(33) The Lord (Jehovah) went his way.--Not to avoid further importunity, for Abraham had ended his entreaty, and obtained all that he had asked for; but because the purpose of the revelation was fulfilled. Besides the primary object of making known the perfect justice of God's dealings with men, it further showed that the Gentile world was both subject to Jehovah's dominion, and that there was mercy for it as well as for the covenant people. Such, in future times, was also the lesson of the Book of Jonah.

Verse 33. - And the Lord (Jehovah) went his way, - i.e. vanished (Keil); not to avoid further entreaties on the part of Abraham (Delitzsch), but for the reason specified in the next words - as soon as he had left communing with Abraham (because Abraham's supplications were ended): and Abraham returned unto his place (viz., Mature near Hebron).
