Gen 15:1-6, (LITV)
|1 ||After these things the Word of Jehovah came to Abram in a vision, saying, Do not fear, Abram; I am your shield, your reward will increase greatly.|
|2 ||And Abram said, Lord Jehovah, what will You give to me since I am going childless and the son of the inheritance of my house is Eleazar of Damascus?|
|3 ||And Abram said, Behold! You have given no seed to me; and lo, the son of my house is inheriting of me!|
|4 ||And behold! The Word of Jehovah came to him saying, This one shall not be inheriting. But he that shall come forth out of your own bowels shall be your heir.|
|5 ||And He brought him outside and said, Look now at the heavens and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So shall your seed be.|
|6 ||And he believed in Jehovah. And He counted it to him for righteousness.|
