Genesis 12:1-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Call of Abram

12 The Lord said to Abram:

Go out from your land,
your relatives,
and your father’s house
to the land that I will show you.
I will make you into a great nation,
I will bless you,
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.[a]
I will bless those who bless you,
I will curse those who treat you with contempt,
and all the peoples[b] on earth
will be blessed[c] through you.[d]

So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was 75 years old when he left Haran.

Acts 7:2-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

“Brothers and fathers,” he said, “listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he settled in Haran, and said to him:

Get out of your country
and away from your relatives,
and come to the land
that I will show you.[a]

“Then he came out of the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Haran. From there, after his father died, God had him move to this land you now live in.
