Genesis 13

13
Abram and Lot Separate
1Abram left Egypt with his wife and everything he had and went to the Negev. Lot was with him. 2Abram was very rich because he had livestock, silver, and gold. 3He traveled from place to place. He went from the Negev as far as Bethel, to the area between Bethel and Ai where his tent had been originally, 4where he had first made an altar. There Abram worshiped the Lord.
5Lot, who had been traveling with Abram, also had his own sheep, cattle, and tents. 6There wasn’t enough pastureland for both of them. They had so many possessions that they were unable to remain together. 7Quarrels broke out between Abram’s herders and Lot’s herders. (Canaanites and Perizzites were also living in that area.)
8Abram said to Lot, “Please, let’s not have any more quarrels between us or between our herders. After all, we’re relatives. 9Isn’t all this land yours also? Let’s separate. If you go to the left, I’ll go to the right, and if you go to the right, I’ll go to the left.” 10Then Lot looked in the direction of Zoar as far as he could see. He saw that the whole Jordan Plain was well-watered like the Lord’s garden or like Egypt. (This was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
11Lot chose the whole Jordan Plain for himself. He moved toward the east. They each went their own way. 12Abram lived in Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain, moving his tents as far as Sodom. 13(The people who lived in Sodom were very wicked. They committed terrible sins against the Lord.)
The LORD’s Third Promise to Abram
14After Lot left, the Lord said to Abram, “Look north, south, east, and west of where you are. 15I will give all the land you see to you and to your descendants for an indefinite period of time. 16I will also give you as many descendants as the dust of the earth. If anyone could count the dust of the earth, then he could also count your descendants. 17Go! Walk back and forth across the entire land because I will give it to you.” 18So Abram moved his tents and went to live by the oak trees belonging to Mamre at Hebron. There he built an altar for the Lord.

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).
