Abram’s Family

27 This is the accountp of Terah’s family line.

Terah became the father of Abram, Nahorq and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot.r 28 While his father Terah was still alive, Haran died in Ur of the Chaldeans,s in the land of his birth. 29 Abram and Nahort both married. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai,u and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milkah;v she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milkah and Iskah. 30 Now Sarai was childless because she was not able to conceive.w

31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lotx son of Haran, and his daughter-in-lawy Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeansz to go to Canaan.a But when they came to Harran,b they settled there.

32 Terahc lived 205 years, and he died in Harran.

The Call of Abram

12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s householdd to the lande I will show you.f

“I will make you into a great nation,g

and I will bless you;h

I will make your name great,

and you will be a blessing.a i

I will bless those who bless you,

and whoever curses you I will curse;j

and all peoples on earth

will be blessed through you.kb

So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lotl went with him. Abram was seventy-five years oldm when he set out from Harran.n He took his wife Sarai,o his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulatedp and the peopleq they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan,r and they arrived there.

Abram traveled through the lands as far as the site of the great tree of Moreht at Shechem.u At that time the Canaanitesv were in the land. The Lord appeared to Abramw and said, “To your offspringc I will give this land.xy So he built an altar there to the Lord,z who had appeared to him.

From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethela and pitched his tent,b with Bethel on the west and Aic on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.d

Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.e
