Genesis 18:5 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 18:5

And I will fetch a morsel of bread
A piece or a loaf of bread, as De Dieu shows the word signifies; bread being put for all the necessaries of life:

and comfort ye your hearts;
eat to refresh your spirits and renew your strength, that ye may be able to pursue your journey: and

after that ye shall pass on
your way; I will retard you no longer:

for therefore are ye come to your servant;
not that he thought they came this way on purpose to take some refreshment with him, but so it was ordered by the providence of God; and since it was, he desires that they would accept of his invitation:

and they said, so do as thou hast said;
they agreed to it, that water should be fetched to wash their feet, and food for them to eat.

4 Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree.
5 Let me bring a little bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that you may pass on—since you have come to your servant." So they said, "Do as you have said."
6 And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, "Make ready quickly three measures of choice flour, knead it, and make cakes."
