The Bible teaches us that God called Abram the Hebrew, which means 'one from beyond', from the city of Ur of the Chaldees in southern Babylonia, (now known as Iraq and Kuwait), to forsake the pagan gods of his fathers, and to sojourn in Mesopotamia, and eventually in Canaan. Due to his obedience to God, the Lord promised to multiply Abram's descendants as the stars of the heavens, and as the innumerable sand on the seashore: "As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God." Genesis 17:4-8, KJV Abraham means 'father of a multitude' or 'chief of multitude'.
