denounced by God against the serpent (Gen. 3:14), and against
Cain (4:11). These divine maledictions carried their effect with
them. Prophetical curses were sometimes pronounced by holy men

was expected, God would by this cursing at once interpose and
destroy Job, and so put an end to his sufferings.
