God's Call to Abram

1The LORD said to Abram, “Leave your country, your relatives, and your father's home, and go to a land that I am going to show you. 2I will give you many descendants, and they will become a great nation. I will bless you and make your name famous, so that you will be a blessing.

3I will bless those who bless you,

But I will curse those who curse you.

And through you I will bless all the nations.”

4When Abram was 75 years old, he started out from Haran, as the LORD had told him to do; and Lot went with him.
