001:015:001
After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision,
saying,
Fear not,
Abram:
I am thy shield,
and thy exceeding great reward.


001:015:002
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?


001:015:003
And Abram said,
Behold,
to me thou hast given no seed:
and,
lo,
one born in my house is mine heir.


001:015:004
And,
behold,
the word of the LORD came unto him,
saying,
This shall not be thine heir;
but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.


001:015:005
And he brought him forth abroad,
and said,
Look now toward heaven,
and tell the stars,
if thou be able to number them:
and he said unto him,
So shall thy seed be.


001:015:006
And he believed in the LORD;
and he counted it to him for righteousness.


001:015:007
And he said unto him,
I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees,
to give thee this land to inherit it.


001:015:008
And he said,
LORD God,
whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?


001:015:009
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.


001:015:010
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.


001:015:011
And when the fowls came down upon the carcases,
Abram drove them away.


001:015:012
And when the sun was going down,
a deep sleep fell upon Abram;
and,
lo,
an horror of great darkness fell upon him.


001:015:013
And he said unto Abram,
Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not their's,
and shall serve them;
and they shall afflict them four hundred years;


001:015:014
And also that nation,
whom they shall serve,
will I judge:
and afterward shall they come out with great substance.


001:015:015
And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace;
thou shalt be buried in a good old age.


001:015:016
But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again:
for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.


001:015:017
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.


001:015:018
In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram,
saying,
Unto thy seed have I given this land,
from the river of Egypt unto the great river,
the river Euphrates:


001:015:019
The Kenites,
and the Kenizzites,
and the Kadmonites,


001:015:020
And the Hittites,
and the Perizzites,
and the Rephaims,


001:015:021
And the Amorites,
and the Canaanites,
and the Girgashites,
and the Jebusites.
