Initial Acquaintance/Rough Translation


1 And the Lord said to Abram, "Go! (Impv) from your land and from your kindred, and from the house of your fathers to the land that I will show you.
2 And I will make you as a great nation and I will bless you and I will make great your name and it (your name) will be a blessing.
3 And I will bless the-ones-blessing (ptc) you and the-ones-despising (ptc) you I will curse and all the families of the ground will be blessed by you."
4 And Abram went as that the Lord spoke to him. And Lot went with him.
