God: I Know Him

Genesis 18:16-19
And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

That's just an amazing statement: I know him!

The LORD knows Abraham and that Abraham will keep the the way of the LORD.

Can you imagine God saying that about you: God knows you and he knows you will follow Him?

This is really another (if not the original) reference to righteousness and justice. Strong's number for righteousness is hard to forget: 6666, and it's that number on the word justice here, and then the Hebrew word for justice on the word judgment.
