When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord came to him, and said, I am God, Ruler of all; go in my ways and be upright in all things,
And I will make an agreement between you and me, and your offspring will be greatly increased.
And Abram went down on his face on the earth, and the Lord God went on talking with him, and said,
As for me, my agreement is made with you, and you will be the father of nations without end.
No longer will your name be Abram, but Abraham, for I have made you the father of a number of nations.
I will make you very fertile, so that nations will come from you and kings will be your offspring.
