15:1 After these things the word of Yehovah came to Abram in a vision,
saying, Fear not, Abram I [am] your shield, [and] your reward
will increase greatly.
15:2 And Abram said, ADONEYE Yehovah, what will you 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 you have given no seed
and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
Seed is promised
15:4 And, behold, the word of Yehovah [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.
15:5 And 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.
15:6 And he believed in Yehovah ; and he counted it to him
15:7 And he said to him, I [am] Yehovah that brought you out
of land of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.
15:8 And he said, ADONEYE Yehovah, whereby shall I know that
I shall inherit it?
15:9 And he said to 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.
15:10 And he took to him all these, and divided them in the
middle, and laid each piece one against one another but the birds
divided he did not.
15:11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcasses, Abram
drove them away.
15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon
Abram ; and, behold, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
15:13 And he said to Abram, Know of a surety that your 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, whom they shall serve, will I
judge and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15:15 And you shall go to your fathers in peace ; you shall
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 went down, and
it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that
passed between those pieces.
15:18 In the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram,
saying, to your seed have I given this land, from the river of
Egypt tothe 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.
