Verse 5. - Because that Abraham obeyed (literally, hearkened to) my voice (a general description of the patriarch's obedience, which the next clause further particularizes), and kept my charge, custodierit custodiam (Calvin); observed my observances (Kalisch); the charge being that which is intended to be kept - my commandments, - i.e. particular injunctions, specific enactments, express or occasional orders (cf. 2 Chronicles 35:16) - my statutes, - or permanent ordinances, such as the Passover; literally, that which is graven on tables or monuments (compare Exodus 12:14) - and my laws - which refer to the great doctrines of moral obligation. The three terms express the contents of the Divine observances which Abraham observed. 26:1-5 Isaac had been trained up in a believing dependence upon the Divine grant of the land of Canaan to him and his heirs; and now that there is a famine in the land, Isaac still cleaves to the covenant. The real worth of God's promises cannot be lessened to a believer by any cross providences that may befall him. If God engage to be with us, and we are where he would have us to be, nothing but our own unbelief and distrust can prevent our comfort. The obedience of Abraham to the Divine command, was evidence of that faith, whereby, as a sinner, he was justified before God, and the effect of that love whereby true faith works. God testifies that he approved this obedience, to encourage others, especially Isaac.
