Luke 1:72-75

72 To show mercy toward our fathers,

And to remember His holy covenant,

73 The oath which He swore to Abraham our father,

74 To grant us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies,

Might serve Him without fear,

75 In holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.

“ The Abrahamic Covenant, which God made to the fathers of the nation of Israel, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a foundational element of biblical interpretation. A correct understanding of it is essential to properly comprehend all of the redemptive history. In contrast to the Davidic covenant, which was universal in scope, the Abrahamic Covenant is a national, promising blessings to Israel (though Gentiles can enter into those blessings through faith.)

The Abrahamic Covenant is preeminently, a covenant of mercy, revealing that God is gracious and compassionate to undeserving people.” Dr John MacArthur.
