No longer will you be called Abrama; your name will be Abraham,b1 for I have made you a father of many nations.26
I will make you very fruitful;3 I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.47
I will establish my covenant56 as an everlasting covenant78 between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God9 and the God of your descendants after you.108
The whole land of Canaan,11 where you are now an alien,12 I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you;13 and I will be their God.14"
Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant,15 you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.1610
This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised.1711
You are to undergo circumcision,18 and it will be the sign of the covenant19 between me and you.
For the generations to come20 every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised,21 including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner--those who are not your offspring.
Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised.22 My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant.2314
Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised24 in the flesh, will be cut off from his people;25 he has broken my covenant.26"
God also said to Abraham, "As for Sarai27 your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah.28
