Genesis 13


Abram and Lot Part

1[3ascended 1And 2Abram] from out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all of his, and Lot with him, into the wilderness. 2And Abram was [2rich 1exceedingly] in cattle, and silver, and gold. 3And he went from where he came into the wilderness, unto Beth-el, unto the place where [3was 1his tent 2formerly], between Beth-el and between Hai; 4unto the place of the altar which he made there at the beginning. And [2called upon 6there 1Abram 3the 4name 5of the  lord]. 5And to Lot, the one going forth with Abram, was sheep, and oxen, and cattle. 6And [3did not 4have space 5for them 1the 2land] to dwell together, for [2were 1their possessions] many, and they were not able to dwell together. 7And there was a battle between the herdsmen of the cattle of Abram, and between the herdsmen of the cattle of Lot. And the Canaanites and the Perizzites then inhabited the land. 8[3said 1And 2Abram] to Lot, Do not let there be a battle between me and you, and between your herdsmen and between my herdsmen! for [2men 4brothers 3are 1we]. 9[3not 1Behold 4all 5the 6earth 7before 8you 2is]? Part yourself from me! If you go to the left, I will go to the right; but if you go to the right, I will go to the left. 10And Lot, lifting up his eyes, looked upon all the place round about the Jordan, that all was watered (before the eradicating by God of Sodom and Gomorrah) as the paradise of God, and as the land of Egypt unto coming into Zoar. 11And Lot chose to himself all the place round about the Jordan. And Lot departed from the east. And they were parted, each from his brother. 12And Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in a city of the place round about, and he pitched a tent in Sodom. 13But the men in Sodom were wicked and sinners before God, exceedingly.

God Promises Land

14 And God said to Abram, after Lot parted from him, Look up with your eyes, and behold from the place which [3now 1you 2are], to the north and south, and east, and west! 15That all the land which you see, [3to you 1I will give 2it], and to your seed, unto the eon. 16And I will make your seed as the sand of the earth. If [2is able 1anyone] to count out the sand of the earth, then [2your seed 1they shall count out]. 17In rising up, you travel through the land unto both the length of it and unto the width; for to you I shall give it, and to your seed, into the eon. 18And moving his tent, Abram came and dwelt around the oak of Mamre, which was in Hebron. And he built there an altar to the  lord.
