Also, it is a very important chapter in the book of Exodus:
Genesis 17: 2 Between you and me I will establish my covenant, and I will multiply you exceedingly.
Genesis 17: 4-8 For my part, here is my covenant with you: you are to become the father of a multitude of nations. No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.”
It is was on that night, Abraham received a word that would change history.
