G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Leviticus 26

 

 

Verses 1-46

In these brief repetitions of laws two gracious promises and solemn warnings were set forth. The laws reiterated were fundamental. There must be no idolatry. There must be perpetual observance of the Sabbath and a constant reverence in the sanctuary. The great promises show how conditions of well-being are ever entirely dependent on obedience to the government of God.

In like manner the warnings show that disobedience will always be followed with calamity.

It is most instructive in the giving of the law, to observe how the declension and wandering of the people was evidently known to the King, and that notwithstanding this fact, these promises of final restoration were made. Thus, while human responsibility is most solemnly enforced, it is done in such a way as to create the conviction that the love of God will prove itself finally victorious over all human failure.
