Leviticus 26.18 – Punish seven times more for impenitent sin

First, the Lord laid out before the Israelites the blessings for obeying Him (Leviticus 26.3–14).

Then, He laid out the consequences for disobedience (Leviticus 26.15–17). If they did not change as a result of the punishment that He listed, He said further,

“And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins” (Leviticus 26.18). 

He would complete another set of punishments against them, intensifying His efforts against them to repent.

What does He have to do to get our attention, whether ancient Israel then, or the modern church today, that we might repent?
