Bereshis 13

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.

Abram Inherits Canaan
1Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and #Gen. 12:4; 14:12, 16Lot with him, #Gen. 12:9to the South. 2#Gen. 24:35; 26:14; Ps. 112:3; Prov. 10:22Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. 3And he went on his journey #Gen. 12:8, 9from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4to the #Gen. 12:7, 8; 21:33place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram #Ps. 116:17called on the name of the Lord.
5Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. 6Now #Gen. 36:7the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. 7And there was #Gen. 26:20strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. #Gen. 12:6; 15:20, 21The Canaanites and the Perizzites then dwelt in the land.
8So Abram said to Lot, #1 Cor. 6:7; (Phil. 2:14, 15)“Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. 9#Gen. 20:15; 34:10Is not the whole land before you? Please #Gen. 13:11, 14separate from me. #(Rom. 12:18)If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.”
10And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all #Gen. 19:17–29; Deut. 34:3the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before the Lord #Gen. 19:24destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) #Gen. 2:8, 10; Is. 51:3like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt as you go toward #Gen. 14:2, 8; 19:22; Deut. 34:3Zoar. 11Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. 12Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot #Gen. 19:24, 25, 29dwelt in the cities of the plain and #Gen. 14:12; 19:1pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13But the men of Sodom #Gen. 18:20, 21; Ezek. 16:49; 2 Pet. 2:7, 8were exceedingly wicked and #Gen. 6:11; 39:9; Num. 32:23sinful against the Lord.
14And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot #Gen. 13:11had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—#Gen. 28:14northward, southward, eastward, and westward; 15for all the land which you see #Gen. 12:7; 13:17; 15:7, 18; 17:8; Deut. 34:4; Acts 7:5I give to you and #2 Chr. 20:7; Ps. 37:22your descendants forever. 16And #Gen. 22:17; Ex. 32:13; Num. 23:10I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. 17Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”
18#Gen. 26:17Then Abram moved his tent, and went and #Gen. 14:13dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, #Gen. 23:2; 35:27which are in Hebron, and built an #Gen. 8:20; 22:8, 9altar there to the Lord.
