Deuteronomy 28

I did this chapter early in the process in several sections. It is formative as a summary of Deuteronomy. It is also the ground of the critique of Deuteronomy that is the book of Job. It surprises me that I have done so much of Deuteronomy. It just sort of happened. Perhaps inadvertently in doing this chapter, I covered so much of the phrasing in the book, that the automated routines successively put related chapters in front of me from Deuteronomy, Joshua, Kings, and Chronicles. I happened today to note the frequent pairing in these books of keeping or keeping watch and doing of the commandments.

I noted in a manual check of concordance of phrasing that this pair of words often occur without an object, and that the KJV among others fill in a direct object like them to help the reader. I have a practice of not helping the reader, since that often means the reader will fail to read, or will read in its favorite biased interpretation. We remain impersonal when we do this - so its is a suitable pronoun.

In deciding not to fill in an object, the word שׁמר, requires a gloss that will stand alone. My glosses for this word are so far: --(1), adamant(1), can shelter(1), disregard(1), dregs(2), guard(13), guarded(5), guardian(1), guards(3), keep watch(21), keep(151), keeper(6), keepers(10), keeping(17), keeps watch(1), keeps(5), kept myself(2), kept themselves(1), kept(36), more than watching(1), night watches(2), one keeps(1), one shelters(1), ordinance(2), shamir(1), shelter(6), sheltered(1), sheltering(4), shelters(3), shemer(2), spike(4), watch(33), watched(3), watches(9), watching(6)

You can see it is frequently used and has a number of shades of meaning and homonyms. You can also see a problem I have counting significant root forms in English.

Here is Deuteronomy 28 in one chunk with some punctuation adjustments and in the new format. Note the patterns in the use of initial verse accents (first note).

Deuteronomy 28 Fn Min Max Syll
וְהָיָ֗ה אִם־שָׁמ֤וֹעַ תִּשְׁמַע֙ בְּקוֹל֙ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֔יךָ לִשְׁמֹ֤ר לַעֲשׂוֹת֙ אֶת־כָּל־מִצְוֺתָ֔יו אֲשֶׁ֛ר אָנֹכִ֥י מְצַוְּךָ֖ הַיּ֑וֹם

