Your translation seems fine to me, the sentence is a bit hard to understand. The possidebit is a bit weird here - it's future active 3rd person singular so "he will inherit", what will he inherit? "terram", the earth, "per omnia", through or by the help of all.

All the other verbs are passive (with -atur at the end), but possidebit is active, so who is the subject?

I'm no longer fresh enough in Latin and would translate it as "the earth will be inherited by all", too, but it's an awkward sentence and actually reads "he will inherit the earth through all".
