Genesis 15:1-21

  1 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a avision, saying, bFear not, Abram: I am thy cshield, and thy exceeding great reward.
  2 And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the asteward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
  3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, aone born in my house is mine heir.
  4 And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
  5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and atell the bstars, if thou be able to cnumber them: and he said unto him, So shall thy dseed be.
  6 aAnd he bbelieved in the Lord; and he counted it to him for crighteousness.
  7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to ainherit it.
  8 And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I aknow that I shall inherit it?
  9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
  10 And he took unto him all these, and adivided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
  11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
  12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great adarkness fell upon him.
  13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a astranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall bafflict them four hundred years;
  14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they acome out with great bsubstance.
  15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good aold age.
  16 But in the afourth generation they shall come bhither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet cfull.
  17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that apassed between those pieces.
  18 In the same day the Lord made a acovenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this bland, from cthe river of Egypt unto the great river, the river dEuphrates:
  19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
  20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
  21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

Genesis 16:1-16

  1 Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an aEgyptian, whose name was bHagar.
  2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my amaid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
  3 And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
  4 ¶ And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
  5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was adespised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me and thee.
  6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her aas it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.
  7 ¶ And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to aShur.
  8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.
  9 And the aangel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and bsubmit thyself under her hands.
  10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy aseed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
  11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name aIshmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.
  12 And he will be a awild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
  13 And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?
  14 Wherefore the awell was called bBeer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
  15 ¶ And Hagar abare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, bIshmael.
  16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.

Genesis 17:1-27

  1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord aappeared to bAbram, and said unto him, I am the cAlmighty God; dwalk before me, and be thou eperfect.
  2 And I will make my acovenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
  3 aAnd Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
  4 As for me, behold, my acovenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a bfather of many cnations.
  5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be aAbraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
  6 And I will make thee exceeding afruitful, and I will make bnations of thee, and ckings shall come out of thee.
  7 aAnd I will establish my bcovenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an ceverlasting covenant, to be a dGod unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
  8 And I will agive unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the bland wherein thou art a cstranger, all the dland of eCanaan, for an everlasting fpossession; and I will be their gGod.
  9 ¶ And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.
  10 This is my acovenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be bcircumcised.
  11 And ye shall acircumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a btoken of the ccovenant betwixt me and you.
  12 And he that is aeight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bbought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
  13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an aeverlasting covenant.
  14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be acut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
  15 ¶ And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but aSarah shall her name be.
  16 And I will bless her, and agive thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a bmother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
  17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and alaughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an bhundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
  18 And Abraham said unto God, O that aIshmael might live before thee!
  19 And God said, aSarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my bcovenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
  20 And as for aIshmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; btwelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
  21 But my acovenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set btime in the next year.
  22 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.
  23 ¶ And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house; and acircumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.
  24 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
  25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
  26 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.
  27 And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

Genesis 21:1-34

  1 And the Lord avisited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto bSarah as he had spoken.
  2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a ason in his bold age, at the set ctime of which God had spoken to him.
  3 And Abraham called the name of his ason that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.
  4 And Abraham acircumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him.
  5 And Abraham was an ahundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.
  6 ¶ And Sarah said, God hath made me to alaugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.
  7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his aold age.
  8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
  9 ¶ And Sarah saw the son of aHagar the Egyptian, which she had bborn unto Abraham, cmocking.
  10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, aCast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be bheir with my son, even with Isaac.
  11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight because of his ason.
  12 ¶ And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in aIsaac shall thy bseed be called.
  13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a anation, because he is thy seed.
  14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and asent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of bBeer-sheba.
  15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.
  16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.
  17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the aangel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.
  18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great anation.
  19 And God aopened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
  20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an aarcher.
  21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a awife out of the land of bEgypt.
  22 ¶ And it came to pass at that time, that aAbimelech and bPhichol the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, cGod is with thee in all that thou doest:
  23 Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son’s son: but according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned.
  24 And Abraham said, I will swear.
  25 And Abraham areproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech’s servants bhad violently taken away.
  26 And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.
  27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of them amade a covenant.
  28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
  29 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves?
  30 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this awell.
  31 Wherefore he called that place aBeer-sheba; because there they sware both of them.
  32 Thus they made a covenant at Beer-sheba: athen Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.
  33 ¶ And Abraham planted a agrove in Beer-sheba, and bcalled there on the name of the Lord, the ceverlasting God.
  34 And Abraham sojourned in the aPhilistines’ land many days.

