Artist's interpretation of the Covenant of Parts:

[Abram] said: “L‑rd G‑d, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it?” And He said to him: “Take Me three heifers, three goats, three rams, a turtledove and a young pigeon.”

He took to him all these, and he split them in the middle, and he placed each half opposite its fellow; the birds, however, he did not divide.

The eagle descended upon the carcasses, and Abram drove them away.

As the sun was near to setting, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.

And He said to Abram: “Know surely that your descendants shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and they will be enslaved to them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.

“And also that nation whom they shall serve will I judge; and afterwards they shall come out with great wealth.”

When the sun went down and it was dark, behold, a smoking furnace and a burning torch, which passed between those pieces. (Genesis 15)

On that day G‑d made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates.”
