shall be a blessing.

3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

These verses give the main elements of the Abrahamic Covenant. God has put a tremendous importance on this covenant. He affirmed, re-affirmed and then renewed the covenant with Isaac and Jacob. (Genesis 13:14-17, Genesis 15:1-21, Genesis 17:111, Genesis 22:15-19, Genesis 26:2-5, Genesis 28:13-17)

The Abrahamic Covenant contains three important parts:

firstly an unconditional part, 'I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing';

followed by a conditional part, 'I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you';

followed by an unconditional part, 'And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed'.

We see that the unconditional Abrahamic Covenant has a conditional part within it. However, this in no way takes away from God's unconditional parts of the Abrahamic Covenant. We will comment on each part of the covenant later in this chapter.

When God promised Abraham that He would make him a great nation, Abraham was 75 years old and childless. For Abraham to become a great nation, he would have to have multitudes of descendants and land. God promised him both of these.
