Treasury of Scripture

That the land spew not you out also, when you defile it, as it spewed out the nations that were before you.

Leviticus 18:25

Jeremiah 9:19
For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.









(28) That the land spue not you out also.--Better, Lest the land vomit you out. By unnecessarily translating the same word differently into "vomiteth" in Leviticus 18:25, and "spue" here, as is done in the Authorised Version, the striking connection between the two verses is somewhat weakened.
