Bible: Genesis 15:12-21

15:12 When the sun went down, Abram fell sound asleep, 1  and great terror overwhelmed him. 2  15:13 Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain 3  that your descendants will be strangers 4  in a foreign country. 5  They will be enslaved and oppressed 6  for four hundred years. 15:14 But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. 7  Afterward they will come out with many possessions. 15:15 But as for you, 8  you will go to your ancestors 9  in peace and be buried at a good old age. 10  15:16 In the fourth generation 11  your descendants 12  will return here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its limit.” 13 

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