    The Call of Abram \ O Chamado de Abrão

    in Christianity

    Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
    And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt 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.
    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.
    Gênesis 12:1-4
    Ora, o Senhor disse a Abrão: Sai-te da tua terra, da tua parentela e da casa de teu pai, para a terra que eu te mostrarei
    E eu farei de ti uma grande nação, e te abençoarei, e engrandecerei o teu nome; e tu serás uma bênção:
    E abençoarei os que te abençoarem, e amaldiçoarei os que te amaldiçoarem; e em ti serão todas as famílias da terra serão abençoados.
    Assim, partiu Abrão, como o Senhor tinha dito a ele; e Ló foi com ele; e Abrão {era} setenta e cinco anos quando saiu de Haran.
    Gênesis 12: 1-4
