Leviticus 26:13

Hebrew Bible

11 “‘I will put my tabernacle in your midst, and I will not abhor you. 12 I will walk among you, and I will be your God, and you will be my people. 13 I am the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, from being their slaves, and I broke the bars of your yoke and caused you to walk upright. 14 “‘If, however, you do not obey me and keep all these commandments— 15 if you reject my statutes and abhor my regulations so that you do not keep all my commandments and you break my covenant—

Jeremiah 28:10

Hebrew Bible

8 From earliest times, the prophets who preceded you and me invariably prophesied war, disaster, and plagues against many countries and great kingdoms. 9 So if a prophet prophesied peace and prosperity, it was only known that the Lord truly sent him when what he prophesied came true.” 10 The prophet Hananiah then took the yoke off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck and broke it. 11 Then he spoke up in the presence of all the people. “The Lord says, ‘In the same way I will break the yoke of servitude of all the nations to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon before two years are over.’” After he heard this, the prophet Jeremiah departed and went on his way. 12 But shortly after the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck, the Lord’s message came to Jeremiah.

"... Leviticus 26:13 ... Probably the equivalent of the earlier tradition as reflected in 4QLXXLeva and LXXmss was adapted in the majority manuscript tradition of the LXX to the regular equivalent of the LXX ... The earlier translation does not constitute a precise representation of the Masoretic text. The two translations have in common the understanding that is a singular form, probably reflecting a reading ... This understanding, although deviating from Ezekiel 34:27, may be supported by such verses as Jeremiah 28:10, 12 ..."
