To each of the curses the people were to say Amen, as well as
to the blessings; to denote a profession of their faith in the
truth of them, that they were the real declarations of the
wrath of God; and an acknowledgement of the equity of these
curses. It was such an imprecation upon themselves, as
strongly obliged them to have nothing to do with those evil
practices on which the curse is entailed. We read of those
who entered a curse to walk in God's law. Ne 10:29. All the
people, by saying this Amen, became bound one for another,
that they would observe God's laws, by which every man was
obliged, as far as he could, to prevent his neighbour from
breaking these laws, and to reprove those that had offended,
lest they should bear sin and the curse for them.
