13:1Then Abram departed out of Egypt, both he and his wife, & al that he had, and Lot with hym vnto the Southe.
13:2Abram was verye ryche in cattell, syluer, & golde.
13:3And he wente on hys iorney, from the South euen vnto Bethel, & to the place wher hys tent was at the fyrst tyme, betwene Bethel and Ap,
13:4and vnto the place of the aulter which he made before. And ther called Abram vpon the name of the Lorde.
13:5Lot also which went with him, had shepe, cattell, and tentes:
13:6so that the Land was not able to receyue them, that they myght dwell togither, for the substaunce of theyr riches was so greate, that they coulde not dwel togyther.
13:7And there fell a stryfe betwene the herdmen of Abrams cattell, and the herdmen of Lots cattell. Moreouer the Cananites & the Pheresytes dwelled at that tyme in the land.
13:8Then sayd Abram vnto Lot: Let there be no strife (I pray the) betwene the and me, and betwene my herdmen and thine, for we be brethren.
13:9Is not al the whole land before the? Departe I praye the fro me. If thou wilte take the lyfte hande, I wyll take the ryght: or if thou take the ryght hand I wyll take the lyfte.
13:10And Lot lyft vp hys eyes, and beheld al the contry about Iordane, whych was a plentuous contry of water euery wher, before the Lorde destroyed Sodome & Gomorha, euen as the garden of the Lorde, & as the Land of Egypt tyll thou come to Zoar.
13:11Then Lot chose al the costes of Iordane, and toke his iorney from the east. And so departed the one brother from the other.
13:12Abram dwelled in the lande of Canaan: & Lot in the cities of the playne, & tented tyll he came to Sodome.
13:13But the men of Sodome were wicked, & sinned exceadyngly against the Lord.
13:14And the Lorde sayd vnto Abraham, after that Lot was departed from hym: Lyfte vp thyne eyes, & loke from the place wher thou art, northward, southward, estward, & westward,
13:15for all the Lande whyche thou seest, wyl I gyue vnto the, & to thy sede for euer.
13:16And I wyll make thy sede, as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can numbre the duste of the earth, then shall thy sede also be numbred.
13:17Aryse, and walke about all the Lande, in the length of it, and in the bredth, for I wil giue it vnto them.
13:18Then Abram toke downe his tent & went & dwelled in the okegroue of Mamre which is in Hebron, and buylded there an aulter vnto the Lorde.

Matthew's Bible 1537

The Matthew Bible, also known as Matthew's Version, was first published in 1537 by John Rogers, under the pseudonym "Thomas Matthew". It combined the New Testament of William Tyndale, and as much of the Old Testament as he had been able to translate before being captured and put to death, with the translations of Myles Coverdale as to the balance of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha, except the Apocryphal Prayer of Manasses. It is thus a vital link in the main sequence of English Bible translations.
