||New International Version (NIV)
16 The promises were given to Abraham. They were also given to his seed. Scripture does not say, "and to seeds." That means many people. It says, "and to your seed."#1(Genesis 12:7; 13:15; 24:7)#2 That means one person. And that one person is Christ.
16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say "and to seeds," meaning many people, but "and to your seed," meaning one person, who is Christ.
