1 H310 After H428 these H1697 things H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H1961 came H87 to Abram H4236 in a vision, H559 saying, H3372 Fear H87 not, Abram: H4043 I am your shield, H3966 and your exceeding H7235 great H7939 reward.
2 H87 And Abram H559 said, H136 LORD H3069 God, H4100 what H5414 will you give H1980 me, seeing I go H6185 childless, H1121 and the steward H4943 H1004 of my house H1931 is this H461 Eliezer H1834 of Damascus?
3 H87 And Abram H559 said, H2005 Behold, H5414 to me you have given H3808 no H2233 seed: H2009 and, see, H1121 one born H1004 in my house H3423 is my heir.
4 H2009 And, behold, H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H559 came to him, saying, H2088 This H3423 shall not be your heir; H3318 but he that shall come H3318 forth H4578 out of your own bowels H3423 shall be your heir.
5 H3318 And he brought H3318 him forth H2351 abroad, H559 and said, H5027 Look H4994 now H8064 toward heaven, H5608 and tell H3556 the stars, H518 if H3201 you be able H5608 to number H559 them: and he said H3541 to him, So H2233 shall your seed be.
7 H559 And he said H3068 to him, I am the LORD H3318 that brought H218 you out of Ur H3778 of the Chaldees, H5414 to give H2063 you this H776 land H3423 to inherit it.
8 H559 And he said, H136 LORD H3069 God, H4100 whereby H3045 shall I know H3423 that I shall inherit it?
9 H559 And he said H3947 to him, Take H5697 me an heifer H8027 of three H8027 years H8027 old, H5795 and a she goat H8027 of three H8027 years H8027 old, H352 and a ram H8027 of three H8027 years H8027 old, H8449 and a turtledove, H1469 and a young H1469 pigeon.
10 H3947 And he took H3605 to him all H428 these, H1334 and divided H8432 them in the middle, H5414 and laid H376 each H1335 piece H7125 one against H7453 another: H6833 but the birds H1334 divided he not.
11 H5861 And when the fowls H3381 came H3381 down H6297 on the carcasses, H87 Abram H5380 drove them away.
12 H1961 And when H8121 the sun H935 was going H935 down, H8639 a deep H8639 sleep H5307 fell H87 on Abram; H2009 and, see, H367 an horror H1419 of great H2825 darkness H5307 fell on him.
13 H559 And he said H87 to Abram, H3045 Know H3045 of a surety H2233 that your seed H1616 shall be a stranger H776 in a land H1992 that is not their’s, H5647 and shall serve H6031 them; and they shall afflict H702 them four H3967 hundred H8141 years;
14 H1571 And also H1471 that nation, H834 whom H5647 they shall serve, H1777 will I judge: H310 and afterward H3651 H3318 shall they come H1419 out with great H7399 substance.
15 H935 And you shall go H1 to your fathers H7965 in peace; H6912 you shall be buried H2896 in a good H7872 old H7872 age.
16 H7243 But in the fourth H1755 generation H7725 they shall come H2008 here H7725 again: H5771 for the iniquity H567 of the Amorites H5704 is not yet H2008 H8003 full.
17 H1961 And it came H1961 to pass, that, when H8121 the sun H935 went H935 down, H5939 and it was dark, H2009 behold H6227 a smoking H8574 furnace, H784 and a burning H3940 lamp H5674 that passed H996 between H428 those H1506 pieces.
18 H1931 In the same H3117 day H3068 the LORD H3772 made H1285 a covenant H87 with Abram, H559 saying, H2233 To your seed H5414 have I given H2063 this H776 land, H5104 from the river H4714 of Egypt H1419 to the great H5104 river, H5104 the river H6578 Euphrates:
