The Curses for Disobedience to Ha Shem 14 - 39 5 sets of sevens

First Stage 14-17

26:14 But if you will not listen to Me, and will not do all these mitzvah;

26:15 And if you shall despise My statutes, or if your nefesh abhor My mishpatim, so that you will not do all My mitzvah, [but] that you break MY BRIT:

26:16 I also will do this to you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

26:17 And I will set My face against you, and you shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and you shall flee when none pursues you.

The Second Stage 18-20

26:18 And if you will not yet for all this listen to me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

26:19 And I will break the ge'on (pride) of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your eretz as brass:

26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

The Third stage 21-22

26:21 And if you walk contrary to Me, and will not listen to Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.

26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your [high] ways shall be desolate.

The Fourth stage 23-26

26:23 And if you will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary to Me;

26:24 Then will I also walk contrary to you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.

26:25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of [My] Brit: and when you are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

26:26 [And] when I have broken the staff of your lechem, ten women shall bake your lechem in one oven, and they shall deliver [you] your lechem again by weight: and you shall eat, and not be satisfied.

The fifth Stage 27 - 39

26:27 And if you will not for all this listen to me, but walk contrary to Me;

26:28 Then I will walk contrary to you also in fury; and I, erev I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

26:29 And you shall eat the flesh of your banim, and the flesh of your banot shall you eat.

26:30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my nefesh shall abhor you.

26:31 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.

26:32 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

The exile lasted 70 yrs to make up for the neglected sabbaticals

26:34 Then shall the land enjoy her Shabbatot, as long as it lies desolate, and you [be] in your enemies' land; [even] then shall the land rest, and enjoy her Shabbatot.

26:35 As long as it lies desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your Shabbatot, when you dwelt upon it.(2 Chronicles 36:21)

26:36 And upon them that are left [alive] of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.

26:37 They shall stumble over one another, as if to escape a sword, though none pursues. And you shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

26:38 And you shall perish among the heathen, and the eretz your enemies shall eat you up.

26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their avot shall they pine away with them.

Restoration through Confession and Teshuvah 40-46

26:40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their avot, with their trespass which they trespassed against Me, and that also they have walked contrary to me;

26:41 And [that] I also have walked contrary to them, and have brought them into the eretz their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:


26:43 The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her Shabbatot, while she lies desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, erev because they despised My mishpatim, and because their nefesh abhorred My statutes.

26:44 And yet for all that, when they be in the eretz their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break MY BRIT with them: for ANI YEHOVAH (יהוה) their Elohim (אלהים).

26:45 But I will for their sakes zakar the Brit of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the eretz Mitzrayim in the sight of the nations, that I might be their Elohim (אלהים): ANI YEHOVAH (יהוה).

26:46 These [are] the statutes and mishpatim and Torah, which YEHOVAH (יהוה) made between him and the benai Yisrael in mount Sinai by the hand of Mosheh.
