CEB 2 I will make a covenant between us and I will give you many, many descendants." NRS 2 And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will make you exceedingly numerous." CEB 3 Abram fell on his face, and God said to him, NRS 3 Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him, CEB 4 "But me, my covenant is with you; you will be the ancestor of many nations. NRS 4 "As for me, this is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations. CEB 5 And because I have made you the ancestor of many nations, your name will no longer be Abram but Abraham. NRS 5 No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations. CEB 6 I will make you very fertile. I will produce nations from you, and kings will come from you. NRS 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. CEB 7 I will set up my covenant with you and your descendants after you in every generation as an enduring covenant. I will be your God and your descendants' God after you. NRS 7 I will establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you. CEB 8 I will give you and your descendants the land in which you are immigrants, the whole land of Canaan, as an enduring possession. And I will be their God." NRS 8 And I will give to you, and to your offspring after you, the land where you are now an alien, all the land of Canaan, for a perpetual holding; and I will be their God." CEB 9 God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants in every generation.

CEB 10 This is my covenant that you and your descendants must keep: Circumcise every male. NRS 10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised. CEB 11 You must circumcise the flesh of your foreskins, and it will be a symbol of the covenant between us. NRS 11 You shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you. CEB 12 On the eighth day after birth, every male in every generation must be circumcised, including those who are not your own children: those born in your household and those purchased with silver from foreigners. NRS 12 Throughout your generations every male among you shall be circumcised when he is eight days old, including the slave born in your house and the one bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring. CEB 13 Be sure you circumcise those born in your household and those purchased with your silver. Your flesh will embody my covenant as an enduring covenant. NRS 13 Both the slave born in your house and the one bought with your money must be circumcised. So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. CEB 14 Any uncircumcised male whose flesh of his foreskin remains uncircumcised will be cut off from his people. He has broken my covenant." NRS 14 Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant."

NRS 15 God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. CEB 16 I will bless her and even give you a son from her. I will bless her so that she will become nations, and kings of peoples will come from her." NRS 16 I will bless her, and moreover I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall give rise to nations; kings of peoples shall come from her."