וְאָכַלְתָּ֣ פְרִֽי־בִטְנְךָ֗ בְּשַׂ֤ר בָּנֶ֙יךָ֙ וּבְנֹתֶ֔יךָ אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָֽתַן־לְךָ֖ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֑יךָ
בְּמָצוֹר֙ וּבְמָצ֔וֹק אֲשֶׁר־יָצִ֥יק לְךָ֖ אֹיְבֶֽךָ
53 And you will eat the fruit of your belly, the flesh of your sons and your daughters that Yahweh your God gave to you,
in the siege and in the agony that your enemy will make you agonize.
3e 4C 30
15
הָאִישׁ֙ הָרַ֣ךְ בְּךָ֔ וְהֶעָנֹ֖ג מְאֹ֑ד
תֵּרַ֨ע עֵינ֤וֹ בְאָחִיו֙ וּבְאֵ֣שֶׁת חֵיק֔וֹ וּבְיֶ֥תֶר בָּנָ֖יו אֲשֶׁ֥ר יוֹתִֽיר
54 The tender man among you and very delicate,
his eye will bring evil against his brother and against the wife of his embrace, and against the surplus of his children that he has left over.
3e 4C 12
21
מִתֵּ֣ת ׀ לְאַחַ֣ד מֵהֶ֗ם מִבְּשַׂ֤ר בָּנָיו֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר יֹאכֵ֔ל מִבְּלִ֥י הִשְׁאִֽיר־ל֖וֹ כֹּ֑ל
בְּמָצוֹר֙ וּבְמָצ֔וֹק אֲשֶׁ֨ר יָצִ֥יק לְךָ֛ אֹיִבְךָ֖ בְּכָל־שְׁעָרֶֽיךָ
55 He will refrain from giving to one of them from the flesh of his children that he eats in that there is no meat for him,
in the siege and in the agony that your enemy will make you agonize in all your gates.
3d 4C 21
21
הָרַכָּ֨ה בְךָ֜ וְהָעֲנֻגָּ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֨ר לֹא־נִסְּתָ֤ה כַף־רַגְלָהּ֙ הַצֵּ֣ג עַל־הָאָ֔רֶץ מֵהִתְעַנֵּ֖ג וּמֵרֹ֑ךְ
תֵּרַ֤ע עֵינָהּ֙ בְּאִ֣ישׁ חֵיקָ֔הּ וּבִבְנָ֖הּ וּבְבִתָּֽהּ
56 The tender and delicate woman among you that will not tempt to exhibit the sole of her foot on the earth out of delicacy and out of tenderness,
her eye will bring evil against the man of her embrace and against her son and against her daughter.
3e 4C 31
14
וּֽבְשִׁלְיָתָ֞הּ הַיּוֹצֵ֣ת ׀ מִבֵּ֣ין רַגְלֶ֗יהָ וּבְבָנֶ֙יהָ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר תֵּלֵ֔ד כִּֽי־תֹאכְלֵ֥ם בְּחֹֽסֶר־כֹּ֖ל בַּסָּ֑תֶר
בְּמָצוֹר֙ וּבְמָצ֔וֹק אֲשֶׁ֨ר יָצִ֥יק לְךָ֛ אֹיִבְךָ֖ בִּשְׁעָרֶֽיךָ
57 And of the afterbirth that comes out from between her feet and toward her children that she has given birth to, for she will eat them when lacking everything, in secret,
in the siege and in the agony that your enemy will make you agonize in your gates.
3d 4B 30
19
אִם־לֹ֨א תִשְׁמֹ֜ר לַעֲשׂ֗וֹת אֶת־כָּל־דִּבְרֵי֙ הַתּוֹרָ֣ה הַזֹּ֔את הַכְּתוּבִ֖ים בַּסֵּ֣פֶר הַזֶּ֑ה
לְ֠יִרְאָה אֶת־הַשֵּׁ֞ם הַנִּכְבָּ֤ד וְהַנּוֹרָא֙ הַזֶּ֔ה אֵ֖ת יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֶֽיךָ
58 If you do not keep and do all the words of this instruction written in this record,
to fear this glorious and fearful name, Yahweh your God,
3e 4C 24
22
וְהִפְלָ֤א יְהוָה֙ אֶת־מַכֹּ֣תְךָ֔ וְאֵ֖ת מַכּ֣וֹת זַרְעֶ֑ךָ
מַכּ֤וֹת גְּדֹלוֹת֙ וְנֶ֣אֱמָנ֔וֹת וָחֳלָיִ֥ם רָעִ֖ים וְנֶאֱמָנִֽים
59 then Yahweh will make extraordinary your defeats and the defeats of your seed,
great and dependable defeats and evil dependable sicknesses.
3e 4C 16
21
וְהֵשִׁ֣יב בְּךָ֗ אֵ֚ת כָּל־מַדְוֵ֣ה מִצְרַ֔יִם אֲשֶׁ֥ר יָגֹ֖רְתָּ מִפְּנֵיהֶ֑ם
וְדָבְק֖וּ בָּֽךְ
60 then he will return within you all the infirmities of Egypt whose presence you were afraid of,
and they will cling within you.
3e 4C 19
4
גַּ֤ם כָּל־חֳלִי֙ וְכָל־מַכָּ֔ה אֲשֶׁר֙ לֹ֣א כָת֔וּב בְּסֵ֖פֶר הַתּוֹרָ֣ה הַזֹּ֑את
יַעְלֵ֤ם יְהוָה֙ עָלֶ֔יךָ עַ֖ד הִשָּׁמְדָֽךְ
61 C Furthermore all illness and all defeat that is not inscribed in the record of this instruction,
