God's Covenant with Abram

1After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am your shield, and your exceeding great reward. 2And Abram said, LORD God, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? 3And Abram said, Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, see, one born in my house is my heir. 4And, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, saying, This shall not be your heir; but he that shall come forth out of your own bowels shall be your heir. 5And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if you be able to number them: and he said to him, So shall your seed be. 6And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. 7And he said to him, I am the LORD that brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.
