Leviticus 26 (asv)

Leviticus 26 (asv)

26:1Ye shall make you no idols, neither shall ye rear you up a graven image, or a pillar, neither shall ye place any figured stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Jehovah your God. 26:2Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am Jehovah.

26:3If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 26:4then I will give your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 26:5And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time; and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. 26:6And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 26:7And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 26:8And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 26:9And I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and will establish my covenant with you. 26:10And ye shall eat old store long kept, and ye shall bring forth the old because of the new. 26:11And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. 26:12And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. 26:13I am Jehovah your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bars of your yoke, and made you go upright.

26:14But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; 26:15and if ye shall reject my statutes, and if your soul abhor mine ordinances, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but break my covenant; 26:16I also will do this unto you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that shall consume the eyes, and make the soul to pine away; and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 26:17And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be smitten before your enemies: they that hate you shall rule over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. 26:18And if ye will not yet for these things hearken unto me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins. 26:19And I will break the pride of your power: and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass;26:20and your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.

26:21And 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. 26:22And I will send the beast of the field among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your ways shall become desolate.26:23And if by these things ye will not be reformed unto me, but will walk contrary unto me; 26:24then will I also walk contrary unto you; and I will smite you, even I, seven times for your sins. 26:25And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant; and ye shall be gathered together within your cities: and I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26:26When I break your staff of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

26:27And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; 26:28then I will walk contrary unto you in wrath; and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins. 26:29And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. 26:30And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-images, and cast your dead bodies upon the bodies of your idols; and my soul shall abhor you. 26:31And I will make your cities a waste, and will bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors. 26:32And I will bring the land into desolation; and your enemies that dwell therein shall be astonished at it.26:33And you will I scatter among the nations, and I will draw out the sword after you: and your land shall be a desolation, and your cities shall be a waste.

26:34Then shall the land enjoy its sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye are in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy its sabbaths. 26:35As long as it lieth desolate it shall have rest, even the rest which it had not in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it. 26:36And as for them that are left of you, I will send a faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies: and the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as one fleeth from the sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth. 26:37And they shall stumble one upon another, as it were before the sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 26:38And ye shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 26:39And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

26:40And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their trespass which they trespassed against me, and also that, because they walked contrary unto me, 26:41I also walked contrary unto them, and brought them into the land of their enemies: if then their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity; 26:42then will I remember my covenant with Jacob; and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land. 26:43The land also shall be left by them, and shall enjoy its sabbaths, while it lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity; because, even because they rejected mine ordinances, and their soul abhorred my statutes. 26:44And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them; for I am Jehovah their God; 26:45but I will for their sakes remember 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 God: I am Jehovah.

26:46These are the statutes and ordinances and laws, which Jehovah made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by Moses.
