Chapter 2: Legend. <I>Covenant with the Fathers (Genesis 12-50) </I>

He is Yahweh our God;

his judgments are in all the earth

He is mindful of his covenant for ever,

of the word that he commanded, for a thousand

generations,

the covenant which he made with Abraham,

his sworn promise to Isaac,

which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,

to Israel as an everlasting covenant. . . .

Ps. 105:7-10
