Deuteronomy 28:1–14

Blessings for Obedience

28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully followg all his commandsh I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.i All these blessings will come on youj and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

You will be blessedk in the city and blessed in the country.l

The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.m

Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.n

The Lord will grant that the enemieso who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.p

The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will blessq you in the land he is giving you.

The Lord will establish you as his holy people,r as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commandss of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the namet of the Lord, and they will fear you. 11 The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestocku and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.v

12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehousew of his bounty,x to send rainy on your land in season and to blessz all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.a 13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully followb them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.c 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left,d following other gods and serving them.
