Genesis 15:1-6

GNT 1 After this, Abram had a vision and heard the Lord say to him, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I will shield you from danger and give you a great reward." NIV 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." GNT 2 But Abram answered, "Sovereign Lord, what good will your reward do me, since I have no children? My only heir is Eliezer 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?" GNT 3 You have given me no children, and one of my slaves will inherit my property." NIV 3 And Abram said, "You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir." GNT 4 Then he heard the Lord speaking to him again: "This slave Eliezer will not inherit your property; your own son will be your heir." NIV 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." GNT 5 The Lord took him outside and said, "Look at the sky and try to count the stars; you will have as many descendants as that." NIV 5 He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars--if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." GNT 6 Abram put his trust in the Lord, and because of this the Lord was pleased with him and accepted him. NIV 6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