Yahweh will make ascendant over you until you are exterminated.
3e 4C 21
11
וְנִשְׁאַרְתֶּם֙ בִּמְתֵ֣י מְעָ֔ט תַּ֚חַת אֲשֶׁ֣ר הֱיִיתֶ֔ם כְּכוֹכְבֵ֥י הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם לָרֹ֑ב
כִּי־לֹ֣א שָׁמַ֔עְתָּ בְּק֖וֹל יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֶֽיךָ
62 And you will be bereft, a few men, instead of what you were, as the stars of the heavens for multitude,
for you did not hear with the voice of Yahweh your God.
3e 4C 23
12
וְ֠הָיָה כַּאֲשֶׁר־שָׂ֨שׂ יְהוָ֜ה עֲלֵיכֶ֗ם לְהֵיטִ֣יב אֶתְכֶם֮ וּלְהַרְבּ֣וֹת אֶתְכֶם֒ כֵּ֣ן יָשִׂ֤ישׂ יְהוָה֙ עֲלֵיכֶ֔ם לְהַאֲבִ֥יד אֶתְכֶ֖ם וּלְהַשְׁמִ֣יד אֶתְכֶ֑ם
וְנִסַּחְתֶּם֙ מֵעַ֣ל הָֽאֲדָמָ֔ה אֲשֶׁר־אַתָּ֥ה בָא־שָׁ֖מָּה לְרִשְׁתָּֽהּ
63 ~ And it will happen that as Yahweh sang for joy over you to do you good and to make you increase, so Yahweh will sing for joy over you to make you perish and to exterminate you,
and you will be plucked from the ground that you are going toward to possess it.
3e 4C 41
20
וֶהֱפִֽיצְךָ֤ יְהוָה֙ בְּכָל־הָ֣עַמִּ֔ים מִקְצֵ֥ה הָאָ֖רֶץ וְעַד־קְצֵ֣ה הָאָ֑רֶץ
וְעָבַ֨דְתָּ שָּׁ֜ם אֱלֹהִ֣ים אֲחֵרִ֗ים אֲשֶׁ֧ר לֹא־יָדַ֛עְתָּ אַתָּ֥ה וַאֲבֹתֶ֖יךָ עֵ֥ץ וָאָֽבֶן
64 And Yahweh will disperse you among all the peoples from one extremity of the earth and to the other extremity of the earth,
and you will serve there other gods that neither you yourselves nor your ancestors know, of tree and stone.
3c 4C 23
27
וּבַגּוֹיִ֤ם הָהֵם֙ לֹ֣א תַרְגִּ֔יעַ וְלֹא־יִהְיֶ֥ה מָנ֖וֹחַ לְכַף־רַגְלֶ֑ךָ
וְנָתַן֩ יְהוָ֨ה לְךָ֥ שָׁם֙ לֵ֣ב רַגָּ֔ז וְכִלְי֥וֹן עֵינַ֖יִם וְדַֽאֲב֥וֹן נָֽפֶשׁ
65 And among those nations you will not find ease and there will be no rest for the sole of your foot.
And Yahweh will give you there, a shuddering heart, and faint eyes, and a drooping integrity.
3e 4C 22
22
וְהָי֣וּ חַיֶּ֔יךָ תְּלֻאִ֥ים לְךָ֖ מִנֶּ֑גֶד
וּפָֽחַדְתָּ֙ לַ֣יְלָה וְיוֹמָ֔ם וְלֹ֥א תַאֲמִ֖ין בְּחַיֶּֽיךָ
66 And your lives will become uncertain before you,
and you will dread night and day, so you will not be able to depend on your lives.
3e 4B 14
18
בַּבֹּ֤קֶר תֹּאמַר֙ מִֽי־יִתֵּ֣ן עֶ֔רֶב וּבָעֶ֥רֶב תֹּאמַ֖ר מִֽי־יִתֵּ֣ן בֹּ֑קֶר
מִפַּ֤חַד לְבָֽבְךָ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר תִּפְחָ֔ד וּמִמַּרְאֵ֥ה עֵינֶ֖יךָ אֲשֶׁ֥ר תִּרְאֶֽה
67 In the morning you will say, Who gives evening, and in the evening, you will say, Who gives morning,
from the dread of your heart that you dread and from what appears in your eyes that you will see.
3e 4C 19
21
וֶֽהֱשִֽׁיבְךָ֨‬ יְהוָ֥ה ׀ מִצְרַיִם֮ בָּאֳנִיּוֹת֒ בַּדֶּ֙רֶךְ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר אָמַ֣רְתִּֽי לְךָ֔ לֹא־תֹסִ֥יף ע֖וֹד לִרְאֹתָ֑הּ
וְהִתְמַכַּרְתֶּ֨ם שָׁ֧ם לְאֹיְבֶ֛יךָ לַעֲבָדִ֥ים וְלִשְׁפָח֖וֹת וְאֵ֥ין קֹנֶֽה ס
68 And Yahweh will have you return to Egypt by ship in the way that I said to you, You will no longer again see it.
And you will be on sale there to your enemies as servants and as handmaidens and there is no one to purchase. S
3c 4B 28
23
אֵלֶּה֩ דִבְרֵ֨י הַבְּרִ֜ית אֲ‍ֽשֶׁר־צִוָּ֧ה יְהוָ֣ה אֶת־מֹשֶׁ֗ה לִכְרֹ֛ת אֶת־בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל בְּאֶ֣רֶץ מוֹאָ֑ב
מִלְּבַ֣ד הַבְּרִ֔ית אֲשֶׁר־כָּרַ֥ת אִתָּ֖ם בְּחֹרֵֽב פ
69 These are the words of the covenant which Yahweh commanded Moses to cut with the children of Israel in the land of Moab,
besides the covenant which he cut with them in Horeb. P
