Verse 15. - And, behold, I am with thee, - spoken to Isaac (cf. 26:24); again to Jacob (Genesis 31:3); afterwards to Christ's disciples (Matthew 28:20) - and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, - literally, in all thou goest - in all thy goings (cf. Genesis 48:16; Psalm 121:5, 7, 8) - and will bring thee again into this land; - equivalent to an intimation that his present journey to Padan-aram was not without the Divine sanction, though apparently it had been against the will of God that Isaac should leave the promised land (vide Genesis 14:6, 8) - for I will not leave thee, - a promise afterwards repeated to Israel (Deuteronomy 31:6, 8), to Joshua (Genesis 1:5), to Solomon (1 Chronicles 28:20), to the poor and needy (Isaiah 41:17), to Christians (Hebrews 13:7) - until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of - cf. Balaam's testimony to the Divine faithfulness (Numbers 23:19), and Joshua's (Genesis 21:45), and Solomon's (1 Kings 8:56). It is impossible, in connection with this sublime theophany granted to Jacob at Bethel, not to recall the similar Divine manifestation vouchsafed to Abraham beneath the starry firmament at Hebron (vide Genesis 15:1).
