Turning Curses into Blessings - Deuteronomy 23

He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy  member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the  LORD. Deuteronomy 23:1 

Deuteronomy 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the  congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation  shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.  

Deuteronomy 23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the  congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation  shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for  ever: 

Deuteronomy 23:4 Because they met you not with bread and with  water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and  because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of  Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee. 

Deuteronomy 23:5 Nevertheless  the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the  LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee,  because the LORD thy God loved thee. 

Deuteronomy 23:6 Thou shalt  not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.  

Deuteronomy 23:7 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy  brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou  wast a stranger in his land. 

Deuteronomy 23:8 The children that are  begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the  LORD in their third generation.  

Deuteronomy 23:9 When the host goeth forth against thine enemies,  then keep thee from every wicked thing.  

Deuteronomy 23:10 If there be among you any man, that is not clean  by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then  shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within  the camp: 

Deuteronomy 23:11 But it shall be, when evening cometh on,  he shall wash himself with water: and when the sun is  down, he shall come into the camp again.  

Deuteronomy 23:12 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp,  whither thou shalt go forth abroad: 

Deuteronomy 23:13 And thou shalt  have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou  wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt  turn back and cover that which cometh from thee: 

Deuteronomy 23:14  For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to  deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee;  therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean  thing in thee, and turn away from thee.   

Deuteronomy 23:15 Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant  which is escaped from his master unto thee: 

Deuteronomy 23:16 He  shall dwell with thee, even among you, in that place which  he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it liketh him best:  thou shalt not oppress him.  

Deuteronomy 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of  Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. 

Deuteronomy 23:18 Thou  shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into  the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both  these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.  

Deuteronomy 23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother;  usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is  lent upon usury: 

Deuteronomy 23:20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend  upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon  usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that  thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to  possess it.  

Deuteronomy 23:21 When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy  God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God  will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.  

Deuteronomy 23:22 But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in  thee. 

Deuteronomy 23:23 That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt  keep and perform; even a freewill offering, according as  thou hast vowed unto the LORD thy God, which thou hast  promised with thy mouth.  

Deuteronomy 23:24 When thou comest into thy neighbour’s vineyard,  then thou mayest eat grapes thy fill at thine own pleasure; but thou shalt not put any in thy vessel. 

Deuteronomy 23:25 When  thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbour, then  thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand; but thou shalt  not move a sickle unto thy neighbour’s standing corn.
