Deuteronomy 28 51 He Shall Eat the Fruit of Thy Cattle

Deuteronomy 28 51

Verse Fifty-One:

And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

Whenever the Israelites would plant their crops, the Midianites, Amalekites, and other people of the east would come up and invade them, encamping against them as far as Gaza and destroying the produce of the land.

They left Israel with no sustenance, neither sheep nor oxen nor donkeys. Then all the Midianites, Amalekites, and other people of the east gathered together, crossed over the Jordan, and camped in the Valley of Jezreel.

Your land is desolate; your cities are burned with fire. Foreigners devour your fields before you–a desolation demolished by strangers. My transgressions are bound into a yoke, knit together by His hand; they are draped over my neck, and the Lord has broken my strength.

Until the Cities Lie Ruined and Without Inhabitant

He has delivered me into the hands of those I cannot withstand. And the Daughter of Zion is abandoned like a shelter in a vineyard, like a shack in a cucumber field, as a city besieged. For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen because they spoke and acted against the LORD, defying His glorious presence.

Then I asked: “How long, O Lord?” And He replied: “Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant until the houses are left unoccupied and the land is desolate and ravaged until the LORD has driven men far away and the land is utterly forsaken.
