Bible: Gen 15:13-21

15:13 Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain 1  that your descendants will be strangers 2  in a foreign country. 3  They will be enslaved and oppressed 4  for four hundred years. 15:14 But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. 5  Afterward they will come out with many possessions. 15:15 But as for you, 6  you will go to your ancestors 7  in peace and be buried at a good old age. 8  15:16 In the fourth generation 9  your descendants 10  will return here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its limit.” 11 

15:17 When the sun had gone down and it was dark, a smoking firepot with a flaming torch 12  passed between the animal parts. 13  15:18 That day the Lord made a covenant 14  with Abram: “To your descendants I give 15  this land, from the river of Egypt 16  to the great river, the Euphrates River 15:19 the land 17  of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 15:20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 15:21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites, and Jebusites.” 18
