  • 58 "If you are not careful to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, the LORD your God,
    59 then the LORD will bring on you and your offspring extraordinary afflictions, afflictions severe and lasting, and sicknesses grievous and lasting.
    60 And he will bring upon you again all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you.
    61 Every sickness also and every affliction that is not recorded in the book of this law, the LORD will bring upon you, until you are destroyed.
    62 Whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, you shall be left few in number, because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God.
    63 And as the LORD took delight in doing you good and multiplying you, so the LORD will take delight in bringing ruin upon you and destroying you. And you shall be plucked off the land that you are entering to take possession of it.
    64 "And the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known.
    65 And among these nations you shall find no respite, and there shall be no resting place for the sole of your foot, but the LORD will give you there a trembling heart and failing eyes and a languishing soul.
    66 Your life shall hang in doubt before you. Night and day you shall be in dread and have no assurance of your life.
    67 In the morning you shall say, 'If only it were evening!' and at evening you shall say, 'If only it were morning!' because of the dread that your heart shall feel, and the sights that your eyes shall see.
    68 And the LORD will bring you back in ships to Egypt, a journey that I promised that you should never make again; and there you shall offer yourselves for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but there will be no buyer."

Thinking & Understanding
By rebelling and being disobedient, the Israelites will, eventually, foolishly choose to bring on themselves the shame and abuse they endured in the past as slaves (v. 60). This won’t simply be a step backwards but will tragically result in the cancelling of the covenant God made with Abraham (v. 62). They will depart from God to pursue their idea of the highest happiness, but they will only gain a life of utter despair as a result (vv. 64-68).

Who is God?
Vv. 58-59 God warned that terrifying disasters would befall those who treated his word carelessly, and the wounds inflicted on them would endure and not heal easily. The disasters would be so fierce that they would leave everything in ruins. Let us therefore think seriously how we are responding to God’s word.

Vv. 66-68 God would not even let the Israelites be sold back to Egypt as slaves. If a heavenly citizen turns their back on God, their life will be no better than the beasts of the field. They will be unprotected, and they will even hope to never wake again. Let’s not forget that if we lose God we will also lose all of our hope and strength to live.

Prayer
Lord, help us to not live pitiful lives by losing our spiritual freedom through disobedience.
