“and flee before you seven ways​.” The opposite of this will happen if Israel disobeys God (Deut. 28:25).

Deu 28:24

“Yahweh will make the rain of your land powder and dust​.” One of the great lessons of the Bible is that the behavior of people affects the land that they live on. This lesson is throughout the Old Testament (cp. Deut. 11:13-17; 28:1, 12, 15, 22-25, 38-40; Lev. 18:24-25; Ps. 107:33-34; Jer. 3:2-3; 12:4; 23:10; Amos 4:6-10). (See commentary on Lev. 18:25).

Deu 28:25

“and will flee seven ways before them​.” This is the opposite of what God said in Deuteronomy 28:7. We see this played out many times in the Bible. When the people of God obeyed God, there were miraculous victories, but when they disobeyed there were stunning defeats (see commentary on Josh. 11:8).

Deu 28:54

“his eye will be evil.” The “evil eye” is a Semitic idiom for being greedy and stingy. Deuteronomy 28 is revealing how the people of Israel will be cursed if they do not keep God’s Law. There will be such shortages that even the man who is tender among the Israelites will have an evil eye towards his family, that is, be stingy and selfish when it comes to even them. Biblically, an evil eye is greedy or stingy; while a “good eye,” or a “single eye,” is generous. This verse shows us that terrible times can cause people to turn against their families. [For more on idioms involving the good eye, see commentary on Prov. 22:9. For more on the idiom of the evil eye, see commentary on Prov. 28:22].
