a covenant, a treaty
a covenant (binding agreement)
Term for an agreement between two (or more) parties, such as a "last will and testament." In Jewish tradition, the covenant concept played an important role, and was translated as "testament," especially in Christian references to the scriptures of the "old covenant" ( OT) and the "new" ( NT).
