GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Abram was 99 years old, the LORD appeared to him. He said to Abram, "I am God Almighty. Live in my presence with integrity. 1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless.
2 I will give you my promise, and I will give you very many descendants." 2 I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers."
3 Immediately, Abram bowed with his face touching the ground, and again God spoke to him, 3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him,
4 "My promise is still with you. You will become the father of many nations. 4 "As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations.
5 So your name will no longer be Abram [Exalted Father], but Abraham [Father of Many] because I have made you a father of many nations. 5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.
6 I will give you many descendants. Many nations and kings will come from you. 6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.
