21:22 Sixth Reading
Around that time, Abimelekh and his general Pikhol made a declaration to Abraham, saying, 'God is with you in all that you do.
Vayehi ba'et hahi vayomer Avimelech uFichol sar-tseva'o el-Avraham lemor Elohim imecha bechol asher-atah oseh.



Commentary:

Pikhol
  According to some, this is a title rather than a proper name (see Bereshith Rabbah 54). In ancient Egyptian, Pakhel means 'the spokesman.'

God is with you
  See Genesis 26:28.
