I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curseth you–Genesis 12:3

Genesis 12:3

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Thee is Abram, who was not a Jew and was not circumcised at this time AND ISRAEL DID NOT EXIST AT THIS TIME. This is NOT referring to IsraelThis (Abram) is confirmed by Galatians 3:16. Richard Duke

Galatians 3:16

16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

CHRIST IS THE SEED OF ABRAHAM; NOT ISRAEL.  REPLACING ABRAM AND ABRAHAM WITH ISRAEL MEANS REPLACING ABRAHAM AND CUTTING OFF ABRAHAM’S SEED, WHICH IS CHRIST.  Richard Duke

Galatians 3:9-10

So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.  [Under the curse of what?  Going back under the law instead of grace. Galatians 3:1-2; and replaing Abraham with Israel. 3:7-9]

Galatians 3:

1O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.

He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.


NASB:

Genesis 12:3

And I will bless those who bless youAnd the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed

 

Galatians 3:16

16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one, “And to your seed,” that is, Christ.

Galatians 3:9-10

So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.

10 For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.”
