    Isa. 1:18- The Lord is not the author of confusion - 1 Cor. 14:33. He wants us to 'reason' out His word, to use the brains He gave us. V. 3 - " ..... a great nation ..... "; that's Israel. God doesn't have to spell everything out for us.

    God told Abram that he would make a great nation out of him. This proved true in the formation of the Israelites.

    I don't see the word Israel in verse 3. I see the word ( I will bless them, that bless thee.)
    I believe God Was talking about Abraham and not Israel. which lead me to think that God was speaking of Jesus later on in the new testament
  • Pastor J.S.olu.Aina
    Re:Vizavis V.3. This is the only place where such was mentioned in the Bible. That plural must referred to those who might have enjoyed his blessings while single referred to Satan whom I think can never be pleased with such a good promise that permanently eluded him. Up till now, nobody has ever been recorded of such attempt.
