The Story of Abraham
Abram lived long ago in the land of Canaan and one day the Lord came to Abram and said,
“Abram, get out of your country, and out of your father's house, and go to the land that I will show you.”
The Lord promised him, “I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you will be a blessing.”
So Abram packed up all of his belongings; took Sarai, his wife, Lot, his nephew, all of his servants and all of his cattle and left for a new land.
Abraham and his family traveled a long way passing through towns and villages.
When they reached the land the Lord appeared to Abram again and said, “I will give this land to your children.”
And Abram said, " God, what will You give me?
I am childless..."
And the Lord said, "Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars; if you are able to number them: so your children will be."
Abram didn’t really know what G-d meant because he had no children of his own, but he trusted G-d and knew G-d would give him children.
Now, Sarai Abram's wife did not have any children. So Sarai suggested Hagar give him a child.
But as soon as Hagar bore him a child, she did not respect Sarai anymore.
Abram called his son Ishmael.
Years passed quickly and before long Abram was ninety-nine years old.
The Lord appeared to Abram again like so many times before.
G-d said, “I am almighty G-d ; I have promised that you will be the father of many nations. From now on you will be called Abraham and your wife Sarai will be called Sarah. I will bless her with a son.”
Later the Lord visited Sarah as He said he would, and Sarah had a son.They named their son Isaac.
Sarah and Abraham sent Hagar and Ishmael away, and they allowed Isaac to rule their land. Isaac’s people were the Hebrew tribes.
Ishmael had his own land. His people were the Arab tribes.
