14/9/17 Covenant


The term covenant may be used as a noun or as a verb. In most of the texts written in English by Spanish-speaking people, I see they use “covenant” as a noun only, so I thought this could be useful:

  1. a binding agreement; contract


  1. an agreement in writing under seal, as to pay a stated annual sum to a charity
  2. a particular clause in such an agreement, especially in a lease
  3. (in early English law) an action in which damages were sought for breach of a sealed agreement


  1. to agree to a covenant

In the following e-Legal Lessons, we will analyze many of the classifications of covenants.
