Bible: Genesis 12:4-8

12:4 So Abram left, 1  just as the Lord had told him to do, 2  and Lot went with him. (Now 3  Abram was 75 years old 4  when he departed from Haran.) 12:5 And Abram took his wife Sarai, his nephew 5  Lot, and all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired 6  in Haran, and they left for 7  the land of Canaan. They entered the land of Canaan.

12:6 Abram traveled through the land as far as the oak tree 8  of Moreh 9  at Shechem. 10  (At that time the Canaanites were in the land.) 11  12:7 The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants 12  I will give this land.” So Abram 13  built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

12:8 Then he moved from there to the hill country east of Bethel 14  and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and worshiped the Lord. 15
