     When the grandchildren of Noah  came to be many,

     At last God called to Abram.  God told him that if he would GO to a land that God told him about, that God would give that land to Abram and his children and that his children would number more than the stars in the sky.   

     So Abram obeyed by taking his wife, Sarai, and all his cattle and all his servants and WENT.  His brother's son, Lot and all his family went, also.
