And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.
but the Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them.
The LORD your God has increased your numbers so that today you are as numerous as the stars in the sky.
You will be blessed more than any other people; none of your men or women will be childless, nor will any of your livestock be without young.
