God Called Abraham
But something happened that changed Abraham’s whole life. God told Abraham to leave his country, relatives1 and father’s home and go to a country that he would show him.
12 The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your country, your relatives, and your father’s home, and go to a land that I am going to show you. 2 I will give you many descendants, and they will become a great nation. I will bless you and make your name famous, so that you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
But I will curse those who curse you.
And through you I will bless all the nations.”
4 When Abram was seventy-five years old, he started out from Haran, as the Lord had told him to do; and Lot went with him.
So Abraham went (Genesis 12:4).
