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 and Lot
1So Abram went up out of Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot [his nephew] with him, into the Negev (the South country of Judah).
2Now Abram was extremely rich in livestock and in silver and in gold. 3He journeyed on from the Negev as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4where he had first built an altar; and there Abram called on the name of the Lord [in prayer]. 5But Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents. 6Now the land was not able to support them [that is, sustain all their grazing and water needs] while they lived near one another, for their possessions were too great for them to stay together. 7And there was strife and quarreling between the herdsmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdsmen of Lot’s cattle. Now the Canaanite and the Perizzite were living in the land at that same time [making grazing of the livestock difficult].
8So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife and disagreement between you and me, nor between your herdsmen and my herdsmen, because we are relatives. 9Is not the entire land before you? Please separate [yourself] from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or if you choose the right, then I will go to the left.” 10So Lot looked and saw that the valley of the Jordan was well watered everywhere—this was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah; [it was all] like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as you go to Zoar [at the south end of the Dead Sea]. 11Then Lot chose for himself all the valley of the Jordan, and he traveled east. So they separated from each other. 12Abram settled in the land of Canaan, and Lot settled in the cities of the valley and camped as far as Sodom and lived there. 13But the men of Sodom were extremely wicked and sinful against the Lord [unashamed in their open sin before Him].
14The Lord said to Abram, after Lot had left him, “Now lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are standing, northward and southward and eastward and westward; 15for all the land which you see I will give to you and to your descendants forever. 16I will make your descendants [as numerous] as the dust of the earth, so that if a man could count the [grains of] dust of the earth, then your descendants could also be counted. 17Arise, walk (make a thorough reconnaissance) around in the land, through its length and its width, for I will give it to you.” 18Then Abram broke camp and moved his tent, and came and settled by the [grove of the great] terebinths (oak trees) of Mamre [the Amorite], which are in Hebron, and there he built an altar to [honor] the Lord.
