There are seven statements in the covenant God offers Abraham
in Genesis 12: 2-3 :
1. And I will make of thee a great nation,
2. and I will bless thee,
3. and make thy name great;
4. and thou shalt be a blessing:
5. And I will bless them that bless thee,
6. and curse him that curseth thee:
7. and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This is the first occurence in Torah of the Hebrew word barak, to bless and it is used five times in these two verses.
