Leviticus 26:42-44 New English Translation (NET Bible)

42 I will remember my covenant with Jacob and also my covenant with Isaac and also my covenant with Abraham,[a] and I will remember the land. 43 The land will be abandoned by them[b] in order that it may make up for[c] its Sabbaths while it is made desolate[d] without them,[e] and they will make up for their iniquity because[f] they have rejected my regulations and have abhorred[g] my statutes. 44 In spite of this, however, when they are in the land of their enemies I will not reject them and abhor them to make a complete end of them, to break my covenant with them, for I am the Lord their God.

Footnotes:

  1. Leviticus 26:42 tn Heb “my covenant with Abraham I will remember.” The phrase “I will remember” has not been repeated in the translation for stylistic reasons.
  2. Leviticus 26:43 tn Heb “from them.” The preposition “from” refers here to the agent of the action (J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 455).
  3. Leviticus 26:43 tn The jussive form of the verb with the simple vav (ו) here calls for a translation that expresses purpose.
  4. Leviticus 26:43 tn The verb is the Hophal infinitive construct with the third feminine singular suffix (GKC 182 §67.y; cf. v. 34).
  5. Leviticus 26:43 tn Heb “from them.”
  6. Leviticus 26:43 tn Heb “because and in because,” a double expression, which is used only here and in Ezek 13:10 (without the vav) for emphasis (GKC 492 §158.b).
  7. Leviticus 26:43 tn Heb “and their soul has abhorred.”

Leviticus 26:42-44 New International Version (NIV)

42 I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. 43 For the land will be deserted by them and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them. They will pay for their sins because they rejected my laws and abhorred my decrees. 44 Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them or abhor them so as to destroy them completely, breaking my covenant with them. I am the Lord their God.
