29And you will grope at noon as the blind grope in the dark, and you will not prosper in your ways; and you will only be oppressed and besieged forever, and no one will save you.

30You will marry a woman, and another man will lie with her; you shall build a house, but not dwell in it; You shall plant a vineyard and not pick its grapes.

31Your ox shall be slaughtered in your sight, and you shall not eat of it; your donkey will be forcibly removed from your face and will not be returned to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you will not have to redeem them.

32Your sons and your daughters will be given to another people, and your eyes will see them, and they will fail for them all day; and there will be no power in your hand.

33The fruit of your land and all your labor will eat up a nation you never knew; and you shall only be oppressed and crushed forever:

34So that you get angry at the sight of your eyes that you will see.

38You will bring much seed into the field and reap little; for the locust will eat it up.

39You will plant vineyards and till them, but you will not drink the wine and you will not harvest the grapes; for the worms will eat them.

40You shall have olive trees in all your borders, but you shall not anoint yourself with oil; for your olive tree will bear its fruit.

43The stranger that is within you will rise far above you; and you will descend very deep.

44He will lend you and you will not lend him; he will be the head and you will be the tail.

45Besides, all these curses will come upon you and will pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed; because you didn't listen to the voice ofHerryour God to keep his commandments and statutes which he commanded you:

46And they will be a sign and a wonder upon you and upon your seed forever.

47Because you didn't serveHerryour God with joy and gladness of heart over the fullness of all things;

48Therefore thou shalt serve thy enemies, theHerrwill send against you in hunger and thirst and in nakedness and in want of everything; and he will put an iron yoke on your neck until he destroys you.

49ÖHerrThey will bring against you a people from afar, from the ends of the earth, swift as the flight of an eagle; a nation whose language you do not understand;

50A fierce-faced nation, neither looking at the person of the old nor showing favor to the young:

51And he will eat of the fruit of your cattle and of the fruit of your land until you are destroyed; who will not leave you wheat, or brandy, or oil, or your oxen, or flocks, or flocks, until he has destroyed you.

52And he will besiege you in all your gates, until your high and strong walls in which you have trusted fall in all your land; and will besiege you in all your gates throughout your landHerryour god gave you

53And you shall eat of the fruit of your womb, the flesh of your sons and your daughtersHerryour God has given you in siege and in need, with which your enemies will oppress you.

54So the man among you who is tender and very tender will be angry with his brother and with the wife of his breast and with the rest of his children whom he leaves behind:

(Video) Bible Book 05. Deuteronomy Complete 1-34, King James Version (KJV) Read Along Bible

55lest he give any of them the flesh of his children that he eats; for he will have nothing left in the siege and in the distress with which your enemies press against you in all your gates.

56The tender and tender woman among you, who does not dare to put the sole of her foot on the ground out of tenderness and tenderness, her eyes will be angry at the husband of her breast and at her son and at her daughter,

57and for her offspring that come forth from between her feet, and for the children that she shall bear;

58Unless you are careful to keep all the words of this law written in this book, to fear that glorious and terrible name,the Lord your God;

59Then theHerrhe will make your plagues wonderful and the plagues of your seed, even great plagues and long lasting, and severe diseases and long lasting.

60Besides, he will bring upon you all the plagues of Egypt that you fear; and they will cling to you.

61Every sickness and every plague that is not written in the book of this law will also be themHerrwill come upon you until you are destroyed.

62And ye shall be few in number, while ye are like the stars of heaven to multitudes; because you didn't want to obey her voiceHerryour God.

63And it will happen like thatHerrI was happy to do you good and increase you; then theHerrwill rejoice over you, destroy you and bring you to naught; and you will be torn out of the land where you are going to possess it.

64It's atHerrthey will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other; and there you will serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers knew, wood and stone.

65And among these peoples you will not find rest, nor will the soles of your feet find rest; but theHerrthere will give you a trembling heart, dwindling eyes and melancholy:

66And your life will doubt before you; and you will fear day and night and will not be sure of your life:

67In the morning you will say: If only God were just! and in the evening you will say: I wish it were in the morning! by the fear of your heart, which you will dread, and by the sight of your eyes, which you will see.

68It's atHerrI will take you back to Egypt in ships just as I told you, you will never see it again; and there you will be sold to your enemies as slaves, male and female, and no one will buy you.
