    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:12

    ¶ Y fue que poniéndose el sol cayó sueño sobre Abram, y he aquí que un temor, una oscuridad grande cayó sobre él.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 15:12

    Verse 12. A
    deep sleep] hmdrt tardemah, the same word which is used to express the sleep into which Adam was cast, previous to the formation of Eve; chap. ii. 21.

    A horror of great darkness] Which God designed to be expressive of the affliction and misery into which his posterity should be brought during the four hundred years of their bondage in Egypt; as the next verse particularly states.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-16 - A deep sleep fell upon Abram; with this sleep a horror of grea darkness fell upon him: a sudden change. The children of light do no always walk in the light. Several things were then foretold. 1. The suffering state of Abram's seed for a long time. They shall be strangers. The heirs of heaven are strangers on earth. They shall be servants; but Canaanites serve under a curse, the Hebrews under blessing. They shall be suffers. Those that are blessed and beloved of God, are often sorely afflicted by wicked men. 2. The judgment of the enemies of Abram's seed. Though God may allow persecutors an oppressors to trample upon his people a great while, he will certainl reckon with them at last. 3. That great event, the deliverance of Abram's seed out of Egypt, is here foretold. 4. Their happy settlemen in Canaan. They shall come hither again. The measure of sin fill gradually. Some people's measure of sin fills slowly. The knowledge of future events would seldom add to our comfort. In the most favoure families, and most happy lives, there are so many afflictions, that it is merciful in God to conceal what will befall us and ours.
