Words alphabetically surrounding "CURSE" in English
In the following list of word definitions around "curse" in the English dictionary apply to the concept of "curse."
"Curry" has to do with deception, which is one of the results of falling under a curse. "Behold, I will send them strong delusion that they will believe a lie." (Isaiah 66; II Thes. 2.)
"Cursory" refers to glossing over something that deserves keen attention, which is a primary causative factor bringing a curse.
"Curry" and "cursory" are therefore cause and effect words surrounding the idea of a "curse." When we gloss over something of importance, we end up in the curse of deception, for we lack the deeper insight we might have gained had we paid attention.
When an entire people do this, the entire group falls under deception. Rather than hearkening to the inspired wisdom of men and women of God who come among them, they reject this greater light and knowledge and cast them out from among them. But the end result is that they cut themselves off from the presence of God and become as salt that has lost its savor and is good for nothing but to be cast out and trodden under feet (see def. of "cajole").
