God spares Isaac and identifies Abraham as one most worthy of conveying God’s
will to future generations
God decides to enter into a covenant (enter into contractual, legally binding
relationship where each side has certain obligations to fulfill) with Abraham
God will keep Abrahams family in his favor, however Abraham and his
descendants are obligated with their commitments to venerate with only one God,
follow his directives
