“Establish,” here, would be more understandable had our translators used the word “continue” in place of “establish.”
You see, the Abrahamic covenant was already established over four hundred years earlier with Father Abraham. Then it was reconfirmed with his son Isaac. Then it was reconfirmed with his grandson Jacob. Each reconfirmation just continued the unbroken force of it. It did not, however, establish it.
My point here is this. Those people with whom He reconfirmed or continued the Abrahamic covenant in Deuteronomy 8 (over four hundred years after He initially made it with Father Abraham) are simply the seed of Abraham who fell heir to the provisions of the covenant. One of these provisions is the supernatural power to supernaturally obtain wealth.
You are just as much a seed of Abraham as Isaac or Jacob. Yes, these three were partakers of the promise of wealth in the Abrahamic covenant by birth. We Gentile Christians are partakers of the wealth promise by grafting. Paul taught us about the grafting.
Rom 11:17 17And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; (KJV)
Rom 11:24 24For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? (KJV)
We Gentile Christians are the wild branches grafted into the olive tree so that we can equally partake with the physical seed of Abraham in the covenant promise of wealth.
As such, by grafting, we Gentile Christians are entitled to the same covenant provision of wealth as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the group in Deuteronomy 8.
Notice also that the wealth provision in the covenant isn’t bound by time. Whether four hundred years or four thousand years later makes no difference. The Abrahamic wealth provision is timeless since this covenant is a forever covenant.
A complete understanding of our covenant rights to Abrahamic wealth enables us to see that God gave this wonderful wealth provision in His forever covenant to us Gentile Christians also. God also establishes the Abrahamic covenant with us by giving us the same power to get wealth supernaturally.
