The Family Tree of Terah
27-28 This is the story of Terah. Terah had Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

    Haran had Lot. Haran died before his father, Terah, in the country of his family, Ur of the Chaldees.

 29 Abram and Nahor each got married. Abram's wife was Sarai; Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of his brother Haran. Haran had two daughters, Milcah and Iscah.

 30 Sarai was barren; she had no children.

 31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot (Haran's son), and Sarai his daughter-in-law (his son Abram's wife) and set out with them from Ur of the Chaldees for the land of Canaan. But when they got as far as Haran, they settled down there.

 32 Terah lived 205 years. He died in Haran.

Genesis 12

Abram and Sarai
 1 God told Abram: "Leave your country, your family, and your father's home for a land that I will show you. 

 2-3 I'll make you a great nation 
      and bless you. 
   I'll make you famous; 
      you'll be a blessing. 
   I'll bless those who bless you; 
      those who curse you I'll curse. 
   All the families of the Earth 
      will be blessed through you."

 4-6 So Abram left just as God said, and Lot left with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran. Abram took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot with him, along with all the possessions and people they had gotten in Haran, and set out for the land of Canaan and arrived safe and sound.

    Abram passed through the country as far as Shechem and the Oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites occupied the land.

 7 God appeared to Abram and said, "I will give this land to your children." Abram built an altar at the place God had appeared to him.

 8 He moved on from there to the hill country east of Bethel and pitched his tent between Bethel to the west and Ai to the east. He built an altar there and prayed to God.

 9 Abram kept moving, steadily making his way south, to the Negev.
