Why was the rite of circumcision given to Abraham by God and why was it instituted before Isaac was born?
In essence, they both amounted to self-confident actions and statements in how they would obey God. We also notice that God uses similar language in speaking to them. His words and agreements were nothing but true and uplifting.
