But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord 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:


Unlike the curse of Adam and the curse on Eve that were brief, heavyweight statements, the curse of Moses was delivered in great detail. It is interesting to see how these detailed curses have played out in the life of the nation of Israel. Let’s look at the details of the curse. The curses of Moses were directed at the Jews. These curses were to come upon them because of their disobedience.

The Details of the Curse

 1. The curse on everything you do: Deuteronomy 28:20-21

The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, IN ALL THAT THOU SETTEST THINE HAND UNTO for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. The Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he has consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

2. The curse of strange diseases that wipe out the population: Deuteronomy 28:21-22

 The Lord shall make THE PESTILENCE CLEAVE UNTO THEE, UNTIL HE HAVE CONSUMED THEE from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

3. The curse of being driven into every nation of the world: Deuteronomy 28:25

The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them: and SHALT BE REMOVED INTO ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE EARTH.

 Indeed, the curse of being driven into every nation of the world has happened practically to the people of Israel. Jews have mysteriously been driven from place to place. This repeated persecution, recurring expulsion and migration has never happened to any other group of people on earth.

4. The curse of bodies lying outside and being eaten by birds: Deuteronomy 28:26

 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

This curse of dead bodies lying in the open and without being buried was fulfilled practically in AD 70. In the year AD 66 the Jews of Judea rebelled against their Roman masters. In response, the Emperor Nero dispatched an army under the generalship of Vespasian to restore order. Vespasian landed in Antioch and took command. Vespasian’s son, Titus, marched up from Egypt, and after linking up with his father, the Romans now moved inland into the region of Galilee. Battles were fought on both land and on the lake of Galilee. During the battle, the hill on which the Temple stood was covered in flames. The blood that poured from those who were slain was so much that the ground was no longer visible. The streets were covered with corpses; with soldiers pursuing fugitives over the piles of dead bodies.

 5. The curse of your wife being taken away from you: Deuteronomy 28:30

 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

The curse of wives being taken away from their husbands was fulfilled practically during the Second World War. Males and females were always separated at the concentration camps. Many parents chose to hide their children, claiming that they were non-Jewish orphans of war. Families began to be forced apart from each other and many families vowed to find each other after the war.

Some families’ desire to remain together often left them with the only option of going into hiding. During the war, it was extremely difficult to hide from the Germans. Indeed, some Jewish families were forced to live cut off from the world for long periods of time, sometimes years.

I would like to share just these five curses for the benefit of this devotional. You may look up to the book writing by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills on the topic- “How to Neutralize Curses for more information.


Dear Lord! We pray against any hanging curses because of the curse of Moses now in Jesus’ name, amen.
