26:18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then
I will punish you h seven times more for your sins.
(h) That is, more extremely.
26:19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make
your heaven as i iron, and your earth as brass:
(i) You shall have drought and barrenness.
26:21 And if ye walk k contrary unto me, and will not hearken
unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you
according to your sins.
(k) Or as some read, by fortune, imputing my plagues to
chance and fortune.
26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall l
rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and
make you few in number; and your m [high] ways shall be
(l) Read (2Ki 17:25).
(m) Because no one dares to pass by it for fear of the
26:26 [And] when I have broken the n staff of your bread, ten
women shall bake your bread in one o oven, and they
shall deliver [you] your bread again by weight: and ye
shall eat, and not be satisfied.
(n) That is, the strength by which life is sustained,
(o) One oven will be sufficient for ten families.
26:31 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your
sanctuaries unto desolation, and I p will not smell the
savour of your sweet odours.
(p) I will not accept your sacrifices.
26:35 As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did
not rest in your r sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
(r) Which I commanded you to keep.
26:36 And upon them that are left [alive] of you I will send a
faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies;

shall s flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall
fall when none pursueth.
(s) As if their enemies chased them.
26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their

(t) In that, as they are blameworthy of their fathers
faults, they shall be punished as well as their
26:43u The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy
her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and
they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
because, even because they despised my judgments, and
because their soul abhorred my statutes.
(u) While they are captives, and without repentance.
26:45 But I will for their sakes remember the x covenant of

God: I [am] the LORD.
(x) Made to their forefathers.
26:46 These [are] the statutes and judgments and laws, which the
LORD made between him and the children of Israel in mount
y Sinai by the hand of Moses.
