Genesis Chapter 15
15:1 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a
vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding
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 mine heir.
15:4 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.
15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven,
and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto
him, So shall thy seed be.
15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for
15:7 And he said unto him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of
the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
15:8 And he said, LORD God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit
15:9 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.
15:10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and
laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
15:11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcasses, Abram drove them
15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram;
and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety 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, whom 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 went down, and it was
dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between
15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto
thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto 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 Rephaim,
15:21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the
