    It is a blessing to obey God Words.
  • BaNathShal Ahayah
    This chapter by far reveals who the Children of Israel are today and what would befall them. If they chose to obey they would receive the blessings, if the disobeyed..the curses. These curses from verses 15-68 describe what happened to the Children of Israel till today. The last verse is a huge clue of who went into slavery in "ships and sold as bondmen and bondwomen, that is the so-called Negro.
