There is a relationship between God, man and the land. When men are faithful to the law of God there are blessings. When they are faithless, there are curses. They are cursed in a variety of ways, in their health, in their work, through the land and the weather. There is thus according to scripture an essential relationship between man and the earth, a symbiosis which rests on man’s relationship to God.
