שלום

וְהֵבֵאתִי אֶתְכֶם אֶל הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נָשָׂאתִי אֶת יָדִי לָתֵת אֹתָהּ לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקֹב וְנָתַתִּי אֹתָהּ לָכֶם מוֹרָשָׁה אֲנִי יְהוָה.

Isn't it necessary to have a coordinating conjunction between every item in a list? I would have expected ו to be there right before לְיִצְחָק. Is it permissible to omit it?

אני מודה לכם מאוד

    No, ו' החיבור is necessary only before the last item in a list.
    Yes.

    For some reason, I've seen mistaken claims on Wikipedia that this isn't allowed in Biblical Hebrew, but only in Modern Hebrew. But the Bible is full of such examples.
