Why should anyone curse God
In contrast to the blessing, the curse is a disastrous word that was considered to have an unlimited effect. The curse is intended as a curse to diminish the strength, life and well-being of the cursed. It not only extends to the individual, but also falls to his property and his family. It is a means of defense against attacks that cannot be defended against in any other way.
The curse had a permanent place in the everyday life of the Israelites. It served the weak as a defense against injustice and arbitrariness (Proverbs 11:26) and as a threat of punishment for non-compliance with the legal system (Deuteronomy 27: 15-26). A curse can - as even King David had to experience - be caused by culpable acts and accompanied by symbolic acts (2 Samuel 16: 5-12). He can fall back on the cursing person himself if he stands against God's blessing (Genesis 27:29), and can be lifted by a blessing (Judges 17.2).
The written curse word played an important role in special cases of priestly jurisprudence (Numbers 5: 11-31).
The use of curses was not limited to interpersonal use: For example, the seer Balaam was commissioned by the Moabite king Balak to curse the entire people of Israel (Numbers 22-24). But even in such cases a curse was not effective without the will of God, because the God of Israel is the Lord of the curse: Balaam knows that he cannot curse anyone who is not cursed by God (Numbers 23: 8) . And so the curses of Balaam turned into a blessing from Israel.
In the New Testament a different accent is set: A curse should be answered with a blessing and thereby overcome. Christians are able to do this because Christ himself redeemed them from the curse that humans are under for failing to keep the law (Galatians 3:13).
