Genesis 15 (WEBP)

[1] After these things Yahweh’s word came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Don’t be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
[2] Abram said, “Lord§ Yahweh, what will you give me, since I go childless, and he who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?”
[3] Abram said, “Behold, you have given no children to me: and, behold, one born in my house is my heir.”
[4] Behold, Yahweh’s word came to him, saying, “This man will not be your heir, but he who will come out of your own body will be your heir.”
[5] Yahweh brought him outside, and said, “Look now toward the sky, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” He said to Abram, “So your offspring will be.”
[6] He believed in Yahweh, who credited it to him for righteousness.
[7] He said to Abram, “I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.”
[8] He said, “Lord Yahweh, how will I know that I will inherit it?”
[9] He said to him, “Bring me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.”
[10] He brought him all these, and divided them in the middle, and laid each half opposite the other; but he didn’t divide the birds.
[11] The birds of prey came down on the carcasses, and Abram drove them away.
[12] When the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. Now terror and great darkness fell on him.
[13] He said to Abram, “Know for sure that your offspring will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years.
[14] I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth;
[15] but you will go to your fathers in peace. You will be buried at a good old age.
[16] In the fourth generation they will come here again, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full.”
[17] It came to pass that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold, a smoking furnace and a flaming torch passed between these pieces.
[18] In that day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram, saying, “I have given this land to your offspring, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:
[19] the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites,
[20] the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
[21] the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”

Genesis 15:2 The word translated “Lord” is “Adonai”.

Genesis 15 (KJVS)

[1] After H310 these things H1697 the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came H1961 (8804) unto Abram H87 in a vision H4236, saying H559 (8800), Fear H3372 (8799) not, Abram H87: I [am] thy shield H4043, [and] thy exceeding H3966 great H7235 (8687) reward H7939.
[2] And Abram H87 said H559 (8799), Lord H136 GOD H3069, what wilt thou give H5414 (8799) me, seeing I go H1980 (8802) childless H6185, and the steward H1121 H4943 of my house H1004 [is] this H1931 Eliezer H461 of Damascus H1834?
[3] And Abram H87 said H559 (8799), Behold, to me thou hast given H5414 (8804) no H3808 seed H2233: and, lo, one born H1121 in my house H1004 is mine heir H3423 (8802).
[4] And, behold, the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 [came] unto him, saying H559 (8800), This shall not be thine heir H3423 (8799); but he that shall come forth H3318 (8799) out of thine own bowels H4578 shall be thine heir H3423 (8799).
[5] And he brought him forth H3318 (8686) abroad H2351, and said H559 (8799), Look H5027 (8685) now toward heaven H8064, and tell H5608 (8798) the stars H3556, if thou be able H3201 (8799) to number H5608 (8800) them: and he said H559 (8799) unto him, So H3541 shall thy seed H2233 be.
[6] And he believed H539 (8689) in the LORD H3068; and he counted H2803 (8799) it to him for righteousness H6666.
[7] And he said H559 (8799) unto him, I [am] the LORD H3068 that brought thee out H3318 (8689) of Ur H218 of the Chaldees H3778, to give H5414 (8800) thee this land H776 to inherit H3423 (8800) it.
[8] And he said H559 (8799), Lord H136 GOD H3069, whereby H4100 shall I know H3045 (8799) that I shall inherit it H3423 (8799)?
[9] And he said H559 (8799) unto him, Take H3947 (8798) me an heifer H5697 of three years old H8027 (8794), and a she goat H5795 of three years old H8027 (8794), and a ram H352 of three years old H8027 (8794), and a turtledove H8449, and a young pigeon H1469.
[10] And he took H3947 (8799) unto him all these, and divided H1334 (8762) them in the midst H8432, and laid H5414 (8799) each H376 piece H1335 one against H7125 (8800) another H7453: but the birds H6833 divided H1334 (8804) he not.
[11] And when the fowls H5861 came down H3381 (8799) upon the carcases H6297, Abram H87 drove them away H5380 (8686).
[12] And when the sun H8121 was going down H935 (8800), a deep sleep H8639 fell H5307 (8804) upon Abram H87; and, lo, an horror H367 of great H1419 darkness H2825 fell H5307 (8802) upon him.
[13] And he said H559 (8799) unto Abram H87, Know H3045 (8799) of a surety H3045 (8800) that thy seed H2233 shall be a stranger H1616 in a land H776 [that is] not theirs, and shall serve H5647 (8804) them; and they shall afflict H6031 (8765) them four H702 hundred H3967 years H8141;
[14] And also that nation H1471, whom they shall serve H5647 (8799), will I judge H1777 (8802): and afterward H310 H3651 shall they come out H3318 (8799) with great H1419 substance H7399.
[15] And thou shalt go H935 (8799) to thy fathers H1 in peace H7965; thou shalt be buried H6912 (8735) in a good H2896 old age H7872.
[16] But in the fourth H7243 generation H1755 they shall come hither H2008 again H7725 (8799): for the iniquity H5771 of the Amorites H567 [is] not yet H2008 full H8003.
[17] And it came to pass, that, when the sun H8121 went down H935 (8804), and it was dark H5939, behold a smoking H6227 furnace H8574, and a burning H784 lamp H3940 that passed H5674 (8804) between H996 those pieces H1506.
[18] In the same H1931 day H3117 the LORD H3068 made H3772 (8804) a covenant H1285 with Abram H87, saying H559 (8800), Unto thy seed H2233 have I given H5414 (8804) this land H776, from the river H5104 of Egypt H4714 unto the great H1419 river H5104, the river H5104 Euphrates H6578:
[19] The Kenites H7017, and the Kenizzites H7074, and the Kadmonites H6935,
[20] And the Hittites H2850, and the Perizzites H6522, and the Rephaims H7497,
[21] And the Amorites H567, and the Canaanites H3669, and the Girgashites H1622, and the Jebusites H2983.

