This prayer he made, or this blessing he pronounced on them, to show that he did not envy their increase, nor was any ways uneasy at it, but rejoiced in it, though he gave it as a reason of his not being able to govern them alone:
and bless you, as he hath promised you:
with all kind of blessings, as he had often promised their fathers.
