Return to Genesis 13 (idea)

[Genesis 12|Previous Chapter] | [Genesis 14|Next Chapter]
13:1 And [Abram] went up out of [Egypt], he, and his [wife], and all that he had, and [Lot] with him, into [the south].
13:2 And Abram was [very rich in cattle], in [silver], and in [gold].
13:3 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]; 13:4 Unto the place of the [altar], which he had make there [at the first]: and there Abram called on [the name of the LORD].
13:5 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had [flock]s, and [herd]s, and [tent]s.
13:6 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].
13:7 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].
13:8 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].
13:9 [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].
13:10 And Lot lifted up his [eye]s, and beheld all the [plain] of [Jordan], that it was [well water]ed 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].
13:11 Then Lot chose him all [the plain of Jordan]; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
13:12 Abram dwelled in [the land] of [Canaan], and Lot dwelled in [the cities of the plain], and pitched his tent toward [Sodom].
13:13 But [the men of Sodom] were [wicked] and [sinners before the LORD] exceedingly.
13:14 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] [north]ward, and [south]ward, and [east]ward, and [west]ward: 13:15 For all the land which thou seest, [to thee will I give it], and to thy seed for ever.
13:16 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].
13:17 [Arise], walk through the land in [the length of it] and in [the breadth of it]; for [I will give it unto thee].
13:18 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].
