21  and YHWH shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that is written in this book of the law.

21  And the Lord shall separate that man for evil of all the children of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in the book of this law.

21  and consume him unto perdition out of all the tribes of Israel, according to the curses which are contained in the book of this law and in the covenant.

22  And the generation to come, your children that shall rise up after you, and the foreigner that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses wherewith YHWH hath made it sick;

22  And the subsequent generation would speak out, along with the sons who will be born afterward. And the sojourners, who will arrive from far away, will see the plagues of that land and the infirmities with which the Lord will have afflicted it,

23  and that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and a burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which YHWH overthrew in His anger, and in His wrath;

23  having burned it with sulphur and molten salt, so that it can no longer be sown. And certainly no greenery would spring up, as in the example of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the Lord overturned with his wrath and fury.

24  even all the nations shall say 'Wherefore hath YHWH done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?'

24  and all the nations shall say, Why has the Lord done thus to this land? what is this great fierceness of anger?

24  And so, all the nations would say: ‘Why has the Lord acted this way toward this land? What is this immense wrath of his fury?’

25  then men shall say: 'Because they forsook the covenant of YHWH, the God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them forth out of the land of Egypt;

25  And they will respond: ‘Because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, which he formed with their fathers, when he led them away from the land of Egypt.

26  and went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods that they knew not, and that He had not allotted unto them;

26  and they went and served other gods, which they knew not, neither did he assign them to them.

26  For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them

27  therefore the anger of YHWH was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curse that is written in this book;

27  And the Lord was exceedingly angry with that land to bring upon it according to all the curses which are written in the book of this law.

27  For this reason, the fury of the Lord was enraged against this land, so as to lead over it all the curses which have been written in this volume.

28  and YHWH rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day'.--

28  And he has cast them out of their own land, with anger and fury, and with a very great indignation, and he has thrown them into a strange land, just as has been proven this day.’
