4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, And you will be the father of a multitude of nations. 5 “No longer shall your name be called [a]Abram, But your name shall be [b]Abraham; For I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.
6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings will come forth from you.
Genesis 22:17-24New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your [a]seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your [b]seed shall possess the gate of [c]their enemies.18 In your [d]seed all the nations of the earth shall [e]be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham lived at Beersheba.
20 Now it came about after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, “Behold, Milcah [f]also has borne children to your brother Nahor:21 Uz his firstborn and Buz his brother and Kemuel the father of Aram22 and Chesed and Hazo and Pildash and Jidlaph and Bethuel.”23 Bethuel [g]became the father of Rebekah; these eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham’s brother.24 His concubine, whose name was Reumah, [h]also bore Tebah and Gaham and Tahash and Maacah.
