    And all through Galatians Paul uses faithful Abraham as an example of faith and GOD shows what Abraham did with faith Genesis 26 5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

    The 4th Commandment is "Keep the 7th day holy". This is a BIG example of GOD 7 4 Theory. Sabbath 7 letters Shabbat 7 Shabbos 7 is the seventh 7 day.

    The swelling of The Belly is Kwashiorkor,The Body Retaining Water, in The Feet, Legs, Arms etc. Is Oedema. Has Nothing to do with The Bread.

    My thought on this curse is a medical one. Those who have been seriously deprived of protein will lose much weight. Then when followed with water and carbohydrates (the bread) causes swelling of the abdomen, as witnessed by seeing starving children in Africa. Again this is based merely on my medical education, NOT on a vast knowledge of Bible curses.
