Blessings for Obedience

Leviticus 26

1 'You shall a not make idols for yourselves;
neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves;
nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it;
for I am the LORD your God.
2 b You shall 1 keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary:
I am the LORD.

3 c 'If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, 4 d then I will give you rain in its season, e the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5 f Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing;
you shall eat your bread to the full, and g dwell in your land safely.
6 h I will give peace in the land, and i you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid;
I will rid the land of j evil 2 beasts,
and k the sword will not go through your land.
7 You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. 8 l Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight;
your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.
9 'For I will m look on you favorably and n make you fruitful, multiply you and confirm My o covenant with you. 10 You shall eat the p old harvest, and clear out the old because of the new. 11 q I will set My 3 tabernacle among you, and My soul shall not abhor you. 12 r I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people. 13 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves;
I have broken the bands of your s yoke and made you walk 4 upright.
