God speaks directly to Abraham, telling him to leave his life behind, using God's guidance to find the Land.
Go from your country, your people, your Father's household to the land to the land I will show you
The Covenant with God
At the age of 99, God appeared to Abram, to make a covenant between them. He told him that he would become the Father of all nations and would no longer be named Abram, but instead Abraham. He would promise to pass on the covenant for generations in return and ensure that future male born children get circumcised as a sign of the covenant between God and Abraham.
I will make you Father of many nations, and kings will come to you. I will make you fruitful if you make this covenant with me. Change your name to Abraham, and ensure that our covenant will be passed of through future generations, circumcision a sign of our great covenant.
