1 After these things the word of Yahweh came to Abram in a vision, saying, 'Don't be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.'
2 Abram said, 'Lord Yahweh, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and he who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?'
3 Abram said, 'Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, behold, one born in my house is my heir.'
4 Behold, the word of Yahweh came to him, saying, 'This man will not be your heir, but he who will come forth out of your own body will be your heir.'
