And after he began to be ninety and nine years old, the Lord appeared to him: and said unto him: I am the Almighty God: walk before me, and be perfect.
And I will make my covenant between me and thee: and I will multiply thee exceedingly.
Abram fell flat on his face.
And God said to him: I am, and my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
Neither shall thy name be called any more Abram: but thou shalt be called Abraham: because I have made thee a father of many nations.
And I will make thee increase exceedingly, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and between thy seed after thee in their generations, by a perpetual covenant: to be a God to thee, and to thy seed after thee.
