As for me, lo! my covenant is with thee, - So shalt thou become - father of a multitude of nations; And thy name shall no more be called Abram, - but thy name shall become Abraham, for father of a multitude of nations, have I appointed thee; And I will make thee fruitful, exceedingly, and grant thee to be nations, - Yea kings, out of thee, shall come forth; And I will confirm my covenant betwixt me and thee and thy seed after thee to their generations for an age-abiding covenant, - to become to thee a God, and to thy seed after thee; And I will give to thee and to thy seed after thee the land of thy sojournings - all the land of Canaan, for an age-abiding possession - And I will be to them a God. And God said unto Abraham, But, as for thee, my covenant, must thou keep, thou and thy seed after thee, to their generations: - This, is my covenant which ye shall keep, betwixt me and you, and thy seed after thee, - To circumcise to you every male: So shall ye be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, - So shall it become a sign of a covenant, betwixt me and you. And he that is eight days old, shall be circumcised to you every male to your generations, - he that is born of the house, and he that is bought with silver of any son of a stranger, who is, not of thy seed, He must surely be circumcised, born of thy house or bought with thy silver, - So shall my covenant be in your flesh for an age-abiding covenant. But, as for the uncircumcised male who shall not be circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, - that person shall be cut off from among his people, - my covenant, hath he made void. And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, - but, Sarah, is her name; and I will bless her, yea moreover will give - from her - to thee, a son, - And I will bless her, and she shall become nations. Kings of peoples, from her, shall arise. And Abraham fell on his face and laughed, - and said in his heart To one a hundred years old, shall a child be born? And shall even Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth? And Abraham said unto God, - Oh that, Ishmael, might live before thee! And God said - Truly, Sarah thy wife, is about to bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name, Isaac, - and I will establish my covenant with him as an age-abiding covenant, to his seed after him. Yet as for Ishmael, I have heard thee; o! I have blessed trim and will make him fruitful, and multiply him, exceedingly, - twelve princes, shall he beget, and I will grant him to be a great nation; But my covenant, will I establish with Isaac, - whom Sarah shall bear, to thee, by this set time, in the next year. And he left off speaking with him, - and God went up from Abraham.

Abraham » Faith of

Romans 4:1-22

What then shall we say - as touching Abraham our forefather? For, if Abraham by works was declared righteous, he hath whereof to boast; - nevertheless, not towards God, - For what doth the Scripture say? And Abraham believed in God, and it was reckoned unto him as righteousness. read more.
Now, unto him that worketh, the reward is not reckoned by way of favour but by way of obligation, Whereas, unto him that worketh not but believeth on him that declareth righteous the ungodly, his faith is reckoned as righteousness. Just as David also affirmeth the happiness of the man unto whom God reckoneth righteousness apart from works: - Happy, they whose lawlessnesses have been forgiven and whose sins have been covered, Happy, the man whose sin the Lord will in nowise reckon. This happiness, then, is it for the circumcision, or for the uncircumcision? for we say - His faith was reckoned unto Abraham as righteousness: How, then, was it reckoned? When he was in circumcision or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision; And, a sign, he received namely of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while yet uncircumcised; to the end he might be father of all that believe during uncircumcision, to the end the same righteousness might be reckoned unto them, - And father of circumcision - unto them who are not of circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of the faith, while yet uncircumcised, of our father Abraham. For, not through means of law, doth the promise belong unto Abraham or unto his seed, - that he should be heir of thee world; but, through a righteousness by faith. For, if they who are of law are heirs, made void is faith and of no effect is the promise. For, the law, worketh out anger, but, where there is no law, neither is there transgression. For this cause, it is by faith, in order that it may be by way of favour, so that the promise is firm unto all the seed, - not unto that by the law only, but unto that also which is such by the faith of Abraham; who is father of us all, - Even as it is written - Father of many nations, have I appointed thee: before him whom he believed - God, who causeth the dead to live, and calleth the things that are not as things that are: - Who, past hope, upon hope believed, so that he became father of many nations, - according to what had been said - So shall be thy seed; - And, without becoming weak in his faith, he attentively considered his own body, already deadened - he being a hundred years old, the deadening also of Sarah's womb; In respect, however, of the promise of God, he was not led to hesitate by unbelief, but received power by his faith, giving glory unto God, And being fully persuaded (that), - what he hath promised, able is he also to perform: Wherefore also, it was reckoned unto him as righteousness.

Galatians 3:6-9

Even as Abraham - believed in God, and it was reckoned unto him as righteousness. Be taking note, therefore - that, they who are of faith, the same, are, sons, of Abraham; And, the scripture, foreseeing, that, by faith, God would declare the nations righteous, fore-announced the good news unto Abraham, saying, All the nations shall be blessed in thee. read more.
So then, they who are of faith, are blessed with believing Abraham;

Hebrews 11:8-10

By faith, being called, Abraham obeyed - to come forth into a place he was destined to receive for an inheritance; and he came forth, not well knowing whither he was coming. By faith, he sojourned in the land of promise, as a foreign land, in tents, dwelling, along with Isaac and Jacob, the joint-heirs of the same promise; For he was awaiting the city having foundations, whose architect and builder is, God.

Hebrews 11:17-19

By faith, Abraham, when tested, offered up Isaac, and, the only-begotten, would he have offered up, who the promises had accepted, - Even him of whom it had been said - In Isaac, shall there be called to thee, a seed: Accounting that, even from among the dead, God, was able, to raise him , - whence, even in similitude, he bare him away.

And it cared to pass after these things, that God, did prove Abraham, - and he said unto him, Abraham! And he said Behold me! And he said - Take, I pray thee, thy son, thine only one, whom thou lovest, even, Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah and cause him to ascend there as an ascending-sacrifice, on one of the mountains which I shall name unto thee.

It was, on the third day, that Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. And Abraham said unto his young men - Tarry by yourselves here with the ass, but I and the young man must go yonder, - that we may bow ourselves down and return unto you. So Abraham took the pieces of wood for the ascending-sacrifice, and laid them on Isaac his son, and took in his own hand the fire and the knife, and they went on their way, both of them together. Then said Isaac unto Abraham his father, then said he; My father! And he said, Behold me, my son, And he said, Behold the fire, and the pieces of wood, - but where is the lamb, for an ascending-sacrifice? And Abraham said, God, will provide for himself the lamb for an ascending-sacrifice, my son! So they went on their way, both of them, together. Then came they into the place which God had named to him, and Abraham built there the altar, and aid in order the pieces of wood, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, above the pieces of wood. And Abraham put forth his hand, and took the knife, - to slay his son. Then called out unto him the messenger of Yahweh out of the heavens, and said. Abraham, Abraham! And he said Behold me!

And, the holder of the promises, hath he blessed. But, apart from all gainsaying, the less, by the greater, is blessed. And, here, indeed, dying men take tithes, but, there, one of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
