I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”  2 Abram said, “Lord Yahweh, what will you give me, since I go childless, and he who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?”  3 Abram said, “Behold, to me you have given no children: and, behold, one born in my house is my heir.”  4 Behold, Yahweh’s word came to him, saying, “This man will not be your heir, but he who will come out of your own body will be your heir.”  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 will your offspring be.”  6 He believed in Yahweh, who credited it to him for righteousness.  7 He said to Abram, “I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.”

God talked with him, saying,  4 “As for me, behold, my covenant is with you. You will be the father of a multitude of nations.  5 Your name will no more be called Abram, but your name will be Abraham; for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.  6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you. Kings will come out of you.  7 I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God to you and to your offspring after you.  8 I will give to you, and to your offspring after you, the land where you are traveling, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession.
