Chapter 31

(31.1) So let us stick with His blessing, and consider what are the ways of blessing. Let us recall the things that have been from the beginning.

(31.2) For what reason was our father Abraham blessed? Was it not because he did righteousness and truth through faith?

(31.3) Isaac, with confidence, knowing the future, was gladly brought forward as a sacrifice.

(31.4) Jacob, with humble-mindedness, left his land because of his brother, and went to Laban, and slaved. And to him was given the scepter of the twelve (tribes) of Israel.
