After these things the word of the LORD came1 unto Abram in a vision, saying,2 Fear4 not, Abram: I [am] thy shield, [and] thy exceeding great53 reward.
And Abram said,4 Lord GOD, what wilt thou give4 me, seeing I go6 childless, and the steward 4943 of my house [is] this Eliezer of Damascus?
And Abram said,4 Behold, to me thou hast given1 no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.6
And, behold, the word of the LORD [came] unto him, saying,2 This shall not be thine heir;4 but he that shall come forth4 out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.4
And he brought him forth55 abroad, and said,4 Look54 now toward heaven, and tell3 the stars, if thou be able4 to number2 them: and he said4 unto him, So shall thy seed be.
And he believed52 in the LORD; and he counted4 it to him for righteousness.
And he said4 unto him, I [am] the LORD that brought thee out52 of Ur of the Chaldees, to give2 thee this land to inherit2 it.
And he said,4 Lord GOD, whereby shall I know4 that I shall inherit4 it?
And he said4 unto him, Take3 me an heifer of three years old,30 and a she goat of three years old,30 and a ram of three years old,30 and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
And he took4 unto him all these, and divided17 them in the midst, and laid4 each piece one against2 another: but the birds divided1 he not.
And when the fowls came down4 upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.55
And when the sun was going down,2 a deep sleep fell1 upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell6 upon him.
And he said4 unto Abram, Know4 of a surety2 that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve1 them; and they shall afflict14 them four hundred years;
And also that nation, whom they shall serve,4 will I judge:6 and afterward 3651 shall they come out4 with great substance.
And thou shalt go4 to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried11 in a good old age.
But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again:4 for the iniquity of the Amorites [is] not yet full.
And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down,1 and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed1 between those pieces.
In the same day the LORD made1 a covenant with Abram, saying,2 Unto thy seed have I given1 this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
