Then Abram fell to the ground,a and God spoke with him:
"As for Me, My covenant is with you, and you will become the father of many nations.b5
Your name will no longer be Abram,c but your name will be Abraham,d for I will make you the father of many nations.e6
I will make you extremely fruitful and will make nations and kings come from you.
I will keep My covenant between Me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, as an everlasting covenant to be your God and the [God] of your offspring after you.
And to you and your offspring after you I will give the land where you are residing-all the land of Canaan-as an eternal possession, and I will be their God."
God also said to Abraham, "As for you, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations are to keep My covenant.
This is My covenant, which you are to keep, between Me and you and your offspring after you: Every one of your males must be circumcised.
You must circumcise the flesh of your foreskin to serve as a sign of the covenant between Me and you.f12
Throughout your generations, every male among you at eight days old is to be circumcised. This includes a slave born in your house and one purchased with money from any foreigner. The one who is not your offspring,
a slave born in your house, as well as one purchased with money, must be circumcised. My covenant will be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant.
