SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:10 Este será mi pacto, que guardaréis entre mí y vosotros y tu simiente después de ti: Será circuncidado en vosotros todo macho.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 17:10 Verse 10. Every man-child-shall be circumcised.] Those who wish to invalidate the evidence of the Divine origin of the Mosaic law, roundly assert that the Israelites received the rite of circumcision from the Egyptians. Their apostle in this business is Herodotus, who, lib. ii., p.116, Edit. Steph. 1592, says: ""The Colchians, Egyptians, and Ethiopians, are the only nations in the world who have used circumcision apÆ archv, from the remotest period; and the Phoenicians and Syrians who inhabit Palestine acknowledge they received this from the Egyptians."" Herodotus cannot mean Jews by Phoenicians and Syrians; if he does he is incorrect, for no Jew ever did or ever could acknowledge this, with the history of Abraham in his hand. If Herodotus had written before the days of Abraham, or at least before the sojourning of the children of Israel in Egypt, and informed us that circumcision had been practiced among them apÆ archv, from the beginning, there would then exist a possibility that the Israelites while sojourning among them had learned and adopted this rite. But when we know that Herodotus flourished only 484 years before the Christian era, and that Jacob and his family sojourned in Egypt more than 1800 years before Christ, and that all the descendants of Abraham most conscientiously observed circumcision, and do so to this day, then the presumption is that the Egyptians received it from the Israelites, but that it was impossible the latter could have received it from the former, as they had practiced it so long before their ancestors had sojourned in Egypt.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-14 - The covenant of grace is from everlasting in the counsels of it, and to everlasting in the consequences of it. The token of the covenant wa circumcision. It is here said to be the covenant which Abraham and his seed must keep. Those who will have the Lord to be to them a God, mus resolve to be to him a people. Not only Abraham and Isaac, and his posterity by Isaac, were to be circumcised, but also Ishmael and the bond-servants. It sealed not only the covenant of the land of Canaan to Isaac's posterity, but of heaven, through Christ, to the whole churc of God. The outward sign is for the visible church; the inward seal of the Spirit is peculiar to those whom God knows to be believers, and he alone can know them. The religious observance of this institution wa required, under a very severe penalty. It is dangerous to make light of Divine institutions, and to live in the neglect of them. The covenan in question was one that involved great blessings for the world in all future ages. Even the blessedness of Abraham himself, and all the rewards conferred upon him, were for Christ's sake. Abraham wa justified, as we have seen, not by his own righteousness, but by fait in the promised Messiah.
