45 All these curses will come on you. They will pursue you and overtake you(A) until you are destroyed,(B) because you did not obey the Lord your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you. 46 They will be a sign and a wonder to you and your descendants forever.(C) 47 Because you did not serve(D) the Lord your God joyfully and gladly(E) in the time of prosperity, 48 therefore in hunger and thirst,(F) in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the Lord sends against you. He will put an iron yoke(G) on your neck(H) until he has destroyed you.

45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

47 Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
