What does Leviticus 26:2 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 26:2

Ye shall keep my sabbaths
The seventh day sabbaths, and the seventh year sabbaths; especially the former are meant, in which religious worship was given to the one true and living God, and therefore the observance of them is strictly enjoined; and hence this law follows closely upon the former, though Aben Ezra restrains it to the sabbatical years, or seventh year sabbaths, as he applies the sanctuary in the following clause to the jubilee year, which is said to be holy, ( Leviticus 26:12 ) ; supposing that this refers unto and stands in strict connection with the laws of the preceding chapter, concerning the sabbatical, ( Leviticus 25:1-7 ) , and jubilee years, ( Leviticus 25:8-55 ) : and reverence my sanctuary;
by attending in it, and on the worship in it, with reverence and godly fear, see ( Leviticus 19:30 ) ; I [am] the Lord;
who had a right to such religious worship, and to command such things, in which he ought to be obeyed, his sabbaths kept, and sanctuary reverenced.
