YAHWEH’s Blessings for US Today

March 12, 2024

Deuteronomy 28:1-14 in the Charles Thomson Septuagint Version of the Old Testament states:

NOW it shall come to pass, that IF thou (True Israel) wilt hearken diligently to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep and perform ALL these commandments which I this day give thee in charge, the LORD thy God will set thee high above ALL the nations of the earth; and all these BLESSINGS shall come upon thee, and find thee.

IF thou wilt hearken diligently to the voice of the LORD thy God, BLESSED shalt thou be in the city; and BLESSED shalt thou be in the field, BLESSED shall be the fruit of thy body, and the products of thy land, and thy herds, and thy flocks.  BLESSED shall be thy granaries, and thy stores.

BLESSED shalt thou be when thou comest in, and BLESSED when thou goest out.  May the LORD thy God deliver up thine enemies, who rise up against thee, to be smitten before thee.  They shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

The LORD send upon thee the BLESSING in thy storehouses, and on all the labors of thy hands, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

The LORD establish thee a holy people for Himself, as He solemnly promised thy fathers.  IF thou wilt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and walk in ALL His ways, THEN shall ALL the nations of the earth see that thou art called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of thee; and the LORD thy God will multiply thee, for good, in the offspring of thy body, and in the increase of thy cattle, and in the products of thy ground, in the land which He solemnly promised thy fathers to give thee.

The LORD open for thee His good treasury, the heaven, to give thy land the rain in due season.  May He BLESS ALL the works of thy hands, so that thou mayst lend to many nations, and not borrow of them; and that thou mayst rule over many nations, and they not rule over thee.  May the LORD establish thee for a head and not for a tail, so that thou mayst be above, and not beneath.

IF thou wilt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep ALL that I this day enjoin thee, thou wilt not turn aside from ALL the commandments which I this day command thee, either to the right, or to the left, to go after other gods, to serve them.
