Then the LORD told Abram, "Leave your country, your relatives, and your father's house, and go to the land that I will show you.
I will cause you to become the father of a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and I will make you a blessing to others.
I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you."
So Abram departed as the LORD had instructed him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.
