Genesis 17:1-7

1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, "I am the Almighty God. Obey me and always do what is right.
2 I will make my covenant with you and give you many descendants."
3 Abram bowed down with his face touching the ground, and God said,
4 "I make this covenant with you: I promise that you will be the ancestor of many nations.
5 Your name will no longer be Abram, but Abraham, because I am making you the ancestor of many nations.
6 I will give you many descendants, and some of them will be kings. You will have so many descendants that they will become nations.
7 "I will keep my promise to you and to your descendants in future generations as an everlasting covenant. I will be your God and the God of your descendants.
