Properly speaking, is an imprecation implied or expressed that evil may come upon us or upon others. It is usually a sin against charity. When directed against a person or a thing, like the weather, it has the guilt of blasphemy. In Scripture, God pronounces a curse on the serpent (Genesis 3); Noe curses Chanaan (Genesis 9); in Leviticus and Deuteronomy there are curses against the lawless. Our Lord cursed the barren fig-tree, the scribes and Pharisees.
