1 H310 After H1697 these things H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H1961 [H8804] came H87 to Abram H4236 in a vision H559 [H8800] , saying H3372 [H8799] , Fear H87 not, Abram H4043 : I am thy shield H3966 , and thy exceeding H7235 [H8687] great H7939 reward.
2 H87 And Abram H559 [H8799] said H136 , LORD H3069 God H5414 [H8799] , what wilt thou give H1980 [H8802] me, seeing I go H6185 childless H1121 H4943 , and the heir H1004 of my house H1931 is this H461 Eliezer H1834 of Damascus?
3 H87 And Abram H559 [H8799] said H5414 [H8804] , Behold, to me thou hast given H3808 no H2233 seed H1121 : and, lo, one born H1004 in my house H3423 [H8802] is my heir.
4 H1697 And, behold, the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] came to him, saying H3423 [H8799] , This shall not be thy heir H3318 [H8799] ; but he that shall come forth H4578 out of thy own loins H3423 [H8799] shall be thy heir.
5 H3318 [H8686] And he brought him forth H2351 abroad H559 [H8799] , and said H5027 [H8685] , Look H8064 now toward heaven H5608 [H8798] , and count H3556 the stars H3201 [H8799] , if thou art able H5608 [H8800] to number H559 [H8799] them: and he said H3541 to him, So H2233 shall thy seed be.
6 H539 [H8689] And he believed H3068 in the LORD H2803 [H8799] ; and he counted H6666 it to him for righteousness.
7 H559 [H8799] And he said H3068 to him, I am the LORD H3318 [H8689] that brought thee out H218 of Ur H3778 of the Chaldees H5414 [H8800] , to give H776 thee this land H3423 [H8800] to inherit it.
8 H559 [H8799] And he said H136 , Lord H3069 GOD H4100 , by what H3045 [H8799] shall I know H3423 [H8799] that I shall inherit it?
9 H559 [H8799] And he said H3947 [H8798] to him, Take H5697 me an heifer H8027 [H8794] of three years old H5795 , and a female goat H8027 [H8794] of three years old H352 , and a ram H8027 [H8794] of three years old H8449 , and a turtledove H1469 , and a young pigeon.
10 H3947 [H8799] And he took H1334 [H8762] to him all these, and divided H8432 them in the midst H5414 [H8799] , and laid H376 each H1335 piece H7125 [H8800] one against H7453 another H6833 : but the birds H1334 [H8804] he did not divide.
11 H5861 And when the fowls H3381 [H8799] came down H6297 upon the carcases H87 , Abram H5380 [H8686] drove them away.
12 H8121 And when the sun H935 [H8800] was going down H8639 , a deep sleep H5307 [H8804] fell H87 upon Abram H367 ; and, lo, an horror H1419 of great H2825 darkness H5307 [H8802] fell upon him.
13 H559 [H8799] And he said H87 to Abram H3045 [H8799] , Know H3045 [H8800] certainly H2233 that thy seed H1616 shall be a stranger H776 in a land H5647 [H8804] that is not theirs, and shall serve H6031 [H8765] them; and they shall afflict H702 them four H3967 hundred H8141 years;
14 H1471 And also that nation H5647 [H8799] , which they shall serve H1777 [H8802] , will I judge H310 H3651 : and afterward H3318 [H8799] shall they come out H1419 with great H7399 substance.
15 H935 [H8799] And thou shalt go H1 to thy fathers H7965 in peace H6912 [H8735] ; thou shalt be buried H2896 in a good H7872 old age.
16 H7243 But in the fourth H1755 generation H2008 they shall come here H7725 [H8799] again H5771 : for the iniquity H567 of the Amorites H2008 is not yet H8003 full.
17 H8121 And it came to pass, that, when the sun H935 [H8804] had gone down H5939 , and it was dark H6227 , behold a smoking H8574 furnace H784 , and a burning H3940 lamp H5674 [H8804] that passed H996 between H1506 those pieces.
18 H1931 In that same H3117 day H3068 the LORD H3772 [H8804] made H1285 a covenant H87 with Abram H559 [H8800] , saying H2233 , To thy seed H5414 [H8804] have I given H776 this land H5104 , from the river H4714 of Egypt H1419 to the great H5104 river H5104 , the river H6578 Euphrates:
