Genesis 15:6-16

GW 6 Then Abram believed the LORD, and the LORD regarded that faith to be his approval of Abram. NIV 6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness. GW 7 Then the LORD said to him, "I am the LORD, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land so that you will take possession of it." NIV 7 He also said to him, “I am the LORD, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it.” GW 8 Abram asked, "Almighty LORD, how can I be certain that I will take possession of it?" NIV 8 But Abram said, “Sovereign LORD, how can I know that I will gain possession of it?” GW 9 He answered Abram, "Bring me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a mourning dove, and a pigeon." NIV 9 So the LORD said to him, “Bring me a heifer, a goat and a ram, each three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon.” GW 10 So Abram brought all these animals to him. He cut each of them in half and laid each half opposite the other. However, he did not cut the birds in half. NIV 10 Abram brought all these to him, cut them in two and arranged the halves opposite each other; the birds, however, he did not cut in half. GW 11 When birds of prey came down upon the carcasses, Abram drove them away. NIV 11 Then birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away. GW 12 As the sun was just about to set, a deep sleep--a dreadful, deep darkness--came over Abram. NIV 12 As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness came over him. GW 13 God said to Abram, "You can know for sure that your descendants will live in a land that is not their own, where they will be slaves, and they will be oppressed for 400 years. NIV 13 Then the LORD said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. GW 14 But I will punish the nation they serve, and after that they will come out with many possessions. NIV 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. GW 15 But you will die in peace and be buried at a very old age. NIV 15 You, however, will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. GW 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, because the sin of the Amorites will not have run its course until then." NIV 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.”
