And Jehovah had said to Abram, Go out of thy land, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, to the land that I will shew thee.
And I will make of thee a great nation, and bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
And Abram departed as Jehovah had said to him. And Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed out of Haran.
And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had acquired, and the souls that they had obtained a in Haran, and they went out to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
And Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, to the oak b of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
And Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land. And there he built an altar to Jehovah who had appeared to him.
And he removed thence towards the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, [having] Bethel toward the west, c and Ai toward the east; and there he built an altar to Jehovah, and called on the name of Jehovah.
And Abram moved onward, going on still toward the south.
And there was a famine in the land. And Abram went down to Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine was grievous in the land.
And it came to pass when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now, d I know that thou art a woman fair to look upon.
