Genesis 13

13
1And Abram went up out of Egypt: he and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.
2And he was very rich in possession of gold and silver.
3And he returned by the way that he came, from the south to Bethel, to the place where before he had pitched his tent between Bethel and Hai:
4In the place of the altar which he had made before. And there he called upon the name of the Lord.
5But Lot also, who was with Abram, had flocks of sheep, and herds of beasts, and tents.
6Neither was the land able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, and they could not dwell together.
7Whereupon also there arose a strife between the herdsmen of Abram and of Lot. And at that time the Chanaanite and the Pherezite dwelled in that country.
8Abram therefore said to Lot: Let there be no quarrel, I beseech thee, between me and thee, and between my herdsmen and thy herdsmen: for we are brethren.
9Behold, the whole land is before thee: depart from me I pray thee. If thou wilt go to the left hand, I will take the right: if thou choose the right hand, I will pass to the left.
10And Lot, lifting up his eyes, saw all the country about the Jordan, which was watered throughout, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha, as the paradise of the Lord, and like Egypt as one comes to Segor.
11And Lot chose to himself the country about the Jordan, and he departed from the east: and they were separated one brother from the other.
12Abram dwelt in the land of Chanaan; and Lot abode in the towns that were about the Jordan, and dwelt in Sodom.
13And the men of Sodom were very wicked, and sinners before the face of the Lord, beyond measure.
14And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot was separated from him: Lift up thy eyes, and look from the place wherein thou now art, to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west.
15All the land which thou seest, I will give to thee, and to thy seed for ever.
16And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: if any man be able to number the dust of the earth, he shall be able to number thy seed also.
17Arise and walk through the land in the length, and in the breadth thereof: for I will give it to thee.
18So Abram removing his tent came and dwelt by the vale of Mambre, which is in Hebron: and he built there an altar to the Lord.

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.