Genesis 22:1-24

  1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did atempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.
  2 And he said, aTake now thy son, thine bonly son Isaac, whom thou clovest, and get thee into the land of dMoriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
  3 ¶ And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the awood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
  4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
  5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and aworship, and come again to you.
  6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and alaid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
  7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, aHere am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
  8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a alamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
  9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and alaid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the baltar upon the wood.
  10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
  11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
  12 And he said, aLay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou bfearest God, seeing thou hast not cwithheld thy son, thine only son from me.
  13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
  14 And Abraham called the name of that place aJehovah-jireh: as it is said to this day, bIn the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
  15 ¶ And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
  16 And said, By myself have I asworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
  17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy aseed as the stars of the heaven, and as the bsand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the cgate of his enemies;
  18 And in thy aseed shall all the nations of the earth be bblessed; because thou hast cobeyed my voice.
  19 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.
  20 ¶ And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, aMilcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor;
  21 Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram,
  22 And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.
  23 And aBethuel begat bRebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor, Abraham’s cbrother.
  24 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.

Abraham 1:1-31

  1 In the land of the aChaldeans, at the residence of my fathers, I, bAbraham, saw that it was needful for me to obtain another place of cresidence;
  2 And, finding there was greater ahappiness and peace and rest for me, I sought for the blessings of the fathers, and the right whereunto I should be ordained to administer the same; having been myself a follower of brighteousness, desiring also to be one who possessed great cknowledge, and to be a greater follower of righteousness, and to possess a greater knowledge, and to be a father of many dnations, a prince of peace, and edesiring to receive instructions, and to keep the commandments of God, I became a rightful heir, a fHigh Priest, holding the right belonging to the fathers.
  3 It was aconferred upon me from the fathers; it came down from the fathers, from the beginning of time, yea, even from the beginning, or before the foundation of the earth, down to the present time, even the right of the bfirstborn, or the first man, who is cAdam, or first father, through the fathers unto me.
  4 I sought for mine aappointment unto the Priesthood according to the appointment of God unto the bfathers concerning the seed.
  5 My afathers, having turned from their righteousness, and from the holy commandments which the Lord their God had given unto them, unto the worshiping of the bgods of the cheathen, utterly refused to hearken to my voice;
  6 For their ahearts were set to do bevil, and were wholly turned to the god of cElkenah, and the god of Libnah, and the god of Mahmackrah, and the god of Korash, and the god of Pharaoh, king of Egypt;
  7 Therefore they turned their hearts to the sacrifice of the aheathen in offering up their children unto these dumb idols, and hearkened not unto my voice, but endeavored to take away my blife by the hand of the priest of Elkenah. The priest of Elkenah was also the priest of Pharaoh.
  8 Now, at this time it was the custom of the priest of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to offer up upon the altar which was built in the land of Chaldea, for the offering unto these strange gods, men, women, and children.
  9 And it came to pass that the priest made an offering unto the god of Pharaoh, and also unto the god of Shagreel, even after the manner of the Egyptians. Now the god of Shagreel was the sun.
  10 Even the thank-offering of a child did the apriest of Pharaoh offer upon the altar which stood by the hill called Potiphar’s Hill, at the head of the plain of Olishem.
  11 Now, this priest had offered upon this altar three virgins at one time, who were the daughters of Onitah, one of the royal descent directly from the loins of aHam. These virgins were offered up because of their virtue; they would not bbow down to worship gods of wood or of stone, therefore they were killed upon this altar, and it was done after the manner of the Egyptians.
  12 And it came to pass that the priests laid violence upon me, that they might slay me also, as they did those virgins upon this altar; and that you may have a knowledge of this altar, I will refer you to the representation at the commencement of this record.
  13 It was made after the form of a bedstead, such as was had among the Chaldeans, and it stood before the gods of Elkenah, Libnah, Mahmackrah, Korash, and also a god like unto that of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.
  14 That you may have an understanding of these gods, I have given you the fashion of them in the figures at the beginning, which manner of figures is called by the Chaldeans Rahleenos, which signifies hieroglyphics.
  15 And as they lifted up their hands upon me, that they might offer me up and take away my life, behold, I lifted up my voice unto the Lord my God, and the Lord ahearkened and heard, and he filled me with the vision of the Almighty, and the angel of his presence stood by me, and immediately bunloosed my bands;
  16 And his voice was unto me: aAbraham, Abraham, behold, my bname is Jehovah, and I have heard thee, and have come down to deliver thee, and to take thee away from thy cfather’s house, and from all thy kinsfolk, into a strange dland which thou knowest not of;
  17 And this because they have turned their ahearts away from me, to worship the god of Elkenah, and the god of Libnah, and the god of Mahmackrah, and the god of Korash, and the god of Pharaoh, king of Egypt; therefore I have come down to bvisit them, and to destroy him who hath lifted up his hand against thee, Abraham, my son, to take away thy life.
  18 Behold, I will lead thee by my hand, and I will take thee, to put upon thee my name, even the Priesthood of thy father, and my power shall be over thee.
  19 As it was with aNoah so shall it be with thee; but through thy ministry my bname shall be known in the earth cforever, for I am thy God.
  20 Behold, Potiphar’s Hill was in the land of aUr, of Chaldea. And the Lord broke down the altar of Elkenah, and of the gods of the land, and utterly destroyed them, and smote the priest that he died; and there was great mourning in Chaldea, and also in the court of Pharaoh; which Pharaoh signifies king by royal blood.
  21 Now this king of Egypt was a descendant from the aloins of bHam, and was a partaker of the blood of the cCanaanites by birth.
  22 From this descent sprang all the Egyptians, and thus the blood of the aCanaanites was preserved in the land.
  23 The land of aEgypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is forbidden;
  24 When this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land.
  25 Now the first agovernment of Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham, and it was after the manner of the government of Ham, which was patriarchal.
  26 Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom and judged his people wisely and justly all his days, seeking earnestly to imitate that aorder established by the fathers in the first generations, in the days of the first patriarchal reign, even in the reign of Adam, and also of Noah, his father, who blessed him with the bblessings of the earth, and with the blessings of wisdom, but cursed him as pertaining to the Priesthood.
  27 Now, Pharaoh being of that lineage by which he could not have the right of aPriesthood, notwithstanding the Pharaohs would fain bclaim it from Noah, through Ham, therefore my father was led away by their idolatry;
  28 But I shall endeavor, hereafter, to delineate the chronology running back from myself to the beginning of the creation, for the arecords have come into my hands, which I hold unto this present time.
  29 Now, after the priest of Elkenah was smitten that he died, there came a fulfilment of those things which were said unto me concerning the land of Chaldea, that there should be a afamine in the land.
  30 Accordingly a famine prevailed throughout all the land of Chaldea, and my father was sorely tormented because of the famine, and he repented of the evil which he had determined against me, to take away my alife.
  31 But the arecords of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood, the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning of the creation, and also of the bplanets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these things upon this crecord, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me.

