Genesis 17:3-8

Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying,

“As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you,
And you will be the father of a multitude of nations.
“No longer shall your name be called [a]Abram,
But your name shall be [b]Abraham;
For I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.

I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings will come forth from you. I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your [c]descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your [d]descendants after you. I will give to you and to your [e]descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
