And all these blessings will come upon you and overtake you when you heed the voice of the LORD your God. Sometimes we chase an opportunity, believe it is a great blessing and then it turns out to be something very different. Therefore we are told that blessings will come upon you and overtake you, as Onkelos translates– they will cling to us – and we will not need to cling to them. Similarly, when King David prayed Let but goodness and kindness pursue me all the days of my life…he was admitting that sometimes it is difficult to know what exactly we should be doing. Therefore he asked God that goodness and kindness should pursue him all the days of his life.
