Rashi in the beginning of pashas Netzavim writes, that there are 49 curses in parshas Bechukosai - ["besides the forty-nine that are contained in Torath-Cohanim"] . When you go through the Rashi in Parshas Bechukosai, you find that he only enumerates 5 sets of 7, [they are: set 1 = pesukim 16-17, set 2 = 18-20, set 3 = 21-22, set 4 = 23-25, set 5 = 27-32] which equal 35? What and where are the missing curses?

[This question is different than What are the 49 curses and the 98 curses?, since I am only looking for the last 14 curses in Bechukosai.]

    I don't know if this is significant, but when we read them, we've usually counted around 35/49 days – Heshy May 15 '20 at 19:47
  • Even though there are curses after pasuk 32, the most I came up with is 12 not 14. [Pasuk 33 = 3, 36 =3, 37 = 3, 38 = 2, 39 = 1, and 41 = 1] – פרי זהב May 17 '20 at 5:01
