Leviticus 26:18-21

Context

26:18 “‘If, in spite of all these things, 1  you do not obey me, I will discipline you seven times more on account of your sins. 2  26:19 I will break your strong pride and make your sky like iron and your land like bronze. 26:20 Your strength will be used up in vain, your land will not give its yield, and the trees of the land 3  will not produce their fruit.

26:21 “‘If you walk in hostility against me 4  and are not willing to obey me, I will increase your affliction 5  seven times according to your sins.

1 tn Heb “And if until these.”

2 tn Heb “I will add to discipline you seven [times] on your sins.”

3 tn Heb “the tree of the land will not give its fruit.” The collective singular has been translated as a plural. Tg. Onq., some medieval Hebrew mss, Smr, LXX, and Tg. Ps.-J. have “the field” as in v. 4, rather than “the land.”

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

5 tn Heb “your blow, stroke”; cf. TEV “punishment”; NLT “I will inflict you with seven more disasters.”
