And he came to the land which God had promised unto him as an inheritance, in the land of Canaan did Abraham make his abode.

Notes/References:
 

26. So Abraham dwelt in Canaan peaceably for the space of many years, and all the inhabitants round about had respect for him, for he was wise above all men, and the hand of God was made manifest in all his doings.

27. Wherefore, the land of Canaan became as an inheritance to Abraham because he walked in holiness before God and man, and in the visions of the night the Lord spoke to him, saying:

28. “Come now, my friend Abraham, lift up your eyes upon all the lands round about. For all the land which you see shall I give you and your seed forever.

29. For I shall make your seed great among all the people of the land, evensomuch that none shall be able to number them.

30. Now arise and walk throughout the land. Go forth throughout the length and breadth and wheresoever your foot shall tread, even that land will I give you for an inheritance.”

31. So Abraham arose and journeyed throughout all the land of Canaan. And when Abraham came to the waters of Mamre in the land of Hebron, he beheld its great worth, for the water was sweet and the land filled with plenty.

32. Thus did Abraham come to dwell in the lands of Hebron; by the waters of Mamre did he dwell; under the shadow of the terebinth tree did he spread his tent.

Beginnings 27:26-32

 

Was not Abraham called of God to dwell in the midst of strangers when first he left the land of the Chaldeans to come unto Canaan? Was he first born a Jew like unto you, or a Gentile like unto these?
