Genesis 13:14-15

Context

13:14 After Lot had departed, the Lord said to Abram, 1  “Look 2  from the place where you stand to the north, south, east, and west. 13:15 I will give all the land that you see to you and your descendants 3  forever.

1 tn Heb “and the Lord said to Abram after Lot separated himself from with him.” The disjunctive clause at the beginning of the verse signals a new scene.

2 tn Heb “lift up your eyes and see.”

sn Look. Earlier Lot “looked up” (v. 10), but here Abram is told by God to do so. The repetition of the expression (Heb “lift up the eyes”) here underscores how the Lord will have the last word and actually do for Abram what Abram did for Lot – give him the land. It seems to be one of the ways that God rewards faith.

3 tn Heb “for all the land which you see to you I will give it and to your descendants.”
