Vayikra (Book of Leviticus), Chapter 26

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Ye shall make you no idols, neither shall ye rear you up a graven image, or a pillar, neither shall ye place any figured stone in your land, to bow down unto it; for I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Ye shall keep My sabbaths, and reverence My sanctuary: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 If ye walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 then I will give your rains in their season, and the land shall yield her produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time; and ye shall eat your bread until ye have enough, and dwell in your land safely.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid; and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 And I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you; and will establish My covenant with you.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 And ye shall eat old store long kept, and ye shall bring forth the old from before the new.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 And I will set My tabernacle among you, and My soul shall not abhor you.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 And I will walk among you, and will be your G-d, and ye shall be My people.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 I am HaShem your G-d, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bars of your yoke, and made you go upright.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 But if ye will not hearken unto Me, and will not do all these commandments;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 and if ye shall reject My statutes, and if your soul abhor Mine ordinances, so that ye will not do all My commandments, but break My covenant;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 I also will do this unto you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that shall make the eyes to fail, and the soul to languish; and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 And I will set My face against you, and ye shall be smitten before your enemies; they that hate you shall rule over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 And if ye will not yet for these things hearken unto Me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 And your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield her produce, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 And if ye walk contrary unto Me, and will not hearken unto Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 And I will send the beast of the field among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your ways shall become desolate.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 And if in spite of these things ye will not be corrected unto Me, but will walk contrary unto Me;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 then will I also walk contrary unto you; and I will smite you, even I, seven times for your sins.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant; and ye shall be gathered together within your cities; and I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 When I break your staff of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver your bread again by weight; and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 And if ye will not for all this hearken unto Me, but walk contrary unto Me;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 then I will walk contrary unto you in fury; and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-pillars, and cast your carcasses upon the carcasses of your idols; and My soul shall abhor you.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 And I will make your cities a waste, and will bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 And I will bring the land into desolation; and your enemies that dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 And you will I scatter among the nations, and I will draw out the sword after you; and your land shall be a desolation, and your cities shall be a waste.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000021-QINU`"'34 Then shall the land be paid her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye are in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and repay her sabbaths.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000022-QINU`"'35 As long as it lieth desolate it shall have rest; even the rest which it had not in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000023-QINU`"'36 And as for them that are left of you, I will send a faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as one fleeth from the sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000024-QINU`"'37 And they shall stumble one upon another, as it were before the sword, when none pursueth; and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000025-QINU`"'38 And ye shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000026-QINU`"'39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000027-QINU`"'40 And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their treachery which they committed against Me, and also that they have walked contrary unto Me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000028-QINU`"'41 I also will walk contrary unto them, and bring them into the land of their enemies; if then perchance their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then be paid the punishment of their iniquity;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000029-QINU`"'42 then will I remember My covenant with Jacob, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002A-QINU`"'43 For the land shall lie forsaken without them, and shall be paid her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them; and they shall be paid the punishment of their iniquity; because, even because they rejected Mine ordinances, and their soul abhorred My statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002B-QINU`"'44 And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break My covenant with them; for I am HaShem their G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002C-QINU`"'45 But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their G-d: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002D-QINU`"'46 These are the statutes and ordinances and laws, which HaShem made between Him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
