I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you" Genesis 12:3. And I will bless them that bless thee,.... Not the priests only that should bless his children, the children of Israel, as the Targum of Jonathan, but all men of all nations, and of every age, that speak well of him, commend him for his faith and holiness, and tread in his steps, these are blessed with faithful Abraham, Galatians 3:7.
