Jehovah appeared to Jacob and told him, “Don’t go to Egypt. Do as I say and stay here in this land. If you do, I will be with you and bless you, and I will give all this land to you and to your descendants, just as I promised Abraham your father. And I will cause your descendants to become as numerous as the stars! And I will give them all of these lands; and they shall be a blessing to all the nations of the earth. I will do this because Abraham obeyed my commandments and laws.” So Isaac stayed in Gerar. And when the men there asked him about Rebekah, he said, “She is my sister!” For he feared for his life if he told them she was his wife; he was afraid they would kill him to get her, for she was very attractive. But sometime later, King Abimelech, king of the Philistines, looked out of a window and saw Isaac and Rebekah making love. Abimelech called for Isaac and exclaimed, “She is your wife! Why did you say she is your sister?” “Because I was afraid I would be murdered,” Isaac replied. “I thought someone would kill me to get her from me.” “How could you treat us this way?” Abimelech exclaimed. “Someone might carelessly have raped her, and we would be doomed.” Then Abimelech made a public proclamation: “Anyone harming this man or his wife shall die.”FRIENDS, JACOB AND ESAU WERE ABRAHAM'S GRANDCHILDREN. GOD CONTINUED TO BLESS ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN AND THEIR GENERATIONS THEREAFTER UNTIL NOW. GOD PROMISED THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BE BLESSED THROUGH THE NATION OF ISRAEL. Genesis 28:14 For you will have descendants as many as dust! They will cover the land from east to west and from north to south; and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants.
