Abram’s Solution to the Strife
14:16 He retrieved all the stolen property. 1 He also brought back his nephew Lot and his possessions, as well as the women and the rest of 2 the people.
17:10 This is my requirement that you and your descendants after you must keep: 1 Every male among you must be circumcised. 2
23:9 if he will sell 1 me the cave of Machpelah that belongs to him; it is at the end of his field. Let him sell it to me publicly 2 for the full price, 3 so that I may own it as a burial site.”
26:4 I will multiply your descendants so they will be as numerous as the stars in the sky, and I will give them 1 all these lands. All the nations of the earth will pronounce blessings on one another using the name of your descendants. 2 26:5 All this will come to pass 3 because Abraham obeyed me 4 and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.” 5
