God had said to Abram
"Leave your country, your people
and your father's household and
go to the land I will show you.
I will make you into a great nation
and I will bless you;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you."
So Abram left, as the God had told him.
Abram took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot,
and other people to the Land of Canaan.
God promised to give the land
to Abram's descendants.
and gave Abram a new name
Abram believed the God,
and he credited it to him as righteousness.
