12 The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your country, your relatives, and your father’s ·family [L house], and go to the land I will show you [C Canaan, the Promised Land].

I will make you a great nation,
    and I will bless you.
I will make ·you famous [L your name great],
    ·and [or so that] you will be a blessing to others.
I will bless those who bless you,
    and I will place a curse on those who ·harm [or curse] you.
And all the ·people [families; clans] on earth
    will be blessed through you [C the promises of the Abrahamic covenant].”
