Barnes' Notes
<< Leviticus 25:55   Leviticus 26:2 >>


Leviticus 26:1

Idols - literally, "things of nought." Hebrew 'ĕlı̂ylı̂m . There appears to have been a play on the similarity in sound of this word to 'ĕlohı̂ym (God). Compare I Corinthians 8:4.

Standing image - Either an upright statue, or a pillar, such as an obelisk or a Celtic menhir, set up for an idolatrous purpose (compare Exodus 34:13 note). The public worship of Yahweh required, first, the exclusion of all visible symbols of deity as well as of all idolatrous objects, and next Leviticus 26:2, the keeping holy the times and the place appointed by the Law for His formal service. The word "sabbaths" must here include the whole of the set times. See Leviticus 23:3 note.
