In Parshas Bechukosai (Vayikra 26:34), the verse states:
אָז תִּרְצֶה הָאָרֶץ אֶת שַׁבְּתֹתֶיהָ כֹּל יְמֵי הָשַּׁמָּה וְאַתֶּם בְּאֶרֶץ אֹיְבֵיכֶם אָז תִּשְׁבַּת הָאָרֶץ וְהִרְצָת אֶת שַׁבְּתֹתֶיהָ
Then, the land will be appeased regarding its sabbaticals. During all the days that it remains desolate while you are in the land of your enemies, the Land will rest and thus appease its sabbaticals.
In what sense is the land appeased? Is the land angry that it has been denied its rest and worked too much? Does the land have emotions in some way?
(I am aware that Rashi understands the verse to mean that HaShem will be "appeased" regarding the land. However, I am looking for an explanation for the common translation that land itself is appeased.)
