Genesis 15


15:1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a
 vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I [am] thy shield, [and] thy
 exceeding great reward.
15:2 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?
15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and
 lo, one born in my house is my heir.
15:4 And behold, the word of the LORD [came] to him, saying,
 This shall not be thy heir; but he that shall come forth out of
 thy own bowels shall be thy heir.
15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now towards
 heaven, and tell the stars, if thou art able to number them:
 and he said to him, So shall thy seed be.
15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for
 righteousness.
15:7 And he said to him, I [am] the LORD that brought thee out
 of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
15:8 And he said, Lord God, by what shall I know that I shall
 inherit it?
15:9 And he said to him, Take me a heifer of three years old,
 and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of three years
 old, and a turtle-dove, and a young pigeon.
15:10 And he took to him all these, and divided them in the
 midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds
 he did not divide.
15:11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram
 drove them away.
15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon
 Abram; and lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.
15:13 And he said to Abram, Know certainly that thy seed shall
 be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve
 them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
15:14 And also that nation which they shall serve, will I judge:
 and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15:15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be
 buried in a good old age.
15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again:
 for the iniquity of the Amorites [is] not yet full.
15:17 And it came to pass, that when the sun had gone down, and
 it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that
 passed between those pieces.
15:18 In that same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram,
 saying, To thy seed have I given this land, from the river of
 Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:
15:19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
15:20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
15:21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites,
 and the Jebusites.
