to your descendants forever.

Genesis 26.3, Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless
you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands,
and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham.
Jacob:
Genesis 28.13, And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, “I am
the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the
land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants.”
Land Promised to A, I, & J, Personally
All:
De. 11.9, …the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give to
them and to their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey.

AS A POSSESSION, AND TO HIS OFFSPRING AFTER HIM.