Young’s Literal Translation

Genesis 15 (YLT)

[1] After these things hath the word of Jehovah been unto Abram in a vision, saying, ‘Fear not, Abram, I am a shield to thee, thy reward is exceeding great.’
[2] And Abram saith, ‘Lord Jehovah, what dost Thou give to me, and I am going childless? and an acquired son in my house is Demmesek Eliezer.’
[3] And Abram saith, ‘Lo, to me Thou hast not given seed, and lo, a domestic doth heir me.’
[4] And lo, the word of Jehovah is unto him, saying, ‘This one doth not heir thee; but he who cometh out from thy bowels, he doth heir thee;’
[5] and He bringeth him out without, and saith, ‘Look attentively, I pray thee, towards the heavens, and count the stars, if thou art able to count them;’ and He saith to him, ‘Thus is thy seed.’
[6] And he hath believed in Jehovah, and He reckoneth it to him-righteousness.
[7] And He saith unto him, ‘I am Jehovah who brought thee out from Ur of the Chaldees, to give to thee this land to possess it;’
[8] and he saith, ‘Lord Jehovah, whereby do I know that I possess it?’
[9] And He saith unto him, ‘Take for Me a heifer of three years, and a she-goat of three years, and a ram of three years, and a turtle-dove, and a young bird;’
[10] and he taketh to him all these, and separateth them in the midst, and putteth each piece over against its fellow, but the bird he hath not divided;
[11] and the ravenous birds come down upon the carcases, and Abram causeth them to turn back.
[12] And the sun is about to go in, and deep sleep hath fallen upon Abram, and lo, a terror of great darkness is falling upon him;
[13] and He saith to Abram, ‘knowing-know that thy seed is a sojourner in a land not theirs, and they have served them, and they have afflicted them four hundred years,
[14] and the nation also whom they serve I judge, and after this they go out with great substance;
[15] and thou-thou comest in unto thy fathers in peace; thou art buried in a good old age;
[16] and the fourth generation doth turn back hither, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete.’
[17] And it cometh to pass-the sun hath gone in, and thick darkness hath been-and lo, a furnace of smoke, and a lamp of fire, which hath passed over between those pieces.
[18] In that day hath Jehovah made with Abram a covenant, saying, ‘To thy seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Phrat,
[19] with the Kenite, and the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite,
[20] and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Rephaim,
[21] and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Girgashite, and the Jebusite.’
