1  When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless. 2  I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers."

7  I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. 8  The whole land of Canaan, where you are now an alien, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God."

9  Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.
