28:4 Blessed, shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle,the young of thy kine, and the ewes of thy flock:
28:5 Blessed, shall be thy basket, and thy kneading-trough:
28:6 Blessed, shalt thou be when thou comest in,and, blessed, shalt thou be when thou goest out:
28:11 And Yahweh will cause thee to abound in that which is good, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy soil,upon the soil which Yahweh sware unto thy fathers, to give unto thee:
28:12 Yahweh will open unto thee his rich storehousethe heavens, to give the rain of thy land in its season, and to bless every work of thy hand, so shalt thou lend unto many nations, but, thou, shalt not borrow:
28:13 And Yahweh, will give thee, to be the head, and not the tail, and thou shalt be only above, and shalt not be beneath,because thou dost hearken unto the commandments of Yahweh thy God, which I am commanding thee, today, to observe and to do;
28:14 and dost not turn side from any of the words which I am commanding you today, to the right hand or to the left,to go after other gods, to serve them.

28:17 Cursed, shall be thy basket, and thy kneading-trough:
28:18 Cursed, shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground,the young of thy kine, and the ewes of thy flock:
28:19 Cursed, shalt thou be, when thou comest in,and, cursed, shalt thou be, when thou goest out:
