Then the LORD brought Abram outside beneath the night sky and told him, "Look up into the heavens and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that -- too many to count!"
And Abram believed the LORD, and the LORD declared him righteous because of his faith.
Then the LORD told him, "I am the LORD who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land."
