The Call of Abram

12The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father's family, and go to the land that I will show you.H3068H559H87H3212H776H4138H1H1004H776H72002I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.H6213H1419H1471H1288H1431H8034H1431H1293 3I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you."H1288H1288H779H7043H4940H127H1288 4So Abram departed as the LORD had instructed, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.H87H3212H3068H1696H3876H3212H87H7657H8141H2568H8141H1121H3318H2771 5He took his wife, Sarai, his nephew Lot, and all his wealth—his livestock and all the people he had taken into his household at Haran—and headed for the land of Canaan. When they arrived in Canaan,H87H3947H8297H802H3876H251H1121H7399H7408H5315H6213H2771H3318H3212H776H3667H776H3667H935 6Abram traveled through the land as far as Shechem. There he set up camp beside the oak of Moreh. At that time, the area was inhabited by Canaanites.H87H5674H776H4725H7927H436H4176H3669H227H776 7Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, "I will give this land to your descendants." And Abram built an altar there and dedicated it to the LORD, who had appeared to him.H3068H7200H87H559H2233H5414H2063H776H1129H4196H3068H7200 8After that, Abram traveled south and set up camp in the hill country, with Bethel to the west and Ai to the east. There he built another altar and dedicated it to the LORD, and he worshiped the LORD.H6275H2022H6924H1008H5186H168H1008H3220H5857H6924H1129H4196H3068H7121H8034H3068 9Then Abram continued traveling south by stages toward the Negev.H87H5265H1980H5265H5045
