Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall make you none idoles nor grauen image, neither reare you vp any pillar, neither shal ye set any image of stone in your land to bow downe to it: for I am the Lord your God.
Leviticus 26:2 Ye shall keepe my Sabbaths, and reuerence my Sanctuarie: I am the Lorde.
A blessing to them that keep the Commandments.
Leviticus 26:3 If ye walke in mine ordinances, and keepe my commandements, and doe them, Leviticus 26:4 I will then sende you raine in due season, and the land shal yelde her increase, and the trees of the fielde shall giue her fruite. Leviticus 26:5 And your threshing shall reache vnto the vintage, and the vintage shall reache vnto sowing time, and you shall eate your bread in plenteousnesse, and dwell in your land safely. Leviticus 26:6 And I will sende peace in the land, and ye shall sleepe and none shal make you afraid: also I will rid euill beastes out of the lande, and the sworde shall not go through your lande. Leviticus 26:7 Also ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you vpon the sworde. Leviticus 26:8 And fiue of you shall chase an hundreth, and an hundreth of you shall put ten thousande to flight, and your enemies shall fall before you vpon the sworde. Leviticus 26:9 For I will haue respect vnto you, and make you encrease, and multiplie you, and establish my couenant with you. Leviticus 26:10 Ye shall eate also olde store, and cary out olde because of the newe. Leviticus 26:11 And I will set my Tabernacle among you, and my soule shall not lothe you. Leviticus 26:12 Also I will walke among you, and I wil be your God, and ye shalbe my people. Leviticus 26:13 I am the Lorde your God which haue brought you out of the lande of Egypt, that yee should not be their bondmen, & I haue broken ye bonds of your yoke, & made you goe vpright.
A curse to those that break them.
Leviticus 26:14 But if ye will not obey me, nor do all these commandements, Leviticus 26:15 And if ye shall despise mine ordinances, either if your soule abhorre my lawes, so that yee will not do all my commandements, but breake my couenant, Leviticus 26:16 Then wil I also do this vnto you, I wil appoint ouer you fearefulnes, a consumption, and the burning ague to consume the eyes, and make the heart heauie, and you shall sowe your seede in vaine: for your enemies shall eate it: Leviticus 26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shal fal before your enemies, & they that hate you, shall raigne ouer you, and yee shall flee when none pursueth you. Leviticus 26:18 And if ye wil not for these things obey me, then wil I punish you seuen times more, according to your sinnes, Leviticus 26:19 And I wil 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 shalbe spent in vaine: neither shall your lande giue her increase, neither shall the trees of the land giue their fruite.
Leviticus 26:21 And if ye walke stubburnly against me, and will not obey mee, I will then bring seuen times mo plagues vpon you, according to your sinnes. Leviticus 26:22 I will also sende wilde beastes vpon you, which shall spoyle you, and destroy your cattell, & make you fewe in number: so your hye waies shalbe desolate. Leviticus 26:23 Yet if by these ye will not be reformed by me, but walke stubburnly against me, Leviticus 26:24 Then wil I also walke stubburnly against you, and I will smite you yet seuen times for your sinnes: Leviticus 26:25 And I wil send a sword vpon you, that shal auenge the quarel of my couenant: and when ye are gathered in your cities, I wil send the pestilence among you, and ye shall be deliuered into the hand of the enemie. Leviticus 26:26 When I shall breake the staffe of your bread, then ten women shal bake your breade in one ouen, & they shal deliuer your bread againe by weight, and ye shall eate, but not be satisfied. Leviticus 26:27 Yet if ye will not for this obey mee, but walke against me stubburnly, Leviticus 26:28 Then will I walke stubburnly in mine anger against you, and I will also chastice you seuen times more according to your sinnes. Leviticus 26:29 And ye shall eate ye flesh of your sonnes, & the flesh of your daughters shall ye deuoure. Leviticus 26:30 I will also destroy your hye places, & cut away your images, and cast your carkeises vpon the bodies of your idoles, and my soule shall abhorre you. Leviticus 26:31 And I will make your cities desolate, and bring your Sanctuarie vnto nought, and will not smell the sauour of your sweete odours. Leviticus 26:32 I will also bring the land vnto a wildernes, and your enemies, which dwell therein, shalbe astonished thereat. Leviticus 26:33 Also I wil scatter you among the heathen, and will drawe out a sworde after you, & your land shalbe waste, & your cities shalbe desolate. Leviticus 26:34 Then shall the land inioy her Sabbaths, as long as it lieth voide, and yee shalbe in your enemies land: then shall the land rest, and enioy her Sabbaths. Leviticus 26:35 All the dayes that it lieth voide, it shal rest, because it did not rest in your Sabbaths, when ye dwelt vpon it. Leviticus 26:36 And vpon them that are left of you, I will send euen a faintnes into their hearts in ye land of their enemies, & the sounde of a leafeshaken shal chase them, and they shall flee as fleeing from a sword, and they shall fall, no man pursuing them. Leviticus 26:37 They shall fall also one vpon another, as before a sword, though none pursue them, and ye shall not be able to stand before your enemies: Leviticus 26:38 And ye shall perish among the heathen, & the land of your enemies shall eate you vp. Leviticus 26:39 And they that are left of you, shall pine away for their iniquitie, in your enemies landes, and for the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them also.
God promiseth to remember them that repent.
Leviticus 26:40 Then they shall confesse their iniquitie, & the wickednes of their fathers for their trespasse, which they haue trespassed against mee, and also because they haue walked stubburnly against me. Leviticus 26:41 Therefore I wil walke stubburnly against them, and bring them into the land of their enemies: so then their vncircumcised hearts shalbe humbled, and then they shalt willingly beare the punishment of their iniquitie. Leviticus 26:42 Then I will remember my couenant with Iaakob, and my couenant also with Izhak, and also my couenant with Abraham will I remember, and will remember the land. Leviticus 26:43 The land also in the meane season shalbe left of them, & shall enioye her Sabbaths while she lieth waste without them, but they shall willingly suffer the punishment of their iniquitie, because they despised my lawes, and because their soule abhorred mine ordinances. Leviticus 26:44 Yet notwithstanding this, when they shalbe in the lande of their enemies, I wil not cast them away, neither will I abhorre them, to destroy them vtterly, nor to breake my couenant with them: for I am the Lord their God: Leviticus 26:45 But I will remember for them the couenant of olde when I brought them out of ye land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen that I might be their God: I am the Lorde. Leviticus 26:46 These are the ordinances, and the iudgements, and the lawes, which the Lorde made betweene him, and the children of Israel in mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses.
