Genesis 26, When he went to Beer-sheba, Jehovah appeared to him on the night of his arrival. “I am the God of Abraham your father,” he said. “Fear not, for I am with you and will bless you, and will give you so many descendants that they will become a great nation—because of my promise to Abraham, who obeyed me.”Then Isaac built an altar and worshiped Jehovah; and he settled there, and his servants dug a well. One day Isaac had visitors from Gerar. King Abimelech arrived with his advisor, Ahuzzath, and also Phicol, his army commander. “Why have you come?” Isaac asked them. “This is obviously no friendly visit, since you kicked me out in a most uncivil way.” “Well,” they said, “we can plainly see that Jehovah is blessing you. We’ve decided to ask for a treaty between us. Promise that you will not harm us, just as we have not harmed you, and in fact, have done only good to you and have sent you away in peace; we bless you in the name of the Lord.” So Isaac prepared a great feast for them, and they ate and drank in preparation for the treaty ceremonies. In the morning, as soon as they were up, they each took solemn oaths to seal a nonaggression pact. Then Isaac sent them happily home again. That very same day Isaac’s servants came to tell him, “We have found water”—in the well they had been digging. So he named the well, “The Well of the Oath,”[d] and the city that grew up there was named “Oath,”* and is called that to this day. FRIENDS, GOD WANTS TO MAKE A COVENANT WITH US AND HE WANTS TO BLESS US. Hebrews 8:6 But now hath Jesus obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
