Feb 2, 2016

וַיֵּרָא יְהֹוָה אֶל־אַבְרָם וַיֹּאמֶר לְזַרְעֲךָ אֶתֵּן אֶת־הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת וַיִּבֶן שָׁם מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהֹוָה הַנִּרְאֶה אֵלָיו׃

Hashem appeared to Avram and said, “I will assign this land to your offspring.” And he built a mizbayach there to Hashem who had appeared to him.

Genesis 12:7

קוּם הִתְהַלֵּךְ בָּאָרֶץ לְאָרְכָּהּ וּלְרָחְבָּהּ כִּי לְךָ אֶתְּנֶנָּה׃

Up, walk about the land, through its length and its breadth, for I give it to you.”

Genesis 13:17

“l’zarekha eten et ha’aretz ha-zot”
Unto thy seed will I give this land

“koom heet-ha-lekh ba’aretz”
Arise, walk through the land

“l’orkah oo-leh-rokhba”
in the length of it and in the breadth of it

“kee lekha etneh-nah”
for unto thee will I give it
