Vultures came down on the bodies, but Abram drove them off.
When the sun was going down, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and fear and terror came over him. 113
The Lord said to him, "Your descendants will be strangers in a foreign land; they will be slaves there and will be treated cruelly for four hundred years. 214
But I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and when they leave that foreign land, they will take great wealth with them. 315
You yourself will live to a ripe old age, die in peace, and be buried.
It will be four generations before your descendants come back here, because I will not drive out the Amorites until they become so wicked that they must be punished."
When the sun had set and it was dark, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch suddenly appeared and passed between the pieces of the animals.
Then and there the Lord made a covenant with Abram. He said, "I promise to give your descendants all this land from the border of Egypt to the Euphrates River, 419
including the lands of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites,
the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
