Yahweh, the God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my birth, and who spoke to me and who swore to me, saying, ‘I will give this land to your seed,’ he himself will send his angel before you so that you can take a wife for my son from there. Bible see other translations

“who spoke to me and who swore to me.” God was not just an idea or theology to Abraham. The Creator of the heavens and the earth had spoken to him about his descendants, and he had no doubt about God’s purposes and the success God would give him. The line to the Messiah was at stake.
