But if you will not listen to the voice of Adonai your God, to take care to do all His laws and statutes that I am commanding you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you. (TLV) Deuteronomy 28:15
Nosh: “Overtake” is a very important and encouraging word in this verse. Even in disciplining us, He is merciful and slow to anger. God’s just discipline is not immediately dispensed but lags behind our offenses leaving time for our repentance to cancel or lessen it. What a merciful and loving God we serve!
