Yigal has given you a good answer. If I may add: Abraham has just hijacked
the spoils of the conflict of five kings against four. As the magnitude of
what he has done sinks in, he fears for his life and the lives of his small
band of 318 Security men (14:14).
God's response is to "Cut the Covenant" with him (15:1-21).
