Deuteronomy 28:47-48

Context
The Curse of Military Siege

28:47 “Because you have not served the Lord your God joyfully and wholeheartedly with the abundance of everything you have, 28:48 instead in hunger, thirst, nakedness, and poverty 1  you will serve your enemies whom the Lord will send against you. They 2  will place an iron yoke on your neck until they have destroyed you.

1 tn Heb “lack of everything.”

2 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).
