    Covenant with Abraham: The condition of this covenant was that Abraham should leave his country, kindred, and his father's house to follow God into a land which he would show him. The promise was a fourfold blessing: Abraham would increase into a numerous people; blessing of material and spiritual prosperity; his name would be exalted; God promised not only to bless Abraham, but this blessing was to be extended to others, implicitly by the coming of the Messiah through his descendants (Genesis 12:1-3). Later this covenant was renewed, and Abraham was promised a son and a long posterity (Genesis 15). About fourteen years later the covenant was renewed with a change of his name and the establishment of the rite of circumcision, which was to be the sign of accepting and ratifying the covenant (Genesis 17).

    Gen 17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

    Gen 17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant [is] with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

    Gen 17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

    Gen 17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which [is] not of thy seed.

    Gen 17:13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

    Gen 17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
