Covenantal abrogation

When God says He will turn His face from those who abrogate His covenant He does not mean He will punish or seek retribution for improper behavior. What God is saying is that if people don't honor the covenantal exchange they will implicitly be driving God's presence out of the processes that define the political/economic order. The covenantal abrogation would ipso facto conceal God's face because people wouldn't be taking God's presence into consideration in their decision-making.
