Genesis 13

13
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.

Genesis 13

13
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.
