When Abram was ninety-nine years old, Yahweh appeared to Abram, and said to him, "I am God Almighty. Walk before me, and be blameless.
I will make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly."
Abram fell on his face. God talked with him, saying,
"As for me, behold, my covenant is with you. You will be the father of a multitude of nations.
Neither will your name any more be called Abram, but your name will be Abraham; for the father of a multitude of nations have I made you.
I will make you exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of you. Kings will come out of you.
