Abram traveled through the land1 as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh2 at Shechem.3 At that time the Canaanites4 were in the land.
The LORD appeared to Abram5 and said, "To your offspringa I will give this land.6"7 So he built an altar there to the LORD,8 who had appeared to him.
From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel9 and pitched his tent,10 with Bethel on the west and Ai11 on the east. There he built an altar to the LORD and called on the name of the LORD.129
Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.13
