Leviticus 26:37 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Their towns and their sanctuaries He would destroy, because He took no pleasure in their sacrificial worship. מקדּשׁים are the holy things of the worship of Jehovah, the tabernacle and temple, with their altars and the rest of their holy furniture, as in Psalm 68:36; Psalm 74:7. ניחח ריח (Leviticus 1:9) is the odour of the sacrifice; and ריח, to smell, an anthropomorphic designation of divine satisfaction (cf. Amos 5:21; Isaiah 11:3).
