RSV 1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, "Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great."

RSV 2 But Abram said, "O Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Elie'zer of Damascus?" NIV 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?" RSV 3 And Abram said, "Behold, thou hast given me no offspring; and a slave born in my house will be my heir." NIV 3 And Abram said, "You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir."
