Genesis 17:1-8

Rotherham(i) 1 And it came to pass that, when Abram was ninety and nine years old, Yahweh appeared unto Abram, and said unto him, I, am GOD Almighty,—Walk, thou before me and become thou blameless: 2 That I may set my covenant betwixt me and thee, And may multiply thee, exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell on his face,—and God spake with him, saying: 4 As for me, lo! my covenant is with thee,—So shalt thou become—father of a multitude of nations; 5 And thy name shall no more be called Abram,—but thy name shall become Abraham, for father of a multitude of nations, have I appointed thee; 6 And I will make thee fruitful, exceedingly, and grant thee to be nations,—Yea kings, out of thee, shall come forth; 7 And I will confirm my covenant betwixt me and thee and thy seed after thee to their generations for an age-abiding covenant,—to become to thee a God, and to thy seed after thee; 8 And I will give to thee and to thy seed after thee the land of thy sojournings—all the land of Canaan, for an age-abiding possession—And I will be to them a God.
