CLV(i) 1 You shall not make forbidden idols for yourselves, nor set up carvings and monuments for yourselves, nor put a stone picture in your land to bow yourself down before it, for I, Yahweh, am your Elohim. 2 Instead My sabbaths shall you observe, and My sanctuary shall you fear:I am Yahweh. 3 If you walk by My statutes and observe My instructions and keep them, 4 then I will give your downpours in their season, and the land will give its crop, and the tree of the field shall give its fruit. 5 Your threshing will overtake the vintage, and the vintage, it shall overtake the sowing; you will eat your bread to satisfaction and dwell in trust in your land. 6 I will give peace in the land, and you will lie down with no one making you tremble; I will eradicate the vicious animal from the land, and no sword shall pass through your land. 7 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall before you by the sword;" 8 five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you shall pursue a myriad, and your enemies will fall before you by the sword. 9 I will countenance you, make you fruitful, increase you and confirm My covenant with you. 10 You will eat stored stores and bring forth the stores in view of the new. 11 I will put My tabernacle in your midst, and My soul shall not loathe you. 12 I will walk about in your midst and will be your Elohim and you, you shall be My people. 13 I, Yahweh, am your Elohim Who brought you forth from the land of Egypt, from being servants to them. I have broken the slider bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk upraised. 14 Yet if you neither hearken to Me nor observe all these instructions, 15 and if you reject My statutes, and if your soul loathes My judgments so as not to observe all My instructions, to cause you to annul My covenant, 16 indeed, I Myself shall do this to you:I will visit panic upon you, attenuation and fever, making the eyesight vanish and causing the soul to pine; and you will sow your seed for naught, for your enemies will eat it. 17 I will set My face against you, and you will be struck down before your enemies; those hating you will hold sway over you, and you will flee even when there is no one pursuing you. 18 And if, after these things, you should not hearken to Me, then I will continue to discipline you sevenfold for your sins. 19 I will break the pomp of your strength and make your heavens like iron and your land like copper. 20 Your vigor will be spent for naught, and your land shall not give its crop, and the tree of the field shall not give its fruit. 21 If you go contrary to Me and are not willing to hearken to Me, then I will add smitings to you sevenfold according to your sins. 22 I will send the animal of the field against you, and it will bereave you, cut off your domestic beasts and so decrease you that your roads will be desolated. 23 If by these you should not be disciplined for Me and go contrary to Me, 24 then I will, indeed, go contrary to you, and I Myself will even smite you sevenfold for your sins. 25 I will bring the sword on you avenging the vengeance of the covenant. When you will be gathered into your cities then I will send the plague into your midst, and you will be given into the hand of the enemy. 26 When I break the stock of bread for you then ten women will bake your bread in one stove and return your bread by weight so that you will eat and not be satisfied. 27 If by this you should not hearken to Me and go contrary to Me, 28 then I will go contrary to you in fury. And I Myself, indeed, will discipline you sevenfold for your sins. 29 You will eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat. 30 I will exterminate your fane heights, cut down your incense stands and bestow your corpses upon the corpses of your idol clods; thus My soul will loathe you. 31 I will turn your cities into a desert and make your sanctuary desolate; I shall not smell your fragrant odor. 32 I will make the land so desolate, that your enemies, the ones dwelling in it, will be dejected over it. 33 And you I shall winnow among the nations, and I will unsheathe a sword after you so that your land will become a desolation and your cities become a desert. 34 Then the land shall accept its sabbaths all the days of its desolation when you are in the land of your enemies. Then the land shall pause for a sabbath and cause its missing sabbaths to be accepted. 35 All the days of its desolation it shall pause for a sabbath, which days it did not pause in your sabbath years when you dwelt on it. 36 As for the remainder among you, I will also bring timidity into their heart in the lands of their enemies so that the sound of a leaf being whisked away will pursue them, and they will flee as if in flight from the sword; they will fall even when there is no one pursuing. 37 They will stumble, a man over his brother, as though in view of the sword when there is no pursuer, and you shall come to have no standing space before your enemies. 38 You will perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies will devour you. 39 The remainder among you shall be putrid over their depravity in the lands of your enemies, and also over the depravities of their fathers with them shall they be putrid. 40 If they will confess their depravity and the depravity of their fathers in their offense (when they had offended Me and, indeed, when they had gone contrary to M. 41 so that I Myself also went contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies), if then their uncircumcised heart should submit, and if then they should accept their depravity, 42 then I will remember My covenant with Jacob and also My covenant with Isaac; also My covenant with Abraham shall I remember, and the land shall I remember. 43 Yet the land, it shall be forsaken of them and shall accept its sabbath years while it is desolate without them, and they themselves shall accept their depravity because, yes because they had rejected My judgments and their soul had loathed My statutes. 44 Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies I will not reject them nor loathe them so as to finish them, to annul My covenant with them, for I, Yahweh, am their Elohim. 45 For their benefit I will remember the covenant with the former ones whom I brought forth from the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations to be their Elohim; I am Yahweh. 46 These are the statutes, the judgments and the laws which Yahweh put between Him and the sons of Israel on Mount Sinai by means of Moses.
