Leviticus 26:33-39

Context
26:33 I will scatter you among the nations and unsheathe the sword 1  after you, so your land will become desolate and your cities will become a waste.

26:34 “‘Then the land will make up for 2  its Sabbaths all the days it lies desolate while you are in the land of your enemies; then the land will rest and make up its Sabbaths. 26:35 All the days of the desolation it will have the rest it did not have 3  on your Sabbaths when you lived on it.

26:36 “‘As for 4  the ones who remain among you, I will bring despair into their hearts in the lands of their enemies. The sound of a blowing leaf will pursue them, and they will flee as one who flees the sword and fall down even though there is no pursuer. 26:37 They will stumble over each other as those who flee before a sword, though 5  there is no pursuer, and there will be no one to take a stand 6  for you before your enemies. 26:38 You will perish among the nations; the land of your enemies will consume you.

Restoration through Confession and Repentance

26:39 “‘As for the ones who remain among you, they will rot away because of 7  their iniquity in the lands of your enemies, and they will also rot away because of their ancestors’ 8  iniquities which are with them.

1 tn Heb “and I will empty sword” (see HALOT 1228 s.v. ריק 3).

2 tn There are two Hebrew roots רָצָה (ratsah), one meaning “to be pleased with; to take pleasure” (HALOT 1280-81 s.v. רצה; cf. “enjoy” in NASB, NIV, NRSV, and J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 452), and the other meaning “to restore” (HALOT 1281-82 s.v. II רצה; cf. NAB “retrieve” and B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 189).

3 tn Heb “it shall rest which it did not rest.”

4 tn Heb “And.”

5 tn Heb “and.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) is used in a concessive sense here.

6 tn The term rendered “to stand up” is a noun, not an infinitive. It occurs only here and appears to designate someone who would take a powerful stand for them against their enemies.

7 tn Heb “in” (so KJV, ASV; also later in this verse).

8 tn Heb “fathers’” (also in the following verse).
