References for Leviticus 26:40
which made me oppose them, so I took them into enemy territory—or if their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they make up for their guilt,
then I will remember my covenant with Jacob. I will also remember my covenant with Isaac. And my covenant with Abraham. And I will remember the land.
The land will be absent of them and will be enjoying its sabbaths while it lies devastated, free of them. They will be making up for their guilty deeds for no other reason than the fact that they rejected my regulations and despised my rules.
But despite all that, when they are in enemy territory, I will not reject them or despise them to the point of totally destroying them, breaking my covenant with them by doing so, because I am the LORD their God.
But for their sake I will remember the covenant with the first generation, the ones I brought out of Egypt's land in the sight of all the nations, in order to be their God; I am the LORD.
These are the rules, regulations, and instructions between the LORD and the Israelites that he gave through Moses on Mount Sinai.
