(15) And if ye shall despise my statutes.--From passive indifference to the Divine statutes mentioned in the preceding verse, their falling away is sure to follow. Hence what was at first mere listlessness now develops itself into a contemptuous education of God's ordinances.

Or if your soul abhor my judgments.--Better, and if your soul, &c, as the picture of their Apostasy goes on developing itself.

But that ye break my covenant.--Better, that ye break, &c, without the "but," which is not in the original, and obscures the sense of the passage, since it is the fact of their abhorrence of God's law which breaks the Divine covenant with them. (See Genesis 17:14.) The sense is more correctly given by rendering this clause "Thus breaking my covenant," or "Thereby breaking my covenant."

26:14-39 After God has set the blessing before them which would make them a happy people if they would be obedient, he here sets the curse before them, the evils which would make them miserable, if they were disobedient. Two things would bring ruin. 1. A contempt of God's commandments. They that reject the precept, will come at last to renounce the covenant. 2. A contempt of his corrections. If they will not learn obedience by the things they suffer, God himself would be against them; and this is the root and cause of all their misery. And also, The whole creation would be at war with them. All God's sore judgments would be sent against them. The threatenings here are very particular, they were prophecies, and He that foresaw all their rebellions, knew they would prove so. TEMPORAL judgments are threatened. Those who will not be parted from their sins by the commands of God, shall be parted from them by judgments. Those wedded to their lusts, will have enough of them. SPIRITUAL judgments are threatened, which should seize the mind. They should find no acceptance with God. A guilty conscience would be their continual terror. It is righteous with God to leave those to despair of pardon, who presume to sin; and it is owing to free grace, if we are not left to pine away in the iniquity we were born in, and have lived in.
