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.
