Bible: Genesis 22:16-18

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.’
