Genesis 15:1-6New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
The Lord’s covenant with Abram

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.’

6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
