12:1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.
12:2 “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
12:4 So Abram left, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Haran.
12:5 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.
12:6 Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land.
12:7 The LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the LORD, who had appeared to him.
12:8 From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the LORD and called on the name of the LORD.
12:9 Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.
1:17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.
1:18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.”
1:19 These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
1:20 But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.
1:21 Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
