You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the field.
You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out. 1
A curse on anyone who is lax in doing the Lord’s work! A curse on anyone who keeps from carrying out his destruction! 1
“There will be harsh condemnation for the hypocrite who has a valuable male animal in his flock but vows and sacrifices something inferior to the Lord. For I am a great king,” 1 says the Lord who rules over all, “and my name is awesome among the nations.”
