After these things the word of Jehovah came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram; I am thy shield, thy exceeding great reward.
And Abram said, Lord a Jehovah, what wilt thou give me? seeing I go b childless, and the steward c of my house is this Eliezer d of Damascus.
And Abram said, Lo, to me thou hast given no seed, and behold, a son of my house e will be mine heir.
And behold, the word of Jehovah [came] to him, saying, This shall not be thine heir, but he that will come forth out of thy body f shall be thine heir.
And he led him out, and said, Look now toward the heavens, and number the stars, if thou be able to number them. And he said to him, So shall thy seed be!
And he believed Jehovah; and he reckoned it to him [as] g righteousness.
