Genesis 15:1-7 CJB

1 Some time later the word of ADONAI came to Avram in a vision: "Don't be afraid, Avram. I am your protector; your reward will be very great."
2 Avram replied, "ADONAI, God, what good will your gifts be to me if I continue childless; and Eli'ezer from Dammesek inherits my possessions?
3 You haven't given me a child," Avram continued, "so someone born in my house will be my heir."
4 But the word of ADONAI came to him: "This man will not be your heir. No, your heir will be a child from your own body."
5 Then he brought him outside and said, "Look up at the sky, and count the stars - if you can count them! Your descendants will be that many!"
6 He believed in ADONAI, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
7 Then he said to him, "I am ADONAI, who brought you out from Ur-Kasdim to give you this land as your possession."
