Abram fell facedown,1 and God said to him,
"As for me, this is my covenant with you:2 You will be the father of many nations.35
No longer will you be called Abrama; your name will be Abraham,b4 for I have made you a father of many nations.56
I will make you very fruitful;6 I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.77
I will establish my covenant89 as an everlasting covenant1011 between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God12 and the God of your descendants after you.138
The whole land of Canaan,14 where you are now an alien,15 I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you;16 and I will be their God.17"
Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant,18 you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.1910
This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised.2011
You are to undergo circumcision,21 and it will be the sign of the covenant22 between me and you.
For the generations to come23 every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised,24 including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner--those who are not your offspring.
Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised.25 My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant.26
