The Abrahamic Covenant

1 After these events, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield; your reward will be very great. 2 But Abram said, "Lord God , what can You give me, since I am childless and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?"a 3 Abram continued, "Look, You have given me no offspring, so a slave born inb my house will be my heir." 4 Now the word of the Lord came to him: "This one will not be your heir; instead, one who comes from your own bodyc will be your heir." 5 He took him outside and said, "Look at the sky and count the stars, if you are able to count them." Then He said to him, "Your offspring will be that [numerous]." 6 Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness.d 7 He also said to him, "I am the Lord who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess."e
