Genesis 15:17 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
"Then birds of prey (העיט with the article, as Genesis 14:13) came down upon the carcases, and Abram frightened them away." The birds of prey represented the foes of Israel, who would seek to eat up, i.e., exterminate it. And the fact that Abram frightened them away was a sign, that Abram's faith and his relation to the Lord would preserve the whole of his posterity from destruction, that Israel would be saved for Abram's sake (Psalm 105:42).
