Genesis 13

13
1And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) went up out of Mitzrayim [Egypt] he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot (Covering) with him, into the south.
2And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) [was] very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
3And he went on his journeys from the south even to Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God), unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beit-El (The House of the Powerful One) and ‘‘Ai [Heap of Ruins] (ruin);
4Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) called on the name of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
5And Lot (Covering) also, which went with Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), had flocks, and herds, and tents.
6And the land was not able to bear them that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.
7And there was a strife between the herdsmen of Avram’s (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) cattle and the herdsman of Lot’s (Covering) cattle: and the Kena’ani (merchants; traders; or those that humble and subdue) and the P’rizi dwelled then in the land.
8And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) said unto Lot (Covering), Let there be no strife, I pray youi, between me and youi, and between my herdsman and youri herdsman; for we [be] brethren.
9 [Is] not the whole land before youi? separate thyself, I pray youi, from me: if youi [will take] the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if youi [depart] to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
10And Lot (Covering) lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Yarden (The Descender, Descending), that it [was] well watered everywhere, before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) destroyed S’dom (burning, denotes penal constrictions around the ankles) and ‘Amora (submersion, Tyrants, bind sheaves, People of Fear), [even] as the garden of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), like the land of Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land), as youi come unto Tzo’ar (little place).
11Then Lot (Covering) chose him all the plain of Yarden (The Descender, Descending); and Lot (Covering) journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
12Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) dwelled in the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues), and Lot (Covering) dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched [his] tent toward S’dom (burning, denotes penal constrictions around the ankles).
13But the men of S’dom (burning, denotes penal constrictions around the ankles) [were] wicked and sinners before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) exceedingly.
14And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), after that Lot (Covering) was separated from him, Lift up now youri eyes, and look from the place where youi are northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
15For all the land which youi see, to youi will I give it, and to youri seed forever.
16And I will make youri seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, [then] shall youri seed also be numbered.
17Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto youi.
18Then Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) removed [his] tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre (firmness; fatling (fat cattle) offering), which [is] in Hevron (Place/Town Of Alliance), and built there an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).

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.
