I'll bless you, make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:
and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
I will bless those that bless you, and curse those that curse you. 
So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him:
and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
So when Abraham was 75 years old, he left Haran. 
And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their
substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the
land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain
of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
Abraham, Sarah, and Lot gathered all their possessions (and souls) and traveled from Haran to Canaan.
And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this
land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.
And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and
pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there
he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.
When they arrived in the land of Canaan, God appeared to Abraham , and said:
I will give all this land to your descendants.
Abraham built an altar for God at the place he appeared to him.
And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
If Abraham is telling the truth here, then Abraham's lie was half-true, since Sarah was his half-sister.
But we only have Abraham to go on here. The Bible doesn't say who Sarah's parents were.
If Sarah is Abraham's half-sister, their marriage is condemned by the
Bible; yet God makes an exception for Abraham and Sarah. (See Gen 17:15-16
where God blesses their marriage and Gen 20:2-18 where Abraham repeats the same
"she's my sister" lie.)
In which God sends Avram on the first Birthright trip ever, famine strikes immediately, and some kings get into a fight. Recorded live at the Parkside Lounge on February 18, 2013. Guest: Esther Werdiger
