What can you give me, I am too old to have children, and my only heir would be a servant of mine?
Do not fear, Abram! I am your shield; I will make your reward very great.
I put my faith in you my lord.
No, your heir will be your own offspring, look out at the stars, this is how many descendants you will have.
For 400 years, your descendants will live enslaved in the lands of others, and after these four hundred years, they will leave with great riches.
You will live on for a long time, and be buried here at a ripe old age, and four generations after, your descendants will return here, for the people in this land are not yet done with their wickedness.
To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the Euphrates.
