After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in aa vision, saying, bFear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding cgreat reward.
2 And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall dcome forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and ftell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, eSo shall thy seed be. 6 And ghe believed in the LORD; and he hcounted it to him for righteousness. 7 And he said unto him, I am the LORD that ibrought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it. 8 And he said, Lord GOD, jwhereby shall I know that I shall inherit it? 9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. 10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not. 11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
12 And when the sun was going down, a kdeep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him. 13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that lthy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall mafflict them nfour hundred years; 14 And also othat nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried pin a good old age. 16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites qis not yet full.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed rhave I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: 19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, 20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, 21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
