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.

Genesis 13

Abram and Lot
1So Abram went up from Egypt to the #I.e., South countryNegev, he and his wife and all that belonged to him, and Lot with him.
2Now Abram was very rich in livestock, silver, and gold. 3And he went #Lit by his stageson his journeys from the #I.e., South countryNegev as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4to the place of the altar which he had made there previously; and there Abram called on the name of the Lord. 5Now Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks, herds, and tents. 6And the land could not #Lit bearsupport both of them #Lit to livewhile living together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to remain together. 7And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. Now the Canaanites and the Perizzites were living in the land at that time.
8So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, nor between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are relatives! 9Is the entire land not before you? Please separate from me; if you choose the left, then I will go to the right; or if you choose the right, then I will go to the left.” 10Lot raised his eyes and saw all the #Lit circlevicinity of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere—this was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah—like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt #Lit as you gogoing toward Zoar. 11So Lot chose for himself all the #Lit circlevicinity of the Jordan, and Lot journeyed eastward. So they separated from each other. 12Abram #Lit dweltsettled in the land of Canaan, while Lot #Lit dweltsettled in the cities of the #Lit circlevicinity of the Jordan, and moved his tents as far as Sodom. 13Now the men of Sodom were #Lit wicked and sinners exceedinglyexceedingly wicked sinners against the Lord.
14The Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, “Now raise your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward, and eastward and westward; 15for all the land which you see I will give to you and to your #Lit seeddescendants forever. 16I will make your #Lit seeddescendants as plentiful as the dust of the earth, so that if anyone can count the dust of the earth, then your #Lit seeddescendants could also be counted. 17Arise, walk about in the land through its length and width; for I will give it to you.” 18Then Abram moved his tent and came and lived by the #Or terebinthsoaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron; and there he built an altar to the Lord.
