Yahweh’s Covenant with Abram

1 After these things the word of Yahweh camea to Abram in a vision, saying: "Do not be afraid, Abram; I [am] your shield, [and] your reward [shall be] very great." 2 Thenb Abram said, "O Yahweh, my Lord, what will you give me? {I continue to be}c childless, and {my heir}d is Eliezer of Damascus." 3 And Abram said, "Look, you have not given me a descendant, and here, {a member of my household}e [is] {my heir}."f 4 And behold, the word of Yahweh [came] to him saying, "This [person] will not {be your heir},g but {your own son will be your heir}."h 5 And he brought him outside and said, "Look toward the heavens and count the stars if you are able to count them." And he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." 6 And he believed in Yahweh, and he reckoned it to him [as] righteousness. 7 And he said to him, "I [am] Yahweh, who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans to give this land to you, to possess it."
