Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 26:31


26:31 Sanctuaries - God's sanctuary, called sanctuaries here, as also #Psa 73:17 74:7 Jer 51:51 Eze 28:18|, because there were divers apartments in it, each of which was a sanctuary, or, which is all one, an holy place, as they are severally called. And yours emphatically, not mine, for I disown and abhor it, and all the services you do in it, because you have defiled it. I will not smell - Not own or accept them. Your sweet odours - Either of the incense, or of your sacrifices, which when offered with faith and obedience, are sweet and acceptable to me.
