Ge:14:23: That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
Ge:14:24: Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.

Ge:15:12: And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
Ge:15:13: And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
Ge:15:14: And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
Ge:15:15: And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.

Ge:15:20: And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
Ge:15:21: And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
