 19:7
 19:8
19:8 God will [eventually] expand your borders, as He swore to your fathers, and He will give you all the territory that He promised them.
Ve'im-yarchiv Adonay Eloheycha et-gvulecha ka'asher nishba la'avoteycha venatan lecha et-kol-ha'arets asher diber latet la'avoteycha.



Commentary:

expand your borders
  In the Messianic age (Yad, Melakhim 11:2).

all the territory that He promised them
  This includes the lands of the Kenites, Kenizites and Kadmonites mentioned in Genesis 15:19 (Sifri; Yad, Rotze'ach 8:4). Some say that this is the land extending as far as the Euphrates (Genesis 15:18) (Bachya).
