Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 26:26

_ _ ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, etc. — The bread used in families is usually baked by women, and at home. But sometimes also, in times of scarcity, it is baked in public ovens for want of fuel; and the scarcity predicted here would be so great, that one oven would be sufficient to bake as much as ten women used in ordinary occasions to provide for family use; and even this scanty portion of bread would be distributed by weight (Ezekiel 4:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 26:14-39.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 26:26

When I have broken the staff of your bread — By sending a famine or scarcity of bread, which is the staff and support of man's present life. Ten women — That is, ten or many families, for the women took care for the bread and food of all the family. By weight — This is a sign and consequence both of a famine, and of the baking of the bread of several families together in one oven, wherein each family took care to weigh their bread, and to receive the same proportion which they put in.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Leviticus 26:26

[And] when I have broken the (n) staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one (o) oven, and they shall deliver [you] your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

(n) That is, the strength by which life is sustained, (Ezekiel 4:16, Ezekiel 5:16).

(o) One oven will be sufficient for ten families.
