רכושם. מקנה וכן כי היה רכושם רב: THEIR SUBSTANCE. Their cattle.6The term used by Ibn Ezra is mikneh, which includes cows, sheep, asses and camels. Rekhusham (their substance) in And the land was not able to bear them…for their (rekhusham) substance (i.e., their cattle) was great (Gen. 13:6) is similar.
ואת הנפש. עבדים ילידי בית. או עשו. כמו קנו. וכן עשה לי את החיל הזה. ויש אומרים הנפשות שהורם האמת לעבוד את השם. AND THE SOULS THAT THEY HAD GOTTEN IN HARAN. Servants born into their household.7Had gotten thus means: were born to them (Weiser). It is also possible that had gotten means bought.8Previously Ibn Ezra explained gotten as meaning born. He now explains it to mean bought (Weiser). Hath gotten in My power and the might of my hand hath gotten me this wealth (Deut. 8:17) is similar. Others say that the souls that they had gotten in Haran refers to the people to whom Abraham showed the truth, to worship God.9Bereshit Rabbah 39:14. Cf. Rashi.
וטעם ויצאו ללכת. אל המקום אשר אמר השם: [AND THEY WENT FORTH TO GO.] To the place that God had told them to go.