Hebrews 11:8-19

  8 By faith aAbraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an binheritance, cobeyed; and he went out, not dknowing whither he went.
  9 By faith he asojourned in the bland of cpromise, as in a strange country, dwelling in dtabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
  10 For he looked for a acity which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
  11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
  12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in amultitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
  13 These all died in faith, not having received the apromises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were bstrangers and pilgrims on the earth.
  14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a acountry.
  15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
  16 But now they desire a better acountry, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
  17 By afaith Abraham, when he was btried, coffered up Isaac: and he that had received the dpromises offered up his only begotten son,
  18 Of whom it was said, That in aIsaac shall thy bseed be called:
  19 aAccounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

James 2:21-23

  21 Was not Abraham our father ajustified by works, when he had boffered Isaac his son upon the altar?
  22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by aworks was faith made bperfect?
  23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham abelieved God, and it was imputed unto him for brighteousness: and he was called the cFriend of God.

Jacob 4:5

  5 Behold, they believed in Christ and aworshiped the Father in his name, and also we worship the Father in his bname. And for this intent we ckeep the dlaw of Moses, it epointing our souls to him; and for this cause it is sanctified unto us for righteousness, even as it was accounted unto Abraham in the wilderness to be obedient unto the commands of God in offering up his son Isaac, which is a fsimilitude of God and his gOnly Begotten Son.

Doctrine and Covenants 132:34-36

  34 God acommanded Abraham, and Sarah gave bHagar to Abraham to wife. And why did she do it? Because this was the law; and from Hagar sprang many people. This, therefore, was fulfilling, among other things, the promises.
  35 Was Abraham, therefore, under condemnation? Verily I say unto you, Nay; for I, the Lord, acommanded it.
  36 Abraham was acommanded to offer his son Isaac; nevertheless, it was written: Thou shalt not bkill. Abraham, however, did not refuse, and it was accounted unto him for crighteousness.
