New Defender's Study Bible Notes

26:34 land enjoy her sabbaths. There were approximately 490 years in Israel’s monarchy, from Saul to Zedekiah, followed by the 70 years of Babylonian captivity (Jeremiah 25:11,12). During all this period, they failed to observe God’s commanded Sabbatical and Jubilee years; hence, the Lord enforced the 70 rest years which were due His land.
