thee, and shall pursue thee, and ouertake thee, til thou be destroied: because thou hearkenedst not vnto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keepe his Commandements, and his Statutes which he commanded thee.
48 Therefore shalt thou serue thine enemies, which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakednesse, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron vpon thy necke, vntill he haue destroyed thee.
51 And hee shall eat the fruit of thy cattell, and the fruit of thy land, vntill thou be destroyed: which also shall not leaue thee either corne, wine, or oyle, or the increase of thy kine, or flockes of thy sheepe, vntill he haue destroyed thee.
52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, vntill thy high and fenced walles come downe wherein thou trustedst throughout all thy land: and hee shall besiege thee in all thy gates, throughout all thy land which the Lord thy God hath giuen thee.
53 And thou shalt eate the fruit of thine owne body, the flesh of thy sonnes, and of thy daughters (which the Lord thy God hath giuen thee) in the siege, and in the straitnesse wherewith thine enemies shall distresse thee.
54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shalbe euill toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosome, and towards the remnant of his children which he shall leaue:
55 So that he wil not giue to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eate: because hee hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitnesse wherewith thine enemies shal distresse thee, in all thy gates.
56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not aduenture to set the sole of her foote vpon the ground, for delicatenesse and tendernesse, her eye shall be euill towards the husband of her bosome, and towards her sonne, and towards her daughter,
57 And towards her yong one that commeth out from betweene her feete, and towards her children which shee shall beare: for shee shall eate them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitnes, wherewith thine enemie shall distresse thee in thy gates.
63 And it shall come to passe, that as the Lord reioyced ouer you to doe you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will reioyce ouer you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shalbe plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possesse it.
64 And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth, euen vnto the other: and there thou shalt serue other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers haue knowen, euen wood and stone.
67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were Euen: and at Euen thou shalt say, Would God it were morning, for the feare of thine heart wherewith thou shalt feare, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt againe, with ships, by the way whereof I spake vnto thee, Thou shalt see it no more againe: and there ye shall bee sold vnto your enemies for bondmen, and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

The only gateway to the Top is total obedience, a diligent work with God at all time.

Obey “I AM”, the law is still in full effect for Christians; do not think the Law has been put away. Obey the Laws of the Great “I AM” and live.
Biodun Williams's Deuteronomy Chapter 28 comment on 1/27/2013, 11:25am...
God’s blessings, are constantly available for those that love and honour Him. As a matter of fact it is not a denominational thing, but truly what He has, in His Kingdom. And that indicates that, whosoever has genuinely and truly given his life to the LORD, is already, in the family of God. Hence, through the agency of the Holy Spirit he can partake of the best that God has made available. This book of Deuteronomy is one of those areas, in the Holy Writ where it reveals the kind of blessings that God has promised for he that loveth and believeth Him through Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The beginning of it, in verse 1, talks about, what God, will do for such that is fully committed to Him through hearkening, listening and constant obedience to His commandments. And then it says, in verse 2, that all these blessings shall come and overtake you if you shall hearken to the voice of thy God. What does that connote? It connotes that God, in His eternal faithfulness demands committed obedience from all His children- and when you come to think about it, that shouldn’t be a thing of difficulty- and that is when we consider who God is and the fact that He is love. Well, there, in that commencement of scriptures and some other part of that chapter, are a great promises that talk about over flowing blessings. It refers to blessings that would spring forth, and come in such a way that it would totally and completely take care of whatever needs that you and I are confronted with. The truth is, God has declared His Word, and yet it is only beneficial to the hearer and doers of His dictates. The conditions, terms and provisos attached to this, through this Deuteronomy 28, are to diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD and observe to do according to all His commandments.. Please, look at that word “voice”. It means ‘His Voice’-and that is ‘God’s Voice’ and not that of a man, even though primarily He’ll speak through the agency of His Word and through the Holy Spirit. He also speaks through His servants and that aspect of the preached word is considered as secondary. The fact is, if we are diligent and fully committed enough to honour the conditions of His dictates, then overflowing blessing become guaranteed. God has agreed, covenanted and promised to meet, all the needs of those that love Him- and that is, He desires to shower on you and I, His blessings, and that is to the degree or the level of commitment and trust that we put on His Word. Therefore, it is wise and appropriate, to reflect upon, listen to, peruse, research, dwell upon and practice His Word. It is only for they that crave for, thirst after, love and believes His lovingkindness. And that is, hidden in His righteousness.

Obedience is the best thing, obey the Lord, our GOD.
Essy's Deuteronomy Chapter 28 comment on 1/10/2013, 1:27am...
Obedience is better than sacrifice. If you want to prosper in life, be obedient, for the bible says if you listen diligently, the Lord will set you above nations. If you want to prosper, be obedient.
A's Deuteronomy Chapter 28 comment about verse 41 on 11/28/2012, 12:27am...
It appears that if the world does fall into totalitarianism, some sort of thing like that could happen, especially if the powers that be mandate to the people to increase workforces lean on these principles.
Sir. Henry's Deuteronomy Chapter 28 comment on 10/21/2012, 6:03am...
The only way toward the success is through obeying the LORD and keeping his commandments.
Ikechukwu Ajufo's Deuteronomy Chapter 28 comment on 10/18/2012, 6:33am...
It pays to dwell in the word of God. Deuteronomy 28 is not meant to scare Christians as most readers stop at verse 13. It is meant to help our weakness and keep our steadfastness in God's faithfulness. Jesus has deleted all curses of the law. Praise God!
