What does Genesis 28:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 28:4

And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy
seed with thee
Which was promised to Abraham, and was entailed upon Isaac and his seed, and now upon Jacob and his seed, which follows: that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which
God gave to Abraham;
the land of Canaan, which was given to Abraham by promise, but not in possession; he was a sojourner and stranger in it, and so Isaac had been all his days, and now Jacob, who through the blessing was become heir of it; but as yet neither he nor his posterity must enjoy it, but be strangers and sojourners in it, for the exercise of faith, and for the leading of their minds off of all earthly enjoyments, to the better and heavenly country God has provided for his people; see ( Hebrews 11:9 Hebrews 11:10 Hebrews 11:13 Hebrews 11:16 ) .
