The Book of Genesis
King James Version
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.
013:002 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
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;
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.
013:005 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
013:011 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed
east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
013:012 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the
cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
013:013 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD
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
013:015 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and
to thy seed for ever.
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.
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.
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
