Bible: Genesis 22:15-20

22:15 The Lord’s angel called to Abraham a second time from heaven 22:16 and said, “‘I solemnly swear by my own name,’ 1  decrees the Lord, 2  ‘that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 22:17 I will indeed bless you, 3  and I will greatly multiply 4  your descendants 5  so that they will be as countless as the stars in the sky or the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession 6  of the strongholds 7  of their enemies. 22:18 Because you have obeyed me, 8  all the nations of the earth will pronounce blessings on one another 9  using the name of your descendants.’

22:19 Then Abraham returned to his servants, and they set out together 10  for Beer Sheba where Abraham stayed. 11
