“The God (A)before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked,
    the God who has been my shepherd all my life long to this day,
16 (B)the angel who has (C)redeemed me from all evil, bless the boys;
    and in them let (D)my name be carried on, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac;
    and let them (E)grow into a multitude[a] in the midst of the earth.”
