Leviticus 26:3-5 New English Translation (NET Bible)

The Benefits of Obedience

“‘If you walk in my statutes and are sure to obey my commandments,[a] I will give you your rains in their time so that[b] the land will give its yield and the trees of the field will produce their fruit.[c] Threshing season will extend for you until the season for harvesting grapes,[d] and the season for harvesting grapes will extend until sowing season, so[e] you will eat your bread until you are satisfied,[f] and you will live securely in your land.

Footnotes:

  1. Leviticus 26:3 tn Heb “and my commandments you shall keep and do them.” This appears to be a kind of verbal hendiadys, where the first verb is a modifier of the action of the second verb (see GKC 386 §120.d, although שָׁמַר [shamar, “to keep”] is not cited there; cf. Lev 20:8; 25:18, etc.).
  2. Leviticus 26:4 tn Heb “and.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) can be considered to have resultative force here.
  3. Leviticus 26:4 tn Heb “the tree of the field will give its fruit.” As a collective singular this has been translated as plural.
  4. Leviticus 26:5 tn Heb “will reach for you the vintage season.”
  5. Leviticus 26:5 tn Heb “and.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) can be considered to have resultative force here.
  6. Leviticus 26:5 tn Heb “to satisfaction”; KJV, ASV, NASB “to the full.”
