Leviticus 26:23-26

Context

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  26:26 When I break off your supply of bread, 7  ten women will bake your bread in one oven; they will ration your bread by weight, 8  and you will eat and not be satisfied.

1 tn Heb “And if in these.”

2 tn Heb “with me,” but see the added preposition בְּ (bet) on the phrase “in hostility” in vv. 24 and 27.

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).

7 tn Heb “When I break to you staff of bread” (KJV, ASV, and NASB all similar).

8 tn Heb “they will return your bread in weight.”
