SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:18 Aquel día hizo el SEÑOR pacto con Abram diciendo: A tu simiente daré esta tierra desde el río de Egipto hasta el río grande, el río Eufrates;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 15:18 Verse 18. The Lord made a covenant] tyrb trk carath berith signifies to cut a covenant, or rather the covenant sacrifice; for as no covenant was made without one, and the creature was cut in two that the contracting parties might pass between the pieces, hence cutting the covenant signified making the covenant. The same form of speech obtained among the Romans; and because, in making their covenants they always slew an animal, either by cutting its throat, or knocking it down with a stone or axe, after which they divided the parts as we have already seen, hence among the percutere faedus, to smite a covenant, and scindere faedus, to cleave a covenant, were terms which signified simply to make or enter into a covenant.
From the river of Egypt] Not the Nile, but the river called Sichor, which was before or on the border of Egypt, near to the isthmus of Suez; see Josh. xiii. 3; though some think that by this a branch of the Nile is meant.This promise was fully accomplished in the days of David and Solomon.See 2 Sam. viii. 3, &c., and 2 Chron. ix. 26.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-21 - The smoking furnace and the burning lamp, probably represented the Israelites' severe trials and joyful deliverance, with their graciou supports in the mean time. It is probable that this furnace and lamp which passed between the pieces, burned and consumed them, and s completed the sacrifice, and testified God's acceptance of it. So is intimates that God's covenants with man are made by sacrifice, Ps 50:5 And we may know that he accepts our sacrifices, if he kindles in ou souls pious and devout affections. The bounds of the land granted ar stated. Several nations, or tribes, are spoken of, that must be cas out to make room for the seed of Abram. In this chapter we perceive in Abram faith struggling against, and triumphing over, unbelief. Wonde not, believers, if you meet with seasons of darkness and distress. But it is not the will of God that you should be cast down: fear not; for all that he was to Abram he will be to you __________________________________________________________________
