Genesis - Chapter: 13
|And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.
|And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
|And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;
|Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.
|And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
|And 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.
|And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
|And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.
|Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, 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.
|And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
|Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
|Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
|But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
|And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
|For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
|And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
|Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
|Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.
|Then Abram went vp from Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him toward the South.
|And Abram was very rich in cattell, in siluer and in golde.
|And 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,
|Vnto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the Name of the Lord.
|And Lot also, who went with Abram, had sheepe, and cattell and tentes,
|So that the land coulde not beare them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they coulde not dwell together.
|Also 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.)
|Then 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.
|Is 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.
|So 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)
|Then Lot chose vnto him all the plaine of Iorden, and tooke his iourney from the East: and they departed the one from the other.
|Abram dwelled in the lande of Canaan, and Lot abode in the cities of the plaine, and pitched his tent euen to Sodom.
|Now the men of Sodom were wicked and exceeding sinners against the Lord.
|Then 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:
|For all the land, which thou seest, will I giue vnto thee and to thy seede for euer,
|And 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.
|Arise, walke through the land, in ye length thereof, and breadth thereof: for I will giue it vnto thee.
|Then 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.
