And Yahweh will single him out for adversity out of all the tribes of Israel in keeping with all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law. Bible see other translations

“the curses of the covenant.” In the Hebrew text, the word “curse” is singular, but it is a collective singular where all the curses of the covenant are considered to be one giant curse and not a lot of different and unconnected curses. When a person breaks one part of the Law he is considered to have broken the whole Law.
