15:1After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
15:2And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
15:3And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and lo, one born in my house is my heir.
15:4And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, saying, This shall not be thy heir; but he that shall come forth out of thy own bowels shall be thy heir.
15:5And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now towards heaven, and tell the stars, if thou art able to number them: and he said to him, So shall thy seed be.
15:6And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
15:7And he said to him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
15:8And he said, Lord GOD, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it?
15:9And he said to him, Take me a heifer of three years old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtle-dove, and a young pigeon.
15:10And he took to him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds he did not divide.
15:11And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
15:12And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.
15:13And he said to Abram, Know certainly that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
15:14And also that nation which they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15:15And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
15:16But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
15:17And it came to pass, that when the sun had gone down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.
15:18In that same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, To thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:
15:19The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
15:20And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
15:21And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

Noah Webster's Bible 1833

While Noah Webster, just a few years after producing his famous Dictionary of the English Language, produced his own modern translation of the English Bible in 1833; the public remained too loyal to the King James Version for Webster’s version to have much impact.
