Walton on Blessing and Curse

He writes,
John Walton has an interesting post on the meaning of blessing and curse in the Hebrew Scriptures."Blessing and curse are common terms in Genesis from the initial blessing in Genesis 1 to the curses of Genesis 3, 4 and 9, and then to the juxtaposition of curse and blessing in Genesis 12:1-3. It is therefore important for us to know the nuances of each one. It is especially intriguing that in Genesis 12:3, there are two different Hebrew terms for curse."
