12 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage Biblia Hebraica

12 1THE LORD SAID TO ABRAM, 'Leave your own country, your kinsmen, and your father's house, and go to a country that I will show you. ABRAHAM: God's call to Abram. Gn.12.1-9וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־אַבְרָם

לֶךְ־לְךָ מֵאַרְצְךָ וּמִמֹּולַדְתְּךָ וּמִבֵּית אָבִיךָ אֶל־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אַרְאֶךָּ׃

2I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you and make your name so great that it shall be used in blessings:  וְאֶעֶשְׂךָ לְגֹוי גָּדֹול וַאֲבָרֶךְךָ וַאֲגַדְּלָה שְׁמֶךָ וֶהְיֵה בְּרָכָה׃
3Those that bless you I will bless,
those that curse you, I will execrate.
All the families on earth
will pray to be blessed as you are blessed.'
 וַאֲבָרֲכָה מְבָרְכֶיךָ וּמְקַלֶּלְךָ אָאֹר
וְנִבְרְכוּ בְךָ כֹּל מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָאֲדָמָה׃
4And so Abram set out as the LORD had bidden him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Harran.  וַיֵּלֶךְ אַבְרָם כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר אֵלָיו יְהוָה וַיֵּלֶךְ אִתֹּו לֹוט וְאַבְרָם בֶּן־חָמֵשׁ שָׁנִים וְשִׁבְעִים שָׁנָה בְּצֵאתֹו מֵחָרָן׃
5He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the property they had collected, and all the dependants they had acquired in Harran, and they started on their journey to Canaan. When they arrived,  וַיִּקַּח אַבְרָם אֶת־שָׂרַי אִשְׁתֹּו וְאֶת־לֹוט בֶּן־אָחִיו וְאֶת־כָּל־רְכוּשָׁם אֲשֶׁר רָכָשׁוּ וְאֶת־הַנֶּפֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר־עָשׂוּ בְחָרָן וַיֵּצְאוּ לָלֶכֶת אַרְצָה כְּנַעַן וַיָּבֹאוּ אַרְצָה כְּנָעַן׃
6Abram passed through the country to the sanctuary at Shechem, the terebinth-tree of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites lived in this land.  וַיַּעֲבֹר אַבְרָם בָּאָרֶץ עַד מְקֹום שְׁכֶם עַד אֵלֹון מֹורֶה וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי אָז בָּאָרֶץ׃
7There the LORD appeared to Abram and said, 'I give this land to your descendants.' So Abram built an altar there to the LORD who had appeared to him.  וַיֵּרָא יְהוָה אֶל־אַבְרָם וַיֹּאמֶר לְזַרְעֲךָ אֶתֵּן אֶת־הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת וַיִּבֶן שָׁם מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָה הַנִּרְאֶה אֵלָיו׃
8Thence he went on to the hill-country east of Bethel and pitched his tent between Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the LORD and invoked the LORD by name.  וַיַּעְתֵּק מִשָּׁם הָהָרָה מִקֶּדֶם לְבֵית־אֵל וַיֵּט אָהֳלֹה בֵּית־אֵל מִיָּם וְהָעַי מִקֶּדֶם וַיִּבֶן־שָׁם מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָה וַיִּקְרָא בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה׃
9Thus Abram journeyed by stages towards the Negeb.  וַיִּסַּע אַבְרָם הָלֹוךְ וְנָסֹועַ הַנֶּגְבָּה׃ ף
