“I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.” (Genesis 22:17-18)

This man is reading the Bible atop Mount Gerizim, the biblical mountain where Abraham offered his son, Isaac, and where God delivered the promise above, blessing Abraham’s descendants, Israel, which we continue to see today. Shabbat shalom, friends.
