12 Genesis 15:1-6 2 But Abram said, “O Lord G OD, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 And Abram said, “Behold, you have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir.” Faces of Fear: Do-Overs

27 Genesis 17:1-8 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you. Faces of Fear: Do-Overs
