And this is what will happen: When you, on your part, will obey these directives, keeping and following them, God, on his part, will keep the covenant of loyal love that he made with your ancestors:
He will love you, he will bless you, he will increase you.
You'll be blessed beyond all other peoples: no sterility or barrenness in you or your animals.
