What does Genesis 15:21 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

The Lord continues to define the area His chosen people will possess, by naming more of the people groups which currently occupy it. This is in the context of God's vow to grant all the land between the Wadi el-Arish—the "river of Egypt"—and the Euphrates to Abram's descendants. This final verse lists the Amorites, who were already mentioned as the future recipients of God's judgment, as well as the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
