Leviticus 26

26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear
 you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up [any] image of
 stone in your land, to bow down to it: for I [am] the LORD your
26:2 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I
 [am] the LORD.
26:3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do
26:4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall
 yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield
 their fruit:
26:5 And your threshing shall reach to the vintage, and the
 vintage shall reach to the sowing time; and ye shall eat your
 bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down,
 and none shall make [you] afraid: and I will rid the land of
 evil beasts, neither shall the sword go through your land.
26:7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before
 you by the sword.
26:8 And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you
 shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall
 before you by the sword.
26:9 For I will have respect to you, and make you fruitful, and
 multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.
26:10 And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old
 because of the new.
26:11 And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall
 not abhor you.
26:12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye
 shall be my people.
26:13 I [am] the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land
 of Egypt, that ye should not be their bond-men, and I have
 broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.
26:14 But if ye will not hearken to me, and will not do all
 these commandments;
26:15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul shall
 abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments,
 [but] that ye break my covenant:
26:16 I also will do this to you, I will even appoint over you
 terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume
 the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed
 in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain
 before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you,
 and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
26:18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken to me, then I
 will punish you seven times more for your sins.
26:19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make
 your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land
 shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the
 land yield their fruits.
26:21 And if ye shall walk contrary to me, and will not hearken
 to me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according
 to your sins.
26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob
 you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few
 in number, and your [high]-ways shall be desolate.
26:23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but
 will walk contrary to me;
26:24 Then will I also walk contrary to you, and I will punish
 you yet seven times for your sins.
26:25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the
 quarrel of [my] covenant: and when ye are gathered within your
 cities, I will send the pestilence among you: and ye shall be
 delivered into the hand of the enemy.
26:26 [And] when I have broke the staff of your bread, ten women
 shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver [you]
 your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be
26:27 And if ye will not for all this hearken to me, but walk
 contrary to me;
26:28 Then I will walk contrary to you also in fury; and I, even
 I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
26:29 And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of
 your daughters shall ye eat.
26:30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your
 images, and cast your carcasses upon the carcasses of your
 idols, and my soul shall abhor you.
26:31 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your
 sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the savor of
 your sweet odors.
26:32 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your
 enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it.
26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw
 out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and
 your cities waste.
26:34 Then 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.
26:35 As long as it lieth desolate, it shall rest; because it
 did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
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; and
 the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall
 flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall, when none
26:37 And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a
 sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand
 before your enemies.
26:38 And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of
 your enemies shall eat you up.
26:39 And 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.
26:40 If 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;
26:41 And [that] I also have walked contrary to them, and have
 brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their
 uncircumcised hearts shall be humbled, and they then accept of
 the punishment of their iniquity:
26:42 Then 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.
26:43 The land also shall be left by 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.
26:44 And yet for all that, when they shall be in the land of
 their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor
 them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with
 them; for I [am] the LORD their God.
26:45 But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their
 ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight
 of the heathen, that I might be their God: I [am] the LORD.
26:46 These [are] the statutes, and judgments, and laws, which
 the LORD made between him and the children of Israel in mount
 Sinai by the hand of Moses.
