Leviticus 26:24 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 26:24

Then I will also walk contrary unto you
Opposing himself unto them as their enemy, fighting against them in his providence, whetting his sword, bending his bow, and causing the arrows of his wrath and vengeance to fall upon them; or behaving towards them in a careless and indifferent manner, not regarding what befell them, showing no peculiar concern for them, or as exercising any particular providence over them; but as if everything came by chance to them, which was the language of their actions, if not of their lips: and will punish you yet seven times for your sins;
add fresh corrections, and these greater than before, and more numerous in proportion to their aggravated transgressions.
