CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That confirmeth not all the words of this law - The word כל col, All, is not found in any printed copy of the Hebrew text; but the Samaritan preserves it, and so do six MSS. in the collections of Kennicott and De Rossi, besides several copies of the Chaldee Targum. The Septuagint also, and St. Paul in his quotation of this place, Galatians 3:10. St. Jerome says that the Jews suppressed the word, that it might not appear that they were bound to fulfill All the precepts in the law of Moses.
1. Dr. Kennicott, who contends that it was the Decalogue that was written on the stones mentioned in this chapter, says, "If we examine these twelve curses, they will appear to contain a strong enforcement of the ten commands; and it is highly probable that the curses were here proclaimed principally to secure obedience to the commandments, as will be made more clear by the table: -
The first, second, third, and fourth Commandments
Galatians 3:15 - Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination to the Lord, etc.
The fifth Commandment
Galatians 3:16 - Cursed be he that setteth light by his father or his mother.
The sixth Commandment
Galatians 3:25 - Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.
Galatians 3:24 - Cursed be he that smiteth his neighbor secretly.
Galatians 3:18 - Cursed be he that maketh the blind to wander out of the way.
The seventh Commandment
Galatians 3:20 - Cursed be he that lieth with his father's wife.
Galatians 3:21 - Cursed be he that lieth with any beast.
Galatians 3:22 - Cursed be he that lieth with his sister.

'Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48. Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies ... in want of all things: and He shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until He have destroyed thee.'--DEUT. xxviii. 47, 48 The history of Israel is a picture on the large scale of what befalls every man. A service--we are all born to obedience, to depend on and follow some person or thing. There is only a choice of services; and …

He said, "If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."
If you listen carefully to what he says and do all that I say, I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you.
Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you,
"'If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands,
If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the LORD your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your ancestors.
