The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower.

And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your descendants forever. ‘Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.’” Deuteronomy 28:45-49 NKJV.
