Abram the Ramblin' Man
Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and
your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show
you. 2 I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you,
and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I
will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will
curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
4 So Abram went, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him.
Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
5 Abram took his wife Sarai and his brother's son Lot, and all
the possessions that they had gathered, and the persons whom they
had acquired in Haran; and they set forth to go to the land of
Canaan. When they had come to the land of Canaan, 6 Abram passed
through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh.
At that time the Canaanites were in the land. 7 Then the LORD
appeared to Abram, and said, "To your offspring I will give
this land." So he built there an altar to the LORD, who had
appeared to him. 8 From there he moved on to the hill country
on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the
west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD
and invoked the name of the LORD. 9 And Abram journeyed on by
stages toward the Negeb.

This is the real beginning for the nation of Israel and the
Hebrew people. It is God's covenant with Abram that begins the
journey to nationhood and as a people. The main thing here is
that Abram receive's God's call and in a tremendous act of faith
(at 75 years old) sets out to the land of Canaan. God's promise
to give all of the land to Abram and Sarai's offspring immediately
sets up the story for some tension, as they don't have any children
and are really too old to have any - or so they thought.
