Abram journeyed on, continuing toward the Negev.
He went on his journeys from the Negev as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai,
Now Isaac had come from going to Beer-lahai-roi; for he was living in the Negev.
So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, he and his wife and all that belonged to him, and Lot with him.
And they wandered about from nation to nation,
From one kingdom to another people.
All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.
