Leviticus 26:1-46, NLT
Blessings for Obedience
1“Do not make idols or set up carved images, or sacred pillars, or sculptured stones in your land so you may worship them. I am the Lord your God.
3“If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands,
6“I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear. I will rid the land of wild animals and keep your enemies out of your land.
9“I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill my covenant with you.
Punishments for Disobedience
14“However, if you do not listen to me or obey all these commands,
18“And if, in spite of all this, you still disobey me, I will punish you seven times over for your sins.
21“If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey me, I will inflict disaster on you seven times over for your sins.
23“And if you fail to learn the lesson and continue your hostility toward me,
27“If in spite of all this you still refuse to listen and still remain hostile toward me,
36“And for those of you who survive, I will demoralize you in the land of your enemies. You will live in such fear that the sound of a leaf driven by the wind will send you fleeing. You will run as though fleeing from a sword, and you will fall even when no one pursues you.
40“But at last my people will confess their sins and the sins of their ancestors for betraying me and being hostile toward me.
44“But despite all this, I will not utterly reject or despise them while they are in exile in the land of their enemies. I will not cancel my covenant with them by wiping them out, for I am the Lord their God.
46These are the decrees, regulations, and instructions that the Lord gave through Moses on Mount Sinai as evidence of the relationship between himself and the Israelites.
