Deuteronomy 28:25

Context
Curses by Defeat and Deportation

28:25 “The Lord will allow you to be struck down before your enemies; you will attack them from one direction but flee from them in seven directions and will become an object of terror 1  to all the kingdoms of the earth.

Deuteronomy 28:48

Context
28:48 instead in hunger, thirst, nakedness, and poverty 2  you will serve your enemies whom the Lord will send against you. They 3  will place an iron yoke on your neck until they have destroyed you.

1 tc The meaningless MT reading זַעֲוָה (zaavah) is clearly a transposition of the more commonly attested Hebrew noun זְוָעָה (zÿvaah, “terror”).

2 tn Heb “lack of everything.”

3 tn Heb “he” (also later in this verse). The pronoun is a collective singular referring to the enemies (cf. CEV, NLT). Many translations understand the singular pronoun to refer to the Lord (cf. NAB, NASB, NIV, NCV, NRSV, TEV).
