Genesis 15:1-4 MSG

1 After all these things, this word of God came to Abram in a vision: "Don't be afraid, Abram. I'm your shield. Your reward will be grand!"
2 Abram said, "God, Master, what use are your gifts as long as I'm childless and Eliezer of Damascus is going to inherit everything?"
3 Abram continued, "See, you've given me no children, and now a mere house servant is going to get it all."
4 Then God's Message came: "Don't worry, he won't be your heir; a son from your body will be your heir."
