God's Covenant with Abram

1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: 1"Fear not, Abram, I am 2your shield; your reward shall be very great."
2 But Abram said, "O Lord GOD, what will you give me, for I continuea childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?"
3 And Abram said, "Behold, you have given me no offspring, and 3a member of my household will be my heir."
4 And behold, the word of the LORD came to him: "This man shall not be your heir; 4your very own sonb shall be your heir."
