What the Bible Teaches
15. Then the Angel of the Lord called to
Abraham a second time out of heaven,
16. and said: "By Myself I have sworn,
says the Lord, because you have done this thing,
and have not withheld your son, your only son,
17. "in blessing I will bless you,
and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants
as the stars of the heaven and as the sand
which is on the seashore; and your descendants
shall possess the gate of their enemies.
18. "In your seed all the nations
of the earth shall be blessed,
because you have obeyed My voice.''
