Bible: Gen 17:3-8

17:3 Abram bowed down with his face to the ground, 1  and God said to him, 2  17:4 As for me, 3  this 4  is my covenant with you: You will be the father of a multitude of nations. 17:5 No longer will your name be 5  Abram. Instead, your name will be Abraham 6  because I will make you 7  the father of a multitude of nations. 17:6 I will make you 8  extremely 9  fruitful. I will make nations of you, and kings will descend from you. 10  17:7 I will confirm 11  my covenant as a perpetual 12  covenant between me and you. It will extend to your descendants after you throughout their generations. I will be your God and the God of your descendants after you. 13  17:8 I will give the whole land of Canaan – the land where you are now residing 14 to you and your descendants after you as a permanent 15  possession. I will be their God.”
