1 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a a, saying, b, Abram: I am thy c, and thy exceeding great reward.
2 And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the a of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, a born in my house is mine heir.
4 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.
5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and a the b, if thou be able to c them: and he said unto him, So shall thy d be.
6 a he b in the Lord; and he counted it to him for c.
7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to a it.
8 And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I a that I shall inherit it?
9 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.
10 And he took unto him all these, and a them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great a fell upon him.
13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a a in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall b them four hundred years;
14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they a out with great b.
15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good a age.
16 But in the a generation they shall come b again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet c.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that a between those pieces.
18 In the same day the Lord made a a with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this b, from c unto the great river, the river d:
19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
