{Genesis 26:12} Then Isaac 3327 sowed 2232 z8799 in that x1931 land, 776 and received 4672 z8799 in the same x1931 year 8141 an hundredfold: 3967 8180 and the LORD 3068 blessed 1288 z8762 him.
sowed:
The author of the "History of the Piratical States of Barbary" observes (p. 44), that the Moors of that country are divided into tribes like the Arabians, and like them dwell in tents, formed into itinerant villages; that "these wanderers farm lands of the inhabitants of the towns, sow and cultivate them, paying their rent with the produce, such as fruits, corn, wax, etc. They are very skilful in choosing the most advantageous soils for every season, and very careful to avoid the Turkish troops, the violence of the one little suiting the simplicity of the other." It is natural to suppose, that Isaac possessed the like sagacity, when he sowed in the land of Gerar, and received that year an hundred-fold.

"[Then] shall the earth yield her increase; [and] God, [even] our own God, shall bless us." {Psa 67:6} + "There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and [they] of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth." {Psa 72:16} + "In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both [shall be] alike good." {Ecc 11:6} + "For the seed [shall be] prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these [things]." {Zch 8:12} + "But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold." {Mtt 13:8} + "But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth [it]; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." {Mtt 13:23} + "And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred." {Mrk 4:8} + "I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase." {1Co 3:6} + "Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for [your] food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) ... Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God." {2Co 9:10-11} + "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. ... For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." {Gal 6:7-8}
blessed:
"Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;" {Gen 26:3} + "That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou [art] now the blessed of the LORD." {Gen 26:29} + "And Abraham was old, [and] well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things." {Gen 24:1} + "And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses." {Gen 24:35} + "For [it was] little which thou hadst before I [came], and it is [now] increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?" {Gen 30:30} + "So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses." {Job 42:12}
