SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:8 Y él respondió: Señor DIOS Â¿en qué conoceré que la tengo de heredar?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 15:8 Verse 8. And he said, Lord God] hwhy ynda Adonai Yehovah, my Lord Jehovah. Adonai is the word which the Jews in reading always substitute for Jehovah, as they count it impious to pronounce this name. Adonai signifies my director, basis, supporter, prop, or stay; and scarcely a more appropriate name can be given to that God who is the framer and director of every righteous word and action; the basis or foundation on which every rational hope rests; the supporter of the souls and bodies of men, as well as of the universe in general; the prop and stay of the weak and fainting, and the buttress that shores up the building, which otherwise must necessarily fall. This word often occurs in the Hebrew Bible, and is rendered in our translation Lord; the same term by which the word Jehovah is expressed: but to distinguish between the two, and to show the reader when the original is hwhy Yehovah, and when ynda Adonai, the first is always put in capitals, LORD, the latter in plain Roman characters, Lord. For the word Jehovah see on chap. ii. 4, and on Exod. xxxiv. 6.
Whereby shall I know] By what sign shall I be assured, that I shall inherit this land? It appears that he expected some sign, and that on such occasions one was ordinarily given.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-11 - Assurance was given to Abram of the land of Canaan for an inheritance God never promises more than he is able to perform, as men often do Abram did as God commanded him. He divided the beasts in the midst according to the ceremony used in confirming covenants, Jer 34:18, 19 Having prepared according to God's appointment, he set himself to wai for the sign God might give him. A watch must be kept upon ou spiritual sacrifices. When vain thoughts, like these fowls, come dow upon our sacrifices, we must drive them away, and seek to attend on God without distraction.
