What does Leviticus 26:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 26:15

And if ye shall despise my statutes
Which is an aggravated sin; to be negligent hearers of the commands of God is bad, not to be doers of them worse, but to treat them with contempt is worse still: or if your soul abhor my judgments:
which is worst of all, to despise them as if not wisely or righteously made is a dreadful reflection upon the Maker of them; but to abhor them as bad things, not fit to be regarded, but to be had in the utmost detestation, is shocking impiety: so that ye will not do all my commandments;
nor any of them, but are set against them, and determined and resolved on the contrary: [but] that ye break my covenant;
the covenant made with them at Sinai, when they promised, on their part, that they would hearken and be obedient, ( Exodus 24:7 ) .
