Leviticus 26:1 I am the Lorde your God. Ye shal make you no Idolles nor grauen image, neyther reare you vp anye piller, neyther ye shall sette vppe anye image of stone in your Lande to bowe youre selues therto: for I am the Lorde youre God:
Leviticus 26:2 kepe my Sabothes & feare my sanctuary: for I am the Lorde.
A blessing to them that keep the Commandments.
Leviticus 26:3 If ye shall walke in myne ordinaunces & kepe my commaundementes & do them, Leviticus 26:4 then I wyll send you reyne in the ryght season & youre lande shall yelde hyr encrease and the trees of the fyeld shal gyue thyr fruite. Leviticus 26:5 And the threshing shal reach vnto wyne heruest, & the wyne heruest shall reach vnto sowyng tyme, and ye shall eate youre breade in plentuousnes, and shal dwell in your lande peasably. Leviticus 26:6 And I wyl sende peace in youre lande that ye shall slepe, and no manne shal make you a frayde. And I wyll rydde euyll beastes oute of youre Lande, and there shall no swerde goo thorowe out your lande. Leviticus 26:7 And ye shal chasse youre enemyes, & they shall fall before you vpon the swerd. Leviticus 26:8 And fyue of you shal chasse an hundred, & an hundred of you shall put .x. thousand to flyghte, and your enemies shall fall before you vpon the swerde. Leviticus 26:9 And I wyl turne vnto you and encrease you & multyply you, and set vp my testament wyth you. Leviticus 26:10 And ye shall eate olde store, and cast out the olde for plentuousnes of the newe. Leviticus 26:11 I wyll make my dwellynge place amonge you, and my Soule shall not loth you. Leviticus 26:12 And I wyll walke amonge you and wyll be your God, and ye shalbe mi people. Leviticus 26:13 For I am the Lord your God, whyche broughte you out of the land of the Egiptians, that ye should not be theyr bondemen, and I brake the bowes of your yockes, and made you go vpryght.
A curse to those that break them.
Leviticus 26:14 But and if ye will not herken vnto me, nor wyll do all these my commaundementes, Leviticus 26:15 or if ye shal despise myne ordinaunces either if youre Soule refuse my lawes, so that ye wyl not do al my commaundementes, but shal breake myne appoyntmente: Leviticus 26:16 then I wyll do this agayne vnto you: I wyl viset you with vexacions, swellinge & feuers, þt shall make your eyes dasel, & wt sorowes of herte. And ye shall sowe your seede in vayne, for youre enemyes shall eate it. Leviticus 26:17 And I wyll sette my face agaynst you & ye shall fal before youre enemyes, & they that hate you shall raygne ouer you, and ye shall flee when no man foloweth you. Leviticus 26:18 And if ye wyl not yet for all thys herken vnto me, then wil I punyshe you seuen times more for youre synnes, Leviticus 26:19 and wyll breake the pride of your strength. For I wyll make the heauen ouer you as harde as yron, & youre lande as harde as brasse. Leviticus 26:20 And so youre labour shall be spent in vayne. For your land shal not gyue hyr encrease, neyther the trees of the land shal gyue their fruites.
Leviticus 26:21 And if ye walke contrarye vnto me and wyll not herken vnto me, I wyll brynge seuen tymes mo plages vpon you accordyng to your synnes. Leviticus 26:22 I wyl send in wyld beastes vpon you, whyche shall robbe you of your chyldren & destroy your cattell, & make you so fewe in numbre that your hye wayes shal grow vnto a wyldernes. Leviticus 26:23 And if ye wyll not be learned yet for all thys but shall walke contrary vnto me, Leviticus 26:24 then wyll I also walke contrarye vnto you and wyll punyshe you yet seuen times for your synnes. Leviticus 26:25 I wyl send a swerd vpon you, that shall auenge my testament wyth you. And when ye are fledde vnto your cityes, I wyll sende the pestilence amonge you, ye shal be deliuered into the handes of your enemies. Leviticus 26:26 And when I haue broken the staffe of your bread: that .x. wyues shall bake your breade in one ouen and men shall deliuer you youre bread agayne by wayght, then shall ye eate and not be satisfied. Leviticus 26:27 And if ye wyll not yet for all thys herken vnto me, but shal walke contrary vnto me, Leviticus 26:28 then I wyll walke contrarye vnto you also wrathfullye and wyll also chastyce you seuen tymes for youre synnes: Leviticus 26:29 so that ye shall eate the flesh of your sonnes & the fleshe of youre daughters. Leviticus 26:30 And I wyll destroy your alters bylt vpon hye hylles, and ouerthrow youre images and caste youre carkasses vpon the bodyes of your idolles, and my soule shall abhorre you. Leviticus 26:31 And I wyl make your cityes desolate, and brynge your sanctuaries vnto nought, and wyll not smel the sauoures of your swete odoures. Leviticus 26:32 And I wyl brynge the lande vnto a wyldernesse: so that your enemies whych dwell therin shal wonder at it. Leviticus 26:33 And I wyl strawe you among the Heathen, and wyl draw out a swerde after you, and youre land shal be waste, and your cityes desolate. Leviticus 26:34 Then the Lande shall reioyce in hyr Sabbothes, as longe as it lyeth voyde and ye in youre enemyes lande: euen then shal the Lande kepe holy day and reioyce in hir Sabbothes. Leviticus 26:35 And as longe as it lyeth voyde it shall rest, for that it could not rest in your Sabothes, when ye dwelt therin. Leviticus 26:36 And vpon them that are left a liue of you I wyl sende a fayntnes into theyr hertes, in all the land of their enemies: so þt the sound of a leaf that falleth, shall chase them & they shall flee as though they fled a swerde, and shall fal, no man folowyng them. Leviticus 26:37 And they shal fal, one vpon another, as it were before a swerde, euen no man folowyng them, and ye shal haue no power to stand before your enemies. Leviticus 26:38 And ye shall peryshe amonge the Heathen, and the land of your enemies shal eate you vp. Leviticus 26:39 And they that are lefte of you, shall pyne away in theyr vnryghtuousnes, euen in their enymyes lande, and also in the misdedes of their fathers shall they consume.
God promiseth to remember them that repent.
Leviticus 26:40 And they shall confesse theyr misdeades and the mysdeades of theyr fathers in theyr trespaces, which they haue trespaced agaynst me, & for that also þt they haue walked contrary to me. Leviticus 26:41 Therfore I also wyl walke contrarye vnto them, and wyl brynge theym into the lande of theyr enemies. And then at the least waye theyr vncircumcised hertes shalbe tamed, & then they shall make an atonement for theyr mysdeades. Leviticus 26:42 And I wyl remembre my bond with Iacob, and my testament wyth Isaac, and my testament wyth Abraham, and wyll thynke on the lande. Leviticus 26:43 For the Lande shall be lefte of them and shall haue pleasure in hyr Sabbothes, whyle she lyeth wast wythout them, & they shall make on atonement for theyr misdeades, bicause they despised my lawes and theyr soules refused mine ordinaunces. Leviticus 26:44 And yet for all that when they be in the Lande of their enemy, I wyll not so cast them away nor my soule shal not so abhorre them, that I wyll vtterlye destroye theym and breake myne appoyntment with them: for I am the Lord theyr God. Leviticus 26:45 I wyl therfore remembre vnto them the fyrst couenaunte made, when I brought them out of the Lande of Egypte in the syght of the Heathen to be their God: for I am the Lorde. Leviticus 26:46 These are the ordinaunces, iudgmentes, & lawes whych the Lord made betwene hym and the chyldren of Israell in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
