1 You shall not make for you vain·​·gods nor a graven image; you shall not raise·​·up a statue; you shall not put stone imagery in your land, to bow·​·down to it; for I am Jehovah your God.

2 My Sabbaths you shall keep, and My sanctuary you shall fear; I am Jehovah.

3 If you walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them;

4 then I will give your showers in their time, and the land shall give her produce, and the tree of the field shall give its fruit.

5 And for you the threshing shall overtake the vintage, and the vintage shall overtake the seed time; and you shall eat your bread to satisfaction, and dwell in your land securely.

6 And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie·​·down, and none shall frighten you; and I will make the evil animal cease from the land, and the sword shall not pass·​·through in your land.

7 And you shall pursue your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.

8 And five of you shall pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you shall pursue a myriad; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

9 And I will turn· My ·face to you, and make· you ·fruitful, and multiply you, and raise·​·up My covenant with you.

10 And you shall eat the old which is old*, and bring·​·out the old from before the new.

11 And I will put My Habitation among you; and My soul shall not abhor you.

12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be My people.

13 I am Jehovah your God, who brought· you ·out from the land of Egypt, from being their servants; and I have broken the braces of your yoke, and caused you to go erect.

14 But if you will not hearken to Me, and will not do all these commandments;

15 and if you shall reject My statutes, and if your soul abhor My judgments, that you will not do all My commandments, to make· My covenant ·of·​·none·​·effect,

16 I also will do this to you; and I will visit on you vexation, the consumption, and the fever, that shall consume· the eyes ·completely, and torment of soul; and you shall sow your seed to emptiness, and your enemies shall eat it.

17 And I will put My face against you, and you shall be struck before your enemies; they that hate you shall have·​·dominion over you; and you shall flee and none pursues you.

18 And if you will not as·​·far·​·as these hearken to Me, then I will chastise you seven times again for your sins.

19 And I will break the pride of your strength; and I will put your heavens as iron, and your earth as bronze;

20 and your power shall be finished in emptiness; and your land shall not give her produce, and the tree of the land shall not give its fruit.

21 And if you walk contrary with Me, and are· not ·willing to hearken to Me; then I will add upon you seven smitings according·​·to your sins.

22 And I will send wild·​·animals of the field among you, and they shall bereave you, and shall cut·​·off your beasts, and make· you ·few; and your ways shall be·​·desolate.

23 And if you will not be instructed by Me by these things, but will walk contrary to Me;

24 and I will also walk contrary to you, and I will smite you yet seven times for your sins.

25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the vengeance of My covenant; and when you are gathered·​·together into your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be given into the hand of the enemy.

26 When I have broken the rod of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall return you your bread by weight; and you shall eat, and not be satisfied.

27 And if you will not in this hearken to Me, but walk contrary to Me;

28 then I will walk contrary to you also in fury; and I, yea, I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat.

30 And I will blot·​·out your high·​·places, and cut·​·off your sun·​·statues, and put your corpses upon the corpses of your idols, and My soul shall abhor you.

31 And I will put your cities as a waste, and I will desolate your sanctuaries, and I will not smell the restful smell of your offerings.

32 And I will desolate the land; and your enemies upon her who dwell in her shall be·​·desolate.

33 And I will disperse you among the nations, and will unsheathe a sword after you; and your land shall be desolate, and your cities shall be a waste.

34 Then shall the land be·​·well·​·pleased in her Sabbaths, all the days of her desolation, and you are in the land of your enemies; then shall the land rest, and be well·​·pleased in her Sabbaths.

35 All the days it is·​·desolate it shall rest; that it did not rest in your Sabbaths, when you dwelt upon it.

36 And upon them that are left among you I will bring dismay* into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the voice of a leaf blown·​·away shall pursue them; and they shall flee as·​·if fleeing a sword; and they shall fall and none pursues.

37 And they shall stumble, a man upon his brother, as·​·it·​·were before a sword, and none pursues; and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies

38 And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat· you ·up.

39 And they who are left among you shall waste·​·away in their iniquity in the lands of your enemies; and yea, in the iniquities of their fathers shall they waste·​·away with them.

40 And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against Me, and that also they have walked contrary to Me;

41 and that I also have gone contrary to them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then are·​·well·​·pleasing of the punishment of their iniquity;

42 and I will 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.

43 And the land shall be forsaken of them, and shall be·​·well·​·pleased with her Sabbaths, when she is·​·desolated from them. And they shall be·​·well·​·pleased with their iniquity; because, even because, they rejected My judgments, and their soul abhorred My statutes.

44 And yea, for even this, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, and I will not abhor them to consume· them ·all, to make· My covenant with them ·of·​·none·​·effect; for I am Jehovah their God.

45 But I will remember for them the covenant of the first ones, whom I brought·​·out from the land of Egypt in the eyes of the nations, to be to them their God; I am Jehovah.

46 These are the statutes and judgments and laws which Jehovah gave, between Him and the sons of Israel in Mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.

Explanation of Leviticus 26      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-13. Man is commanded not to devote himself to any selfish or to any worldly affection, but above all things to worship the Lord from celestial love, because if he is obedient, he will enjoy every spiritual blessing including states of peace and tranquillity, and protection in all his temptations. For the Lord will dwell with His people, and the active life of uses will prevail, since He has accomplished the work of redemption

Verses 14-39. But, on the contrary, if the man of the Spiritual Church is disobedient and rejects the Lord and His Divine laws, then he will suffer from all kinds of calamities, which are described in order

Verses 40-46. And yet all who, in their degraded state, confess their wickedness, and sincerely repent, will again be received by the Lord, since He has effected the work of redemption, and has, by means of the Word, supplied man with an abundance of truths adapted to every state of his life.
