Verse 11

Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan - Genesis 13:14-15.

The lot of your inheritance - Or, that shall be the lot of your inheritance; or, what you shall inherit. The margin is, “the cord.” The Hebrew word - חבל chebel - means properly a cord, a rope; and then, a measuring-line. Hence, it means a portion “measured out” and assigned to anyone as land, Joshua 17:14; Joshua 19:9. Compare Psalms 16:6. The meaning is, that the land of Canaan was given by promise to the patriarchs as their lot or portion of the earth; as that which they and their descendants were to possess as their own.
