Genesis 12:6-8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

¶ So Abram [a]passed through the land unto the place of Shechem, and unto the [b]plain of Moreh (and the [c]Canaanite was then in the land)

And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land. And there built he [d]an altar unto the Lord, which appeared unto him.

Afterward removing [e]thence unto a mountain Eastward from Bethel, he pitched his tent having Bethel on the West side, and Ai on the East, and there he built an [f]altar unto the Lord, and called on the Name of the Lord.


  1. Genesis 12:6 He wandered to and fro in the land before he could find a settling place: thus God exerciseth the faith of his children.
  2. Genesis 12:6 Or, oak grove.
  3. Genesis 12:6 Which was a cruel and rebellious nation, by whom God kept his in continual exercise.
  4. Genesis 12:7 It was not enough for him to worship God in his heart, but it was expedient to declare by outward profession his faith before men, whereof this altar was a sign.
  5. Genesis 12:8 Because of the troubles that he had among that wicked people.
  6. Genesis 12:8 And so served the true God, and renounced all idolatry.
