Genesis 15:1-6 NCV

1 After these things happened, the Lord spoke his word to Abram in a vision: "Abram, don't be afraid. I will defend you, and I will give you a great reward."
2 But Abram said, "Lord God, what can you give me? I have no son, so my slave Eliezer from Damascus will get everything I own after I die."
3 Abram said, "Look, you have given me no son, so a slave born in my house will inherit everything I have."
4 Then the Lord spoke his word to Abram: "He will not be the one to inherit what you have. You will have a son of your own who will inherit what you have."
5 Then God led Abram outside and said, "Look at the sky. There are so many stars you cannot count them. Your descendants also will be too many to count."
6 Abram believed the Lord. And the Lord accepted Abram's faith, and that faith made him right with God.
