Amen.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.
