The Abraham Bible story begins in the city of Ur of the Chaldees, in the region of Babylon, which is where God first appeared to Abraham (or Abram as he was originally called). God bade him leave what had become a country of idol worshippers, and journey to the land of Canaan or Palestine, where it seems, there still remained some true followers of the Almighty. In the region of Abraham's youth, even the family of the "first-born" had begun to serve other gods.
The family set out with their flocks for Canaan, but at first they could not stay there; a famine drove them to move onward to Egypt. When they eventually arrived in Canaan, Abraham had become a man of note throughout his world, the wealthy ruler of a great household, and owner of coutless flocks and herds.
After proving himself through various actions, God adopted Abraham as His friend, and made him a double promise: first, that he should be the father of a vast nation, and second, that his nation should drive out the people of Canaan and become possessors of all that beautiful land of Palestine. Abraham made a great sacrifice of slaughtered animals to the Lord, and Abraham fell into a deep sleep, in which God repeated and confirmed to him the twofold promise.
