Leviticus 26

<< Leviticus 26 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1Ye shall make no idols for yourselves nor graven image, neither shall you raise up a title, neither shall ye place any painted stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I AM your God. 2Keep my sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD. 3If ye walk in my statutes and keep my commandments and do them, 4then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5And your threshing shall last unto the vintage, and the vintage shall last unto the sowing time; and ye shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land safely. 6For I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid; and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 7And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8And five of you shall chase one hundred, and one hundred of you shall put ten thousands to flight; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9For I will return unto you and make you fruitful and multiply you and establish my covenant with you. 10And ye shall eat old store and bring forth the old because of the new. 11And I will set my dwelling among you, and my soul shall not abhor you. 12And I will walk among you and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. 13I AM your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their slaves; and I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk with your faces uplifted.

14But if ye will not hearken unto me and will not do all these my commandments; 15and if ye shall despise my statutes or if your soul should abhor my rights so that ye will not do all my commandments but that ye break my covenant, 16I also will do this unto you: I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague that shall consume the eyes and torment the soul, and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17And I will place my wrath upon you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies; those that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when no one pursues you. 18And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. 19And I will break the pride of your stronghold, and I will make your heaven as iron and your earth as bronze. 20And your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. 21And if ye walk contrary unto me and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. 22I will also send wild beasts among you which shall rapture your children and destroy your animals and make you few in number, and your ways shall be desolate. 23And if ye will not be corrected by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me, 24then will I also walk contrary unto you and will punish you yet seven times for your sins. 25And I will bring an avenging sword upon you, in vindication of the covenant; and ye shall gather together within your cities; but I will send pestilence among you, and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight, and ye shall eat and not be satisfied. 27And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me but walk contrary unto me, 28then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury, and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. 29And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. 30And I will destroy your high places and cut down your images and cast your carcasses upon the carcasses of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you. 31And I will make your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the aroma of your suave incense. 32And I will bring the land into desolation, and your enemies who dwell therein shall be astonished at it. 33And I will scatter you among the Gentiles and will draw out a sword after you, and your land shall be desolate and your cities waste. 34Then shall the land rest for her sabbaths all the days that it lies desolate, while you are in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest and enjoy her sabbaths. 35All the time that it shall be desolate, it shall rest that which it did not rest in your sabbaths when ye dwelt upon it. 36And upon those that are left alive of you I will send such cowardice into their hearts in the lands of their enemies, that the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursue. 37And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursue; and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38And ye shall perish among the Gentiles, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39And those that are left of you shall pine away for their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; and for the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

40And they shall confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers for their trespass which they trespassed against me and that also they have walked contrary unto me, 41and that I also have walked contrary unto them and have brought them into the land of their enemies; and then their uncircumcised hearts shall be humbled, and they shall plead because of their iniquity; 42and I will remember my covenant with Jacob and likewise my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember, and I will remember the land. 43That the land shall be without them and shall rest her sabbaths, being desolate because of them; and they shall plead because of their iniquity because they despised my rights and their soul abhorred my statutes. 44And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them to destroy them utterly and to break my covenant with them; for I AM their God. 45But I will remember them because of the old covenant, when I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the Gentiles, that I might be their God: I am the LORD. 46These are the statutes and rights and laws, which the LORD established between him and the sons of Israel in Mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
