26:23 “‘If in spite of these things 1 you do not allow yourselves to be disciplined and you walk in hostility against me, 2 26:24 I myself will also walk in hostility against you and strike you 3 seven times on account of your sins. 26:25 I will bring on you an avenging sword, a covenant vengeance. 4 Although 5 you will gather together into your cities, I will send pestilence among you and you will be given into enemy hands. 6
1 tn Heb “And if in these.”
3 tn Heb “and I myself will also strike you.”
4 tn Heb “vengeance of covenant”; cf. NAB “the avenger of my covenant.”
5 tn Heb “and.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) has a concessive force in this context.
6 tn Heb “in hand of enemy,” but Tg. Ps.-J. and Tg. Neof. have “in the hands of your enemies” (J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 454).
