Threat And Blessing Following Covenant Disobedience

25 When you father sons and sons of sons, and when you shall have remained long in the land and have dealt corruptly by making a graven image, the likeness of anything, and shall do evil in the sight of Jehovah your God, to provoke Him to anger, 26 I call Heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you shall soon utterly perish from off the land which you are crossing over Jordan to possess. You shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. 27 And Jehovah shall scatter you among the nations, and you shall be left few in number among the nations where Jehovah shall drive you.
