Is it not time to write my life's story? I am just as much out of the way as if I were dead, for I am absolutely other than the person whose story I have to tell. Physical continuity with my earlier self is no disadvantage. I could speak in the third person and not feel that I was masquerading. I can analyze my subject, I can reveal everything; for she , and not I , is my real heroine. My life I have still to live; her life ended when mine began. A generation is sometimes a more satisfactory unit for the study of humanity than a lifetime; and spiritual generations are as easy to demark as physical ones.

I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.

Genesis David Brickner sees the occupation of Palestine in and Jerusalem in as the fulfilment of the promises made to Abraham and the Patriarchs:. I believe the modern day state of Israel is a miracle of God and a fulfilment of Bible prophecy.
