At the end of Leviticus we read a list of blessings and curses. Things that the nation of Israel can expect to occur in response to obedience or disobedience to God’s Instruction. The blessings point us backward to something that we have already read in Scripture, and the curses point forward to something that will occur in Scripture. And not a single one of these blessings and curses are for the individual. They are a response to the community at large. And they give a picture of things yet to come.
