25 Adam [a]had relations with his wife again; and she gave birth to a son, and named him [b]Seth, for, she said, “God [c]has appointed me another [d]offspring in place of Abel, for Cain killed him.”26 To Seth, to him also a son was born; and he called his name Enosh. Then men began to call [e]upon the name of the Lord.
6 Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them,2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were [a]beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not [b]strive with man forever, [c]because he also is flesh; [d]nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
“[a]Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; 2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so [b]you shall be a blessing; 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who [c]curses you I will [d]curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
19 But God said, “No, but Sarah your wife will bear you a son, and you shall call his name [a]Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his [b]descendants after him.
Genesis 28:13-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 And behold, the Lord stood [a]above it and said, “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your [b]descendants.14 Your [c]descendants will also be like the dust of the earth, and you will [d]spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your [e]descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
