increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.
New Defender's Study Bible Notes
12:23 increaseth the nations. This verse may well refer to the Table of Nations (Genesis 10), when suddenly the one nation at Babel was changed into about seventy nations.
12:23 enlargeth the nations. Japheth’s descendants were to be “enlarged” (Genesis 9:27).
