Genesis 12:4, 6-7 NLT: “So Abram departed as the LORD had instructed, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran… .Abram traveled through the land as far as Shechem. There he set up camp beside the oak of Moreh. At that time, the area was inhabited by Canaanites. Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, ‘I will give this land to your descendants.’ And Abram built an altar there and dedicated it to the LORD, who had appeared to him.”
On the other side of departure, there is a promise.
