THE HOPE OF THINGS TO COME
Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg. After he begot Peleg, Eber lived four hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters. Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu. After he begot Reu, Peleg lived two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters. Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug. After he begot Serug, Reu lived two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters. Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor. After he begot Nahor, Serug lived two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot TERAH. - Genesis 11:16-24 .
And TERAH took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law SARAI, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there. - Genesis 11:31 .
Then God said to Abraham, “As for SARAI your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but SARAH (Princess) shall be her name. And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.” - Genesis 17:15-16 .
And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of SARAH'S womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, but also for us. It shall be imputed TO US WHO BELIEVE in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our JUSTIFICATION. - Romans 4:19-25 .
