What does Nehemiah 9:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 9:8

And foundest his heart faithful before thee
A true believer in his word and promises, ( Genesis 15:6 ) and closely attached to the fear of him, and observance of his commands, as abundantly appeared in the trial of him, in offering up his son, ( Genesis 22:1 Genesis 22:2 Genesis 22:12 ) ,

and madest a covenant with him, to give the land of the Canaanites,
the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites,
and the Girgashites, to give it, [I say], to his seed;
not to him personally, but to his posterity, at least including and chiefly designing them; of which covenant see ( Genesis 15:18-21 ) ,

and hast performed thy words,
for thou art righteous; in all his ways and works, faithful to his promise, a covenant keeping God, and who kept and fulfilled this covenant, assisting Joshua to conquer the land of Canaan, and put Israel into the possession of it.
