Leviticus 26:1 Yee shall make you no Idoles nor grauen Image, neither reare you vp a standing image, neither shall yee set vp any Image of stone in your land, to bow downe vnto it: For I [am] the LORD your God.
Leviticus 26:2 Ye shal keepe my Sabbaths, and reuerence my Sanctuary: I [am] the LORD.
A blessing to them that keep the Commandments.
Leviticus 26:3 If ye walke in my Statutes, and keepe my Commandements, and doe them; Leviticus 26:4 Then I will giue you raine in due season, and the land shall yeeld her increase, and the trees of the field shall yeeld their fruit. Leviticus 26:5 And your threshing shall reach vnto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach vnto the sowing time: and yee shal eat your bread to the full, and dwel in your land safely. Leviticus 26:6 And I wil giue peace in the land, and ye shall lye downe, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid euill beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword goe through your land. Leviticus 26:7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. Leviticus 26:8 And fiue of you shal chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. Leviticus 26:9 For I wil haue respect vnto you, and make you fruitfull, and multiply you, & establish my couenant with you. Leviticus 26:10 And yee shall eate old store, and bring forth the old, because of the new. Leviticus 26:11 And I will set my Tabernacle amongst you: and my soule shall not abhorre you. Leviticus 26:12 And I will walke among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. Leviticus 26:13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that yee should not be their bondmen, & I haue broken the bandes of your yoke, and made you go vpright.
A curse to those that break them.
Leviticus 26:14 But if ye will not hearken vnto me, and will not doe all these Commandements: Leviticus 26:15 And if ye shall despise my Statutes, or if your soule abhorre my Iudgements, so that ye wil not doe all my Commandements, [but] that yee breake my Couenant: Leviticus 26:16 I also will doe this vnto you, I will euen appoint ouer you terrour, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seede in vaine, for your enemies shall eate it. Leviticus 26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slaine before your enemies: they that hate you shall reigne ouer you, and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. Leviticus 26:18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken vnto me, then I will punish you seuen times more for your sinnes. Leviticus 26:19 And I will breake the pride of your power, and I will make your heauen as yron, and your earth as brasse: Leviticus 26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vaine: for your land shall not yeeld her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yeeld their fruits.
Leviticus 26:21 And if ye walke contrary vnto me, and will not hearken vnto mee, I will bring seuen times moe plagues vpon you, according to your sinnes. Leviticus 26:22 I will also send wilde beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattell, and make you few in number, and your [high] wayes shall be desolate. Leviticus 26:23 And if ye will not be reformed by these things, but will walke contrary vnto me: Leviticus 26:24 Then will I also walke contrary vnto you, and will punish you yet seuen times for your sinnes. Leviticus 26:25 And I will bring a sword vpon you, that shall auenge the quarell of [my] couenant: and when yee are gathered together within your cities, I wil send the pestilence among you, and ye shalbe deliuered into the hand of the enemie. Leviticus 26:26 And when I haue broken the staffe of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one ouen, and they shall deliuer you your bread againe by weight: and ye shall eate, and not bee satisfied. Leviticus 26:27 And if ye wil not for all this hearken vnto me, but walke contrary vnto mee, Leviticus 26:28 Then I wil walke contrary vnto you also in fury, and I, euen I will chastise you seuen times for your sinnes. Leviticus 26:29 And ye shal eate the flesh of your sonnes, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eate. Leviticus 26:30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut downe your images, and cast your carkeises vpon the carkeises of your idoles, and my soule shall abhorre you. Leviticus 26:31 And I wil make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries vnto desolation, and I will not smell the sauour of your sweet odours. Leviticus 26:32 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwel therein, shall be astonished at it. Leviticus 26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. Leviticus 26:34 Then shall the lande enioy her Sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and yee be in your enemies land, euen then shall the land rest, and enioy her Sabbaths. Leviticus 26:35 As long as it lieth desolate, it shall rest: because it did not rest in your Sabbaths, when ye dwelt vpon it. Leviticus 26:36 And vpon them that are left aliue of you, I will send a faintnesse into their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a shaken leafe shall chase them, and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword: and they shall fall, when none pursueth. Leviticus 26:37 And they shall fall one vpon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and yee shall haue no power to stand before your enemies. Leviticus 26:38 And yee shall perish among the Heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eate you vp. Leviticus 26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquitie in your enemies lands, and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
God promiseth to remember them that repent.
Leviticus 26:40 If they shall confesse the iniquitie of their fathers, with their trespasse which they trespassed against me, and that also they haue walked contrary vnto me: Leviticus 26:41 And [that] I also haue walked contrary vnto them, and haue brought them into the land of their enemies: if then their vncircumcised hearts bee humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquitie: Leviticus 26:42 Then will I remember my couenant with Iacob, and also my couenant with Isaac, and also my couenant with Abraham will I remember, and I will remember the land. Leviticus 26:43 The land also shalbe left of them, and shall enioy her Sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquitie: because, euen because they despised my Iudgements, and because their soule abhorred my Statutes Leviticus 26:44 And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhorre them, to destroy them vtterly, and to breake my couenant with them: for I am the LORD their God. Leviticus 26:45 But I wil for their sakes remember the couenant of their Ancestours, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt, in the sight of the Heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD. Leviticus 26:46 These are the Statutes, and Iudgements, and Lawes which the LORD made betweene him and the children of Israel, in mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses.
