Land and seed

Land and seed are the two basic ingredients of Avram's blessing from God. 
The Lord promises Avram land and seed as a way to start fresh so as to build a new society dedicated to principles that would be blessings for those who bless them and accursed for those who curse them. 
That society would find its highest expression in the laws of sheviit and shemitta, which laws detail how the land and seed need to be apportioned to greatest advantage.
