25 eYou are the sons of the prophets and of fthe covenant that God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, gAnd in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 26 hGod, ihaving raised up his servant, sent him to you first, jto bless you kby turning every one of you from your wickedness.
