Genesis 15 ©
God encourageth Abram, who complaineth for want of an heir. God promiseth him a son, and a numerous seed. He is justified by his faith. The promise of Canaan is renewed, and confirmed to him by a sign and a vision.
AFTER these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a avision, saying, Fear not, bAbram: I am thy cshield, and thy exceeding dgreat reward.
And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and 1a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.
In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, xUnto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
