Genesis 12:1–7

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.
