Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Avram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Avram, and said to him, "I am El Shaddai. Walk before me, and be blameless. 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 make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." 2 I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers."
3 Avram fell on his face. God talked with him, saying, 3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him,
4 "As for me, behold, my covenant is with you. You will be the father of a multitude of nations. 4 "As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations.
5 Neither will your name any more be called Avram, but your name will be Avraham; for the father of a multitude of nations have I made you. 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 make you exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of you. Kings will come out of you. 6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.
