When Abraham arrived in Canaan, he was still unsure that it was the land that God promised to become his own. Yet, Abraham was filled with great joy upon setting foot to this land. He even noticed that a number of people were devoted to cultivating the land and making it richer. Thus, he prayed that this land, even if only a portion of it, would soon become his own.

It was right at the moment when God told Abraham that this land was his when he began rejoicing and thanking the Lord for his blessings. Overwhelmed with happiness, Abraham decided to set an altar to show his reverence and gratitude to God. He also raised a few other altars in some places including Hebron and Ai, with the hopes that these places of worship would bring good tidings to the people of each land.

As Abraham lived in this new land, he was able to live in harmony with himself and the people around him. He continued to become a blessing to others, and God continued to reward him for his great love and trust to his commands.
