Genesis 12: 1-9

I am searching for SATB repertoire (accompanied or a cappella) suitable for Genesis 12: 1-9.

You might consider “Jordon” by William Billings (you’ll have to look up the additional verses).
You might also look into “Sicut Locutus” (from “Magnificat”) by Vivaldi or the same text set by Durante or Bach.

Debbie Friedman's L'chi lakh arr. Simon Sargon (SATB; pno) would be a perfect fit. Text is mostly English with a few Hebrew words.
Hope this helps,

There are several indices to supplement the ELCA hymnal Evangelical Lutheran Worship and I found two suggested hymns for the Genesis 12 text. One is I Want Jesus to Walk with Me - listed as hymn tune Sojourner. It's not an exact match since the text is Old Testament. The other suggestion is The God of Abraham Praise to the tune Yigdal. With luck there are good SATB settings of these hymns.

You might consider the short Motet  I have chosen You  by Philip Stopford.
It is a setting of St John 15:16
"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever you ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you."
