Why did Avraham use the word "Anochi" and not 'Ani'?


Seforno: He was saying that he (Avraham) undertook to take the required oath to do kindness (even on behalf of his children)


Oznayim la'Torah: Ya'akov, at the end of Vayeitzei, did likewise with Lavan.


See Oznayim la'Torah, who explains as to why Avraham and Ya'akov entered into their respective agreements, despite the fact that the Chachamim forbade entering into a partnership with a Nochri lest he end up swearing by his god.
