Him take <​me​> a heifer <​of​> three years old, And & she goat of three years old, And a ram of three years old, And a turtle dove of <​7/​> three yea & a young Pigeon, <​/​> & he took unto him all these, A And he divided them in the midst, And he laid each piece one against the other; but the birds divided he not. And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away. & when the Son <​Sun​> was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; And Lo!, a great horur of darkn<​8/​>ess fell upon him. <​/​> & the Lord spake, And he said unto Abram, now know of a shurety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land which shall not be theirs. And shall serv <​Serve​> strangers; & they shall be afflicted, & serv <​seve​> <​serve​> them four hundred years; And also, that Nation whom they shall serve, will I Judge; And afterwards shall they come out with <​9/​> great sustanance. <​/​> And thou shalt die, & go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again; for <​10/​> the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. <​10/​> And it came to pass, that when the Sun went down, & it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, & a burning lamp which passed bet ween those pieces which Abraham had divided. <​11/​> And in that <​11/​> same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, unto thy seed have I given this land, from the River of Egypt unto the great River Euphrates; the Renites <​Kenites​>, & the Renazites <​Kenazites​>, & the Hadmonites <​Kadmonites​>, & the Hitites, & the Perezites, & the Rephaimites <​Rephaims​>, & the Amonites <​Amorites​>, & the cananites <​canaanites​>, & the Pergasites <​Girgashites​>, & the Hivites <​Jebusites​>.

Now Sarai, Abrams wife, bear him no Children. And She had a handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing; I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may <​2/​> obtain Children by her. <​2/​> And Abram hearkened unto the voice of Sarai, <​& Sarai,​> Abrams wife, took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt with ten years in the land of Canaan, <​3/​> & gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. <​3/​> And he went in unto Hagan [Hagar], & she conceived: And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was dispised in her eyes.
