  But ayour name shall be IIAbraham;
  For bI have made you the father of a multitude of nations.
6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and akings will come forth from you. 7 I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your Idescendants after you throughout their generations for an aeverlasting covenant, bto be God to you and cto your Idescendants after you. 8 aI will give to you and to your Idescendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and bI will be their God.”
