2 The Lord appeared to him and said, "Do not go down to Egypt. Live in the land that I tell you about;
3 stay in this land as a foreigner, and I will be with you and bless you. For I will give all these lands to you and your offspring, and I will confirm the oath that I swore to your father Abraham.
4 I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky, I will give your offspring all these lands, and all the nations of the earth will be blesseda by your offspring,b
5 because Abraham listened to My voice and kept My mandate, My commands, My statutes, and My instructions."c
