1 After these events, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield; your reward will be very great. 1 After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward."
2 But Abram said, "Lord God , what can You give me, since I am childless and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?" 2 But Abram said, "O Sovereign LORD, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?"
3 Abram continued, "Look, You have given me no offspring, so a slave born in my house will be my heir." 3 And Abram said, "You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir."
4 Now the word of the Lord came to him: "This one will not be your heir; instead, one who comes from your own body will be your heir." 4 Then the word of the LORD came to him: "This man will not be your heir, but a son coming from your own body will be your heir."
