Page 3 - By Myself I swear, the Lord declares: Because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your favored one, 171 will bestow my blessing upon you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the sands on the seashore; and your descendants shall seize the gates of their foes. 18 All the nations of the earth shall bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed My command.
