God's Covenant with Abram

15:1 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.” But Abram said, “O Lord God, what will you give me, for I continue [1] childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?”

4:1 Therefore, my brothers, [3] whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. (ESV)
