Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall not make unto you idols,neither image, nor pillar, shall ye set up for yourselves, nor, sculptured stone, shall ye place in your land, to bow yourselves down thereunto,For, I Yahweh, am your God.
Leviticus 26:2 My sabbaths, shall ye observe, And, my sanctuary, shall ye revere,I, am Yahweh.
A blessing to them that keep the Commandments.
Leviticus 26:3 If, in my statutes, ye will walk,And, my commandments, ye will observe, and do them, Leviticus 26:4 Then will I give your rains in their season,And the land shall yield her increase, And, the trees of the field, shall yield their fruit. Leviticus 26:5 Then shall your threshing reach unto the vintage, And, the vintage, shall reach unto the seedtime,And ye shall eat your food to the full, And shall dwell securely in your land. Leviticus 26:6 And I will give peace in the land, And ye shall lie down, and nothing shall make you afraid; And I will take away vicious beasts out of the land; And, the sword, shall not go through your land. Leviticus 26:7 And ye shall chase your foes,And they shall fall before you, by the sword; Leviticus 26:8 And, five, of you shall chase, a hundred, And, a hundred, of you shall put ten thousand to flight,So shall your foes fall before you, by the sword. Leviticus 26:9 And I will turn unto you, And make you fruitful,And multiply you, And will establish my covenant with you. Leviticus 26:10 And ye shall eat old store, well seasoned,And, the old from before the new, shall ye put forth. Leviticus 26:11 And I will set my habitation in your midst,And my soul shall not abhor, you; Leviticus 26:12 But I will walk to and fro in your midst, And will be unto you, a God, And, ye, shall be unto me, a people. Leviticus 26:13 IYahweh, am your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; so I brake in pieces the staves of your yoke, and caused you to walk, erect.
A curse to those that break them.
Leviticus 26:14 But, if ye will not hearken unto me, And will not do, all these commandments; Leviticus 26:15 And if, my statutes, ye refuse, And, my regulations, your souls shall abhor,So that ye will not do all my commandments, But shall break my covenant, Leviticus 26:16 I also, will do this unto youI will set over you, for terror, consumption and fever, Causing the eyes to fail, and the soul to pine away,And ye shall sow, in vain, your seed, for it shall be eaten by your foes. Leviticus 26:17 And I will set my face against you, And ye shall be smitten before your foes,And be trodden down by them who hate you, And shall flee, when no one is pursuing you. Leviticus 26:18 And, if even with these things, ye will not hearken unto me, Then will I yet further correct you, seven times, for your sins. Leviticus 26:19 So will I break your pomp of power, And will set your heavens as iron, and your land as bronze; Leviticus 26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vain,And your land shall not yield her increase, And, the trees of the land, shall not yield their fruit.
Leviticus 26:21 If, therefore, ye will go in opposition to me, And not be willing to hearken unto me, Then will I yet further plague you seven times, according to your sins; Leviticus 26:22 And will send among you the wild-beast of the field, And it shall rob you of your children, And cut off your cattle, And make you few in number; And your roads shall be silent. Leviticus 26:23 And, if, by these things, ye will not be corrected by me,But will go in opposition to me, Leviticus 26:24 Then will, I also, go in opposition, to you. And I, even I, will plague you seven times, for your sins; Leviticus 26:25 And will bring in upon you a sword, that shall inflict the covenanted avenging: So shall ye be gathered into your cities,Then will I send a pestilence into your midst, And ye shall be delivered into the hand of an enemy. Leviticus 26:26 When I have broken your staff of bread, then shall ten women bake your bread in one oven, And give back your bread by weight,And ye shall eat, and not be filled. Leviticus 26:27 And, if, with this, ye will not hearken to me,But will go in opposition to me, Leviticus 26:28 Then will I go in a rage of opposition to you,And I, even I, will correct you seven times, for your sins; Leviticus 26:29 And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons,Yea, even the flesh of your daughters, shall ye eat. Leviticus 26:30 And I will destroy your high places, And cut down your sun-pillars, And cast your carcases upon the carcases of your manufactured gods,Thus shall my soul abhor you. Leviticus 26:31 And I will give your cities unto desolation, And make your holy places dumb,And will find no fragrance in your satisfying odour; Leviticus 26:32 And, I, will make the land dumb, And your foes that dwell therein shall regard it with dumb amazement: Leviticus 26:33 When, even you, I scatter among the nations, And make bare, after you, a sword. Then shall your land become an astonishment, And your cities become a desolation. Leviticus 26:34 Then, shall the land be paid her sabbaths, All the days she lieth desolate, While, ye, are in the land of your foes,Then, shall the land keep sabbath, And pay off her sabbaths: Leviticus 26:35 All the days she lieth desolate, shall she keep sabbath,the which she kept not as your sabbaths, while ye dwelt thereupon. Leviticus 26:36 And, as for such as are left of you, Then will I bring faintness into their heart, in the lands of their foes,So that the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them, And they shall flee as though fleeing from a sword, And they shall fall, when no one is pursuing; Leviticus 26:37 And they shall stumble one upon another, as from before a sword, when, pursuer, there is none; And ye shall not have wherewith to stand before your foes; Leviticus 26:38 And ye shall perish among the nations,And the land of your foes shall eat you up; Leviticus 26:39 And, they who are left of you, shall melt away in their iniquity, in the lands of your foes; Yea also, in the iniquity of their fathers with them, shall they melt away.
God promiseth to remember them that repent.
Leviticus 26:40 Then shall they confess their iniquity, And the iniquity of their fathers, In their unfaithfulness wherewith they had been unfaithful towards me; Yea moreover, because they had gone in opposition to me, Leviticus 26:41 I also, must needs go in opposition to them, and bring them into the land of their foes,Save only that, if, even then, their uncircumcised heart shall be humbled, And, even then, they shall accept as a payment the punishment of their iniquity, Leviticus 26:42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, Yea moreover, my covenant with Isaac, Yea moreover, my covenant with Abraham, will I remember; And, the land, will I remember. Leviticus 26:43 For, the land, shall be left of them, And shall be paid her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them, They also, accepting as a payment the punishment of their iniquity, Because, yea because, my regulations, they refused, And, my statutes, their soul abhorred. Leviticus 26:44 And yet, even so, when they are in the land of their foes, I have not refused them, Neither have I abhorred them, To make an end of them, To break my covenant with them,For, IYahweh, am their God. Leviticus 26:45 Therefore will I remember in their behalf, the covenant of their ancestors,Whom, I brought forth out of the land of Egypt, in the sight of the nations, that I might be their GodIYahweh. Leviticus 26:46 These, are the statutes and the regulations and the laws, which Yahweh granted between himself, and the sons of Israel,in Mount Sinai, by the mediation of Moses.
