Genesis 15:1-6New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
The Lord’s covenant with Abram
15 After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:
2 But Abram said, ‘Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit[c] my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?’ 3 And Abram said, ‘You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.’
4 Then the word of the Lord came to him: ‘This man will not be your heir, but a son who is your own flesh and blood will be your heir.’ 5 He took him outside and said, ‘Look up at the sky and count the stars – if indeed you can count them.’ Then he said to him, ‘So shall your offspring[d] be.’
6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
