19 Abraham, ‘the fatheri of a multitude of nations’,
And entered into a covenant with Him:
And in trial he was found faithful.
And to exalt his seed ‘as the stars’;
And from the River to the ends of the earth’.

tAnd the blessing of all predecessors
23 Rested upon the head of Israelt;
wAnd He set him in tribes,
So as to be divided into twelvew.
