Genesis chapter 13

1
Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South.
2
Abram [was] very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.
3
And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai,
4
to the place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram called on the name of the LORD.
5
Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents.
6
Now the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together.
7
And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram's livestock and the herdsmen of Lot's livestock. The Canaanites and the Perizzites then dwelt in the land.
8
So Abram said to Lot, "Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we [are] brethren.
9
"[Is] not the whole land before you? Please separate from me. If [you take] the left, then I will go to the right; or, if [you go] to the right, then I will go to the left."
10
And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it [was] well watered everywhere (before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar.
11
Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.
12
Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched [his] tent even as far as Sodom.
13
But the men of Sodom [were] exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD.
14
And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: "Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are -- northward, southward, eastward, and westward;
15
"for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.
16
"And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, [then] your descendants also could be numbered.
17
"Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you."
18
Then Abram moved [his] tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which [are] in Hebron, and built an altar there to the LORD.

Genesis chapter 14

1
And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations,
2
[that] they made war with Bera king of Sodom, Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar).
3
All these joined together in the Valley of Siddim (that is, the Salt Sea).
4
Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.
5
In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer and the kings that [were] with him came and attacked the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim, the Zuzim in Ham, the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
6
and the Horites in their mountain of Seir, as far as El Paran, which [is] by the wilderness.
7
Then they turned back and came to En Mishpat (that [is,] Kadesh), and attacked all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who dwelt in Hazezon Tamar.
8
And the king of Sodom, the king of Gomorrah, the king of Admah, the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that [is,] Zoar) went out and joined together in battle in the Valley of Siddim
9
against Chedorlaomer king of Elam, Tidal king of nations, Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar -- four kings against five.
10
Now the Valley of Siddim [was full of] asphalt pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled; [some] fell there, and the remainder fled to the mountains.
11
Then they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way.
12
They also took Lot, Abram's brother's son who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
13
Then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew, for he dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner; and they [were] allies with Abram.
14
Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained [servants] who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.
15
He divided his forces against them by night, and he and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which [is] north of Damascus.
16
So he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people.
17
And the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that [is,] the King's Valley), after his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who [were] with him.
18
Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he [was] the priest of God Most High.
19
And he blessed him and said: "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth;
20
And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." And he gave him a tithe of all.
21
Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself."
22
But Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth,
23
"that I [will take] nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that [is] yours, lest you should say, 'I have made Abram rich' --
24
"except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion."

Genesis chapter 15

1
After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I [am] your shield, your exceedingly great reward."
2
But Abram said, "Lord GOD, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house [is] Eliezer of Damascus?"
3
Then Abram said, "Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!"
4
And behold, the word of the LORD [came] to him, saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir."
5
Then He brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them." And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be."
6
And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.
7
Then He said to him, "I [am] the LORD, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it."
8
And he said, "Lord GOD, how shall I know that I will inherit it?"
9
So He said to him, "Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon."
10
Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two.
11
And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
12
Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror [and] great darkness fell upon him.
13
Then He said to Abram: "Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land [that is] not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.
14
"And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.
15
"Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age.
16
"But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites [is] not yet complete."
17
And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces.
18
On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: "To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates --
19
"the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites,
20
"the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
21
"the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
