    Clarke's Commentary on Hebrews 6:14

    Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee - I will continue to bless thee.

    Multiplying I will multiply thee - I will continue to increase thy posterity. In the most literal manner God continues to fulfill this promise; genuine Christians are Abraham's seed, and God is increasing their number daily. See the notes on Genesis 22:12-18 (note); and Genesis 23:1 (note).

    Barnes' Notes on Hebrews 6:14

    Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee - That is, I will certainly bless thee. The phrase is a Hebrew mode of expression, to denote emphasis or certainty - indicated by the repetition of a word; compare Genesis 14:23; Exodus 8:10; Joel 3:14; Judges 5:30; Judges 15:16.

    Multiplying I will multiply thee - I will greatly increase thee - I will grant thee an exceedingly numerous posterity.
