Curse of Illegitimacy
"One of illegitimate birth shall not enter
the assembly of the LORD; even to the
tenth generation none of his
descendants shall enter the assembly
of the LORD.
"But it shall come to pass, if you do not
obey the voice of the LORD your God, to
observe carefully all His commandments
and His statutes which I command you
today, that all these curses will come upon
you and overtake you:

of Israel:"Cursed is the

nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

Weaver's father, Ward Weaver III, was convicted of aggravated
murder in 2004, two years after the bodies of Ashley Pond and

It was Francis Weaver, then 19, who finally ended the mystery by
calling emergency dispatchers to report that his girlfriend accused
Ward Weaver of raping her, and his father had privately admitted to
killing the girls.
In the early 1980s, Francis Weaver's grandfather, Ward Weaver Jr.,
was convicted of killing a man whose car had broken down and of
kidnapping, raping and murdering the man's girlfriend, 23-year-old
Barbara Levoy. Her body was found buried beneath a deck at his
home in Oroville, Calif.

"And against your children's children
I will bring charges.
Curse of Eli
1 Sam 3:12-14
12 In that day I will perform against Eli all that
I have spoken concerning his house, from
beginning to end. 13 For I have told him that I
will judge his house forever for the iniquity
which he knows, because his sons made
themselves vile, and he did not restrain them.
14 And therefore I have sworn to the house of
Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be
atoned for by sacrifice or offering forever."
31 The time is coming when I will cut short your
strength and the strength of your father's house, so
that there will not be an old man in your family
line 32 and you will see distress in my dwelling.
Although good will be done to Israel, in your
family line there will never be an old man. 33
Every one of you that I do not cut off from my
altar will be spared only to blind your eyes with
tears and to grieve your heart, and all your
descendants will die in the prime of life.
Curse of Gehazi
2 Kings 5:27
“Naaman’s Leprosy will cling to
you and your descendants
forever.” Then Gehazi went
from Elisha’s presence and he
was leprous, as white as snow.
2 Kings 7:3,8,9
3 Now there were four men with leprosy at
the entrance of the city gate. They said to
each other, "Why stay here until we die? 4
If we say, 'We'll go into the city'-the famine
is there, and we will die. And if we stay
here, we will die. So let’s go over to the
camp of the Arameans …….and
surrender. If they spare us, we live; if they
kill us, then we die."
2 Kings 7:8-9
8 The men who had leprosy reached the edge of the
camp and entered one of the tents. They ate and drank,
and carried away silver, gold and clothes, and went off
and hid them. They returned and entered another tent
and took some things from it and hid them also.
9 Then they said to each other, "We're not doing right.
This is a day of good news and we are keeping it to
ourselves. If we wait until daylight, punishment will

4 The king was talking to Gehazi, the servant of the man of
God, and had said, "Tell me about all the great things
Elisha has done." 5 Just as Gehazi was telling the king how
Elisha had restored the dead to life, the woman whose son
Elisha had brought back to life came to beg the king for her
house and land.
Gehazi said, "This is the woman, my lord the king, and this
is her son whom Elisha restored to life." 6 The king asked
the woman about it, and she told him.

at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he

blood be on us and on our children."

after they had made a covenant with them,

2 Sam 21:1-2
Now there was a famine in the days of David for
three years, year after year; and David inquired of
the LORD. And the LORD answered, "It is
because of Saul and his bloodthirsty house,
because he killed the Gibeonites." 2 So the king
called the Gibeonites and spoke to them. Now the
Gibeonites were not of the children of Israel, but of
the remnant of the Amorites; the children of
Israel had sworn protection to them, but Saul
had sought to kill them in his zeal for the children
of Israel and Judah.
3 Therefore David said to the Gibeonites,
"What shall I do for you? And with what
shall I make atonement, that you may bless
the inheritance of the LORD?"
4 And the Gibeonites said to him, "We
will have no silver or gold from Saul or
from his house, nor shall you kill any man
in Israel for us."
So he said, "Whatever you say, I will do for you."
5 Then they answered the king, "As for the man
who consumed us and plotted against us, that we
should be destroyed from remaining in any of the
territories of Israel, 6 let seven men of his
descendants be delivered to us, and we will hang
them before the LORD in Gibeah of Saul, whom
the LORD chose."And the king said, "I will give
