Genesis 15:7 New English Translation (NET Bible)

The Lord said[a] to him, “I am the Lord[b] who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans[c] to give you this land to possess.”


  1. Genesis 15:7 tn Heb “And he said.”
  2. Genesis 15:7 sn I am the Lord. The Lord initiates the covenant-making ceremony with a declaration of who he is and what he has done for Abram. The same form appears at the beginning of the covenant made at Sinai (see Exod 20:1).
  3. Genesis 15:7 sn The phrase of the Chaldeans is a later editorial clarification for the readers, designating the location of Ur. From all evidence there would have been no Chaldeans in existence at this early date; they are known in the time of the neo-Babylonian empire in the first millennium b.c.
