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).

1And Abram goeth up from Egypt (he and his wife, and all that he hath, and Lot with him) towards the south;
2and Abram [is] exceedingly wealthy in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
3And he goeth on his journeyings from the south, even unto Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the commencement, between Bethel and Hai —
4unto the place of the altar which he made there at the first, and there doth Abram preach in the name of Jehovah.
5And also to Lot, who is going with Abram, there hath been sheep and oxen and tents;
6and the land hath not suffered them to dwell together, for their substance hath been much, and they have not been able to dwell together;
7and there is a strife between those feeding Abram's cattle and those feeding Lot's cattle; and the Canaanite and the Perizzite [are] then dwelling in the land.
8And Abram saith unto Lot, ‘Let there not, I pray thee, be strife between me and thee, and between my shepherds and thy shepherds, for we [are] men — brethren.
9Is not all the land before thee? be parted, I pray thee, from me; if to the left, then I to the right; and if to the right, then I to the left.’
10And Lot lifteth up his eyes, and seeth the whole circuit of the Jordan that it [is] all a watered country (before Jehovah's destroying Sodom and Gomorrah, as Jehovah's garden, as the land of Egypt,) in thy coming toward Zoar,
11and Lot chooseth for himself the whole circuit of the Jordan; and Lot journeyeth from the east, and they are parted — a man from his companion;
12Abram hath dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot hath dwelt in the cities of the circuit, and tenteth unto Sodom;
13and the men of Sodom [are] evil, and sinners before Jehovah exceedingly.
14And Jehovah said unto Abram, after Lot's being parted from him, ‘Lift up, I pray thee, thine eyes, and look from the place where thou [art], northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward;
15for the whole of the land which thou are seeing, to thee I give it, and to thy seed — to the age.
16And I have set thy seed as dust of the earth, so that, if one is able to number the dust of the earth, even thy seed is numbered;
17rise, go up and down through the land, to its length, and to its breadth, for to thee I give it.’
18And Abram tenteth, and cometh, and dwelleth among the oaks of Mamre, which [are] in Hebron, and buildeth there an altar to Jehovah.
