1When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the LORD your God disperses you among the nations,1“And when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the LORD your God has driven you,1"So it shall be when all of these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind in all nations where the LORD your God has banished you,1And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,1When all these things happen to you--the blessings and curses I have set before you--and you come to your senses while you are in all the nations where the LORD your God has driven you,
2and when you and your children return to the LORD your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today,2and return to the LORD your God, you and your children, and obey his voice in all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your soul,2and you return to the LORD your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul according to all that I command you today, you and your sons,2And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;2and you and your children return to the LORD your God and obey Him with all your heart and all your soul by doing everything I am giving you today,

4Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the LORD your God will gather you and bring you back.4If your outcasts are in the uttermost parts of heaven, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there he will take you.4"If your outcasts are at the ends of the earth, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you back.4If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:4Even if your exiles are at the ends of the earth, He will gather you and bring you back from there.
