let us
Genesis 15:18
On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, "To your descendants I have given this land, From the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates:
Genesis 21:22-32
22
Now it came about at that time that Abimelech and Phicol, the commander of his army, spoke to Abraham, saying, "God is with you in all that you do;
23
now therefore, swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me or with my offspring or with my posterity, but according to the kindness that I have shown to you, you shall show to me and to the land in which you have sojourned."
24
Abraham said, "I swear it."
25
But Abraham complained to Abimelech because of the well of water which the servants of Abimelech had seized.
26
And Abimelech said, "I do not know who has done this thing; you did not tell me, nor did I hear of it until today."
27
Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a covenant.
28
Then Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
29
Abimelech said to Abraham, "What do these seven ewe lambs mean, which you have set by themselves?"
30
He said, "You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may be a witness to me, that I dug this well."
31
Therefore he called that place Beersheba, because there the two of them took an oath.
32
So they made a covenant at Beersheba; and Abimelech and Phicol, the commander of his army, arose and returned to the land of the Philistines.
Genesis 26:28-31
28
They said, "We see plainly that the LORD has been with you; so we said, 'Let there now be an oath between us, [even] between you and us, and let us make a covenant with you,
29
that you will do us no harm, just as we have not touched you and have done to you nothing but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of the LORD.'"
30
Then he made them a feast, and they ate and drank.
31
In the morning they arose early and exchanged oaths; then Isaac sent them away and they departed from him in peace.
1 Samuel 20:14-17
14
"If I am still alive, will you not show me the lovingkindness of the LORD, that I may not die?
15
"You shall not cut off your lovingkindness from my house forever, not even when the LORD cuts off every one of the enemies of David from the face of the earth."
16
So Jonathan made a [covenant] with the house of David, [saying], "May the LORD require [it] at the hands of David's enemies."
17
Jonathan made David vow again because of his love for him, because he loved him as he loved his own life.
a witness

Genesis 21:30
He said, "You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may be a witness to me, that I dug this well."
Deuteronomy 31:19
"Now therefore, write this song for yourselves, and teach it to the sons of Israel; put it on their lips, so that this song may be a witness for Me against the sons of Israel.
Deuteronomy 31:21
"Then it shall come about, when many evils and troubles have come upon them, that this song will testify before them as a witness (for it shall not be forgotten from the lips of their descendants); for I know their intent which they are developing today, before I have brought them into the land which I swore."
Deuteronomy 31:26
"Take this book of the law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may remain there as a witness against you.
Joshua 22:27
rather it shall be a witness between us and you and between our generations after us, that we are to perform the service of the LORD before Him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices and with our peace offerings, so that your sons will not say to our sons in time to come, "You have no portion in the LORD."'
Joshua 24:25-27
25
So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made for them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
26
And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God; and he took a large stone and set it up there under the oak that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.
27
Joshua said to all the people, "Behold, this stone shall be for a witness against us, for it has heard all the words of the LORD which He spoke to us; thus it shall be for a witness against you, so that you do not deny your God."
