14 But if you will not listen to me, and will not do all these mitzvot;
15 and if you shall reject my statutes, and if your soul abhor my ordinances, so that you will not do all my mitzvot, but break my covenant;
16 I also will do this to you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that shall consume the eyes, and make the soul to pine away; and you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
17 I will set my face against you, and you shall be struck before your enemies: those who hate you shall rule over you; and you shall flee when none pursues you.
18 If you will not yet for these things listen to me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins.
19 I will break the pride of your power: and I will make your sky as iron, and your eretz as brass;
20 and your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.
21 If you walk contrary to me, and won't listen to me, I will bring seven times more plagues on you according to your sins.
22 I will send the animal of the field among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your ways shall become desolate.
23 If by these things you won't be reformed to me, but will walk contrary to me;
24 then will I also walk contrary to you; and I will strike you, even I, seven times for your sins.
25 I will bring a sword on you, that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant; and you shall be gathered together within your cities: and I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
26 When I break your staff of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver your bread again by weight: and you shall eat, and not be satisfied.
27 If you won't for all this listen to me, but walk contrary to me;
28 then I will walk contrary to you in wrath; and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins.
29 You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat.
30 I will destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-images, and cast your dead bodies on the bodies of your idols; and my soul shall abhor you.
