GEN 15:1 After these things the word of Yahweh came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Don't be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward."
GEN 15:2 Abram said, "Lord Yahweh, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and he who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?"
GEN 15:3 Abram said, "Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, behold, one born in my house is my heir."
GEN 15:4 Behold, the word of Yahweh came to him, saying, "This man will not be your heir, but he who will come forth out of your own body will be your heir."
GEN 15:5 Yahweh brought him outside, and said, "Look now toward the sky, and count the stars, if you are able to count them." He said to Abram, "So shall your seed be."
GEN 15:6 He believed in Yahweh; and he reckoned it to him for righteousness.
GEN 15:7 He said to him, "I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it."
GEN 15:8 He said, "Lord Yahweh, how will I know that I will inherit it?"
GEN 15:9 He said to him, "Take me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtle-dove, and a young pigeon."
GEN 15:10 He took him all these, and divided them in the middle, and laid each half opposite the other; but he didn't divide the birds.
GEN 15:11 The birds of prey came down on the carcasses, and Abram drove them away.
GEN 15:12 When the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. Now terror and great darkness fell on him.
GEN 15:13 He said to Abram, "Know for sure that your seed will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years.
GEN 15:14 I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great substance.
GEN 15:15 But you will go to your fathers in peace. You will be buried in a good old age.
GEN 15:16 In the fourth generation they will come here again, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full."
GEN 15:17 It came to pass that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold, a smoking furnace, and a flaming torch passed between these pieces.
GEN 15:18 In that day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram, saying, "To your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:
GEN 15:19 the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites,
GEN 15:20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
GEN 15:21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
