And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. Isaiah 8:17

Seven Terms of the Covenant : Genesis 12


















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.
