3Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him, 4'As for me, this is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations. 5No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations. 6I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. 7I will establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you. 8And I will give to you, and to your offspring after you, the land where you are now an alien, all the land of Canaan, for a perpetual holding; and I will be their God.'

9 God said to Abraham, 'As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations.


51Very truly, I tell you, whoever keeps my word will never see death.' 52The Jews said to him, 'Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and so did the prophets; yet you say, "Whoever keeps my word will never taste death." 53Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets also died. Who do you claim to be?' 54Jesus answered, 'If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, he of whom you say, "He is our God", 55though you do not know him. But I know him; if I were to say that I do not know him, I would be a liar like you. But I do know him and I keep his word. 56Your ancestor Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day; he saw it and was glad.' 57Then the Jews said to him, 'You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?' 58Jesus said to them, 'Very truly, I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.' 59So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
