The blessings (Deut 28:1-28:14)

“If you will only obey Yahweh your God, by diligently observing all his commandments that I am commanding you today, Yahweh your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of Yahweh your God.

Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field.

Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your livestock, both the increase of your cattle, and the issue of your flock.

Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

Yahweh will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways.

Yahweh will command the blessing upon you in your barns, and in all that you undertake.

He will bless you in the land that Yahweh your God is giving you.”

There were 6 blessings that concerned your work, whether in the town or the fields. Everything will be fruitful for you. You will have bread to eat. You are blessed when you come and leave your house. Your enemies will fall before you and flee in 7 directions. Everything you do will be blessed by Yahweh if you follow his commandments.

“Yahweh will establish you as his holy people, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of Yahweh your God, and walk in his ways. All the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of Yahweh. They shall be afraid of you. Yahweh will make you abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb, and in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground in the land that Yahweh swore to your ancestors to give you. Yahweh will open for you his rich storehouse, the heavens, to give the rain on your land in its season and to bless all your undertakings. You will lend to many nations. But you will not borrow. Yahweh will make you the head and not the tail. You shall be only at the top and not at the bottom, if you obey the commandments of Yahweh your God, which I am commanding you today, by diligently observing them. If you do not turn aside from any of the words that I am commanding you today, either to the right or to the left, following other gods to serve them.”

You will be successful in all that you do. You must only obey God and everything will be wonderful with you as you will be rich and powerful. You have to walk in his ways. You will be fruitful with children, livestock, and field produce. You will have the correct amount of rain. You will be on top and the head of everything. Everyone will borrow from you, but you will not borrow from them. Only you have to obey diligently the commandments by not straying to the left or the right. Of course, never serve other gods.
