Seeing as they were already in the Land of P'lishtim, why does the Torah write "Vayashuvu el Eretz P'lishtim"?


Ramban: The Pasuk means that they returned to their home-town in P'lishtim - G'ror, whereas Avraham lived in Be'er Sheva, which was situated in the valley of G'ror which was also in P'lishtim.


Seforno: Avimelech and Pichol went to visit Avraham in Be'er Sheva, where he had gone to tend to his sheep, in order to make a covenant with him - and Be'er Sheva is not in the Land of P'lishtim.
