The LORD said to Abram:
“Go forth from the land of your
kinsfolk and from your father’s
house to a land that I will show
“I will make of you a great
nation, and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
so that you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you
and curse those who curse you.
All the communities of the earth
shall find blessing in you.”
