001:013:001
And Abram went up out of Egypt,
he,
and his wife,
and all that he had,
and Lot with him,
into the south.


001:013:002
And Abram was very rich in cattle,
in silver,
and in gold.


001:013:003
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;


001:013:004
Unto the place of the altar,
which he had make there at the first:
and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.


001:013:005
And Lot also,
which went with Abram,
had flocks,
and herds,
and tents.


001:013:006
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.


001:013:007
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.


001:013:008
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.


001:013:009
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.


001:013:010
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.


001:013:011
Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan;
and Lot journeyed east:
and they separated themselves the one from the other.


001:013:012
Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan,
and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain,
and pitched his tent toward Sodom.


001:013:013
But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.


001:013:014
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:


001:013:015
For all the land which thou seest,
to thee will I give it,
and to thy seed for ever.


001:013:016
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.


001:013:017
Arise,
walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it;
for I will give it unto thee.


001:013:018
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.
