 17:14
17:14 The uncircumcised male whose foreskin has not been circumcised, shall have his soul cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.'
Ve'arel zachar asher lo-yimol et-besar orlato venichretah hanefesh hahi me'ameyha et-beriti hefar.



Commentary:

cut off from his people
  This denotes being cut off from one's spiritual source. It also denotes premature death and childlessness (see Genesis 9:11).
