2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you 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."
God made a covenant with Abraham to bless all the families of the earth through his
Seed, who is Jesus Christ. All the families of the earth mean Adam and Eve and all of their descendants. Chapter 7 'God's Purpose for Israel' gives a detailed explanation of these verses, and explains how and when God will fulfil His promise to bless all the families of the earth.
