The Call of Abram

12 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country, your family, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.

I will make of you a great nation;
    I will bless you

I will bless them who bless you
    and curse him who curses you,[a]
and in you all families of the earth
    will be blessed.”

And the Lord said, “Arise, anoint him, for this is he.”
