Abraham gets a new name (Genesis 17:1 - 17:27) - Bible Blender
Still childless, Abram and Sarai were getting old when God reiterated his promise to Abram that he would be the father of many nations. God cemented the deal when he told Abram that he would no longer be called Abram but henceforth, would be called Abraham, a new name that was fitting. Abraham means “father of a multitude”. God also told Abraham that Sarai’s name would be changed to Sarah and foretold that he would bless Sarah and she would have a son.
