12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.
The Call of Abram
12 The Lord had said to Abram, â€œGo from your country, your people and your fatherâ€™s household to the land I will show you.
2 â€œI will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.[a] 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.â€[b]
