And they will destroy your eyes and take the away your life. You will not have success when you plant your seed. And your one who are enemies will eat your crops. I will be against you, so your enemies will defeat you. These enemies will hate you and will rule over you. You will run away even when no one is chasing you. After these things, if you still don’t obey me (god), I will punish you seven times more for your sins. And I will destroy the great cities that make you proud.
