“O offspring of his servant!
Children of Jacob!
His chosen ones!
He is Yahweh our God!
His judgments are over all the earth.
He is mindful of his covenant forever.
He is mindful of the word that he commanded,
For a thousand generations.
That is the covenant
That he made with Abraham.
He had a sworn promise to Isaac.
He confirmed it to Jacob as a statute.
He has an everlasting covenant with Israel.
‘To you I will give the land of Canaan.
It is as your portion for an inheritance.’”
The people of Israel are offspring of Abraham. They are the children of Jacob. They are the chosen ones. Yahweh is their God. He judges the whole earth. He has made a covenant forever that he does not forget so that it will last 1,000 generations. This is the covenant that he made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It was a promise to Isaac and a statute to Jacob. There would be an everlasting covenant with Israel as Jacob became Israel. The land of Canaan will be their inheritance.
