Cursed is…

So, after writing my last post on Blessed is the Man, I thought I might go to the opposite side of the scale.  There might not be as many verses to chose from as there are when you look for blessings, but these still contain potent words of what we are not to do.  So, a sampling of the verses I found:

  • Leviticus 20:9
    ‘For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him.
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:15
    Cursed is the one who makes a carved or molded image, an abomination to the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret.’ “And all the people shall answer and say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:16
    Cursed is the one who treats his father or his mother with contempt.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:17
    Cursed is the one who moves his neighbor’s landmark.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:18
    Cursed is the one who makes the blind to wander off the road.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:19
    Cursed is the one who perverts the justice due the stranger, the fatherless, and widow.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:21
    Cursed is the one who lies with any kind of animal.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:24
    Cursed is the one who attacks his neighbor secretly.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Deuteronomy 27:25
    Cursed is the one who takes a bribe to slay an innocent person.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
     
  • Jeremiah 17:5
