Bereshis 13

1And Avram went up out of Mitzrayim, he, and his isha, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the Negev. 2And Avram was very rich in cattle, in kesef, and in zahav. 3And he went on his journeys from the Negev even to Beit-El, unto the makom where his ohel had been at the beginning, between Beit-El and Ai; 4Unto the makom of the Mizbe'ach, which he had built there at the first; and there Avram called on the Shem of Hashem. 5And Lot also, which walked with Avram, had tzon, and herds, and ohalim. 6And ha'aretz was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together; for their rechush was rav, so that they could not dwell together. 7And there was a riv between the ro'im of the herd of Avram and the ro'im of the herd of Lot; and the Kena'ani and the Perizzi dwelt then in ha'aretz. 8And Avram said unto Lot, Let there be no merivah now between me and thee, and between my ro'im and thy ro'im; for we are achim. 9Is not the kol ha'aretz before thee? Separate thyself, now, from me; if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. 10And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Yarden, that it was well watered everywhere, before Hashem destroyed Sodom and Amora, even as the Gan Hashem, like Eretz Mitzrayim, as you go to Tzoar. 11Then Lot chose for him all the plain of Yarden; and Lot journeyed mikedem (east); and they separated themselves the one from his brother. 12Avram dwelled in Eretz Kena'an, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his ohel toward Sodom. 13But the men of Sodom were ra'im and chatta'im before Hashem exceedingly. 14And Hashem said unto Avram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the makom where thou art northward, and southward and eastward, and westward: 15For kol ha'aretz which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy zera ad olam (forever). 16And I will make thy zera as the dust of ha'aretz; so that if a man can number the aphar of ha'aretz, then shall thy zera also be numbered. 17Arise, walk through ha'aretz in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. 18Then Avram moved his ohel, and came and dwelt in Elonei Mamre, which is in Chevron, and built there a Mizbe'ach unto Hashem.

1Then Abram went vp from Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him toward the South. 2And Abram was very rich in cattell, in siluer and in golde. 3And he went on his iourney from ye South toward Beth-el, to the place where his tent had bene at ye beginning, betweene Beth-el and Haai, 4Vnto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the Name of the Lord. 5And Lot also, who went with Abram, had sheepe, and cattell and tentes, 6So that the land coulde not beare them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they coulde not dwell together. 7Also there was debate betweene ye heardmen of Abrams cattell, and the heardmen of Lots cattell. (and the Canaanites and the Perizzites dwelled at that time in the land.) 8Then saide Abram vnto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, betweene thee and me, neither betweene mine heardmen and thine heardmen: for we be brethren. 9Is not the whole land before thee? depart I pray thee from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will goe to the right: or if thou goe to the right hand, then I will take the left. 10So when Lot lifted vp his eyes, he saw that all the plaine of Iorden was watered euery where: (for before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorah, it was as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou goest vnto Zoar) 11Then Lot chose vnto him all the plaine of Iorden, and tooke his iourney from the East: and they departed the one from the other. 12Abram dwelled in the lande of Canaan, and Lot abode in the cities of the plaine, and pitched his tent euen to Sodom. 13Now the men of Sodom were wicked and exceeding sinners against the Lord. 14Then the Lord saide vnto Abram, (after that Lot was departed from him) Lift vp thine eyes nowe, and looke from the place where thou art, Northward, and Southward, and Eastwarde, and Westward: 15For all the land, which thou seest, will I giue vnto thee and to thy seede for euer, 16And I will make thy seede, as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seede be numbred. 17Arise, walke through the land, in ye length thereof, and breadth thereof: for I will giue it vnto thee. 18Then Abram remoued his tent, and came and dwelled in the plaine of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and builded there an altar vnto ye Lord.
