    "This is what will happen: Just as the LORD delighted to do good for you and make you numerous, he will take delight in destroying [Hebrew – haavid] and decimating [Hebrew – hashmid] you. You will be uprooted from the land you are about to possess."
    Deuteronomy 28:63 (NET)

    Each versions follows the rules of their translation committee.
    Careful crafting bring different results but the same general meaning.

    I'm impressed with the alliteration of the New English Translation.

    I'm not sure where you are going with the opening post.

    Compare Ezekiel 18:32 and 33:11.

    Yes. I have no issues with the various renderings. I was just emphsizing that God's love is not abiding on everyone equally as some sentimentally believe.

    Completed. Fulfilled. Done already.

    I'm not sure where you are going with the referenced passages. You think God's redeemed cannot do wickedly? Or won't be recompensed for doing wickedly?
