Yahweh, the God of your fathers, be adding unto you the like of you, a thousand times, - and bless you, as he hath spoken unto you!
That I will, richly bless, thee, and, abundantly multiply, thy seed, as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the lip of the sea, - that thy seed may take possession of the gate of his foes:
Have remembrance of Abraham, of Isaac and of Israel thy servants to whom thou didst swear by thyself, and didst speak unto them saying, I will multiply your seed, as the stars of the heavens, - and, all this land of which I have spoken, will I give to your seed, and they shall inherit it to times age-abiding.
Then said Joab unto the king - Yea, Yahweh thy God add unto the people, how many soever they be, a hundredfold, and suffer the eyes of my lord the king, to see it, - but, my lord the king, wherefore doth he find pleasure in this thing?
And he brought him forth abroad and said - Look steadfastly. I pray thee towards the heavens, and number the stars, if thou be able to number, them, And he said to him, Thus, shall be thy seed.
and will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heavens, and will give to thy seed, all these lands, - And all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves in thy seed:
From the GOD of thy father who doth help thee And GOD Almighty who doth bless thee, Blessings of the heavens, above, Blessings of the abyss, couching beneath, - Blessings of breasts and womb:
Thus shall they put my name upon the sons of Israel, - and, I, myself, will bless them.
And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them, - Thou shalt not curse the people, For blessed, he is.
Then said Joab, May Yahweh add unto his people, as many as they are, a hundred times, but are they not, my lord O king, all of them my lord's, as servants? wherefore should my lord seek this? wherefore should it become guilt to Israel?
