Rav Zeev Weitman The Covenant Between the Parts After God promises the land to Avraham, he asks, "By what shall I know that I shall inherit it?" All of the commentators on the Torah have attempted to explain Avraham's question and how this response is consistent with the Torah's testimony concerning Avraham's response to God's promise of progeny: "And he believed in God." Another issue that must be addressed is in what way the covenant that is then forged with Avraham over the inheritance of the land is more binding than God's promise prior to his question.
