Chapter 13

1

And Abram goeth up from Egypt (he and his wife, and all that he hath, and Lot with him) towards the south;

2

and Abram is exceedingly wealthy in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

3

And he goeth on his journeyings from the south, even unto Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the commencement, between Bethel and Hai --

4

unto the place of the altar which he made there at the first, and there doth Abram preach in the name of Jehovah.

5

And also to Lot, who is going with Abram, there hath been sheep and oxen and tents;

6

and the land hath not suffered them to dwell together, for their substance hath been much, and they have not been able to dwell together;

7

and there is a strife between those feeding Abram`s cattle and those feeding Lot`s cattle; and the Canaanite and the Perizzite are then dwelling in the land.

8

And Abram saith unto Lot, `Let there not, I pray thee, be strife between me and thee, and between my shepherds and thy shepherds, for we are men -- brethren.

9

Is not all the land before thee? be parted, I pray thee, from me; if to the left, then I to the right; and if to the right, then I to the left.`

10

And Lot lifteth up his eyes, and seeth the whole circuit of the Jordan that it is all a watered country (before Jehovah`s destroying Sodom and Gomorrah, as Jehovah`s garden, as the land of Egypt,) in thy coming toward Zoar,

11

and Lot chooseth for himself the whole circuit of the Jordan; and Lot journeyeth from the east, and they are parted -- a man from his companion;

12

Abram hath dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot hath dwelt in the cities of the circuit, and tenteth unto Sodom;

13

and the men of Sodom are evil, and sinners before Jehovah exceedingly.

14

And Jehovah said unto Abram, after Lot`s being parted from him, `Lift up, I pray thee, thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art, northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward;

15

for the whole of the land which thou are seeing, to thee I give it, and to thy seed -- to the age.

16

And I have set thy seed as dust of the earth, so that, if one is able to number the dust of the earth, even thy seed is numbered;

17

rise, go up and down through the land, to its length, and to its breadth, for to thee I give it.`

18

And Abram tenteth, and cometh, and dwelleth among the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and buildeth there an altar to Jehovah.
