Deuteronomist theology is a theological version of blaming the victim for their suffering: whatever your problems in life, you must deserve them. The reverse is also used: if you're prosperous and doing well, it must be because you are doing something right. The theological part comes when God is described as the ultimate source of your suffering or prosperity. Suffering means you're cursed by God for your disobedience; prosperity means you're blessed by God for your obedience.
