Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
I will give to you, and to your seed after you, the land where you are traveling, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession. I will be their God."
"You shall not wrong an alien, neither shall you oppress him, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.
"You shall not oppress an alien, for you know the heart of an alien, since you were aliens in the land of Egypt.
The stranger who lives as a foreigner with you shall be to you as the native-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you lived as foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am Yahweh your God.
Therefore love the foreigner; for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.
saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;"
God spoke in this way: that his seed would live as aliens in a strange land, and that they would be enslaved and mistreated for four hundred years.
By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he went.
