21 ‘If then, you 1aact with hostility against Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you bseven times according to your sins.
22 ‘aI will let loose among you the beasts of the field, which will bereave you of your children and destroy your cattle and reduce your number so that byour roads lie deserted.
23 ‘aAnd if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me,
24 then I will aact with hostility against you; and I, even I, will strike you bseven times for your sins.
25 ‘I will also bring upon you a sword which will execute avengeance for the covenant; and when you gather together into your cities, I will send bpestilence among you, so that you shall be delivered into enemy hands.
26 ‘aWhen I break your staff of bread, ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread 1in rationed amounts, so that you will beat and not be satisfied.
27 ‘Yet if in spite of this you do not obey Me, but act with hostility against Me,
28 then aI will act with wrathful hostility against you, and I, even I, will punish you seven times for your sins.
