Bible: Leviticus 26:33-39
26:34 “‘Then the land will make up for 2 its Sabbaths all the days it lies desolate while you are in the land of your enemies; then the land will rest and make up its Sabbaths. 26:35 All the days of the desolation it will have the rest it did not have 3 on your Sabbaths when you lived on it.
26:36 “‘As for 4 the ones who remain among you, I will bring despair into their hearts in the lands of their enemies. The sound of a blowing leaf will pursue them, and they will flee as one who flees the sword and fall down even though there is no pursuer. 26:37 They will stumble over each other as those who flee before a sword, though 5 there is no pursuer, and there will be no one to take a stand 6 for you before your enemies. 26:38 You will perish among the nations; the land of your enemies will consume you.
