15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of YHWH thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.
15 But if you are not willing to listen to the voice of the Lord your God, so as to keep and do all his commandments and ceremonies, which I instruct to you this day, all these curses shall come to you, and take hold of you.
16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
16 Cursed shall you be in the city, cursed in the field.
17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy kneading-trough.
17 Cursed shall be your barn, and cursed your storehouses.
18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the young of thy flock.
19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
19 Cursed shall you be entering, and cursed departing.
20 YHWH will send upon thee cursing, discomfiture, and rebuke, in all that thou puttest thy hand unto to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the evil of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken Me.
20 The Lord send upon thee want, and famine, and consumption of all things on which thou shalt put thy hand, until he shall have utterly destroyed thee, and until he shall have consumed thee quickly because of thine evil devices, because thou hast forsaken me.

21 YHWH will make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until He have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest in to possess it.
21 May the Lord join a pestilence to you, until he consumes you from the land, which you shall enter so as to possess.
22 YHWH will smite thee with consumption, and with fever, and with inflammation, and with fiery heat, and with drought, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
