And the Lord (A)appeared to him and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; (B)stay in the land of which I shall tell you. Live for a time in this land and (C)I will be with you and (D)bless you, for (E)to you and to your [a]descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish (F)the oath which I swore to your father Abraham. (G)I will multiply your [b]descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your [c]descendants all these lands; and (H)by your [d]descendants all the nations of the earth [e]shall be blessed, because Abraham [f](I)obeyed Me and fulfilled his duty to Me, and kept My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”
