Genesis 15:12-21New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, [a]terror and great darkness fell upon him.13 God said to Abram, “Know for certain that your [b]descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, [c]where they will be enslaved and oppressed four hundred years.14 But I will also judge the nation whom they will serve, and afterward they will come out with [d]many possessions.15 As for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you will be buried at a good old age.16 Then in the fourth generation they will return here, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete.”
17 It came about when the sun had set, that it was very dark, and behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a flaming torch which passed between these pieces.18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying,
“To your [e]descendants I have given this land, From the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates:
19 the Kenite and the Kenizzite and the Kadmonite20 and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Rephaim21 and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Girgashite and the Jebusite.”
