1 H87 And Abram H5927 [H8799] returned H4714 from Egypt H802 , he, and his wife H3876 , and all that he had, and Lot H5045 with him, into the south.
2 H87 And Abram H3966 was very H3513 [H8804] rich H4735 in cattle H3701 , in silver H2091 , and in gold.
3 H3212 [H8799] And he went H4550 on his journeys H5045 from the south H1008 even to Bethel H4725 , to the place H168 where his tent H1961 [H8804] had been H8462 at the beginning H1008 , between Bethel H5857 and Ai;
4 H4725 To the place H4196 of the altar H6213 [H8804] , which he had made H7223 there at the first H87 : and there Abram H7121 [H8799] called H8034 on the name H3068 of the LORD.
5 H3876 And Lot H1980 [H8802] also, who went H854 with H87 Abram H6629 , had flocks H1241 , and herds H168 , and tents.
6 H776 And the land H5375 [H8804] was not able to bear H3427 [H8800] them, that they might dwell H3162 together H7399 : for their substance H7227 was great H3201 [H8804] , so that they could H3427 [H8800] not dwell H3162 together.
7 H7379 And there was a strife H7462 [H8802] between the herdmen H87 of Abram's H4735 cattle H7462 [H8802] and the herdmen H3876 of Lot's H4735 cattle H3669 : and the Canaanite H6522 and the Perizzite H3427 [H8802] dwelt H776 then in the land.
8 H87 And Abram H559 [H8799] said H3876 to Lot H1961 [H8799] , Let there be H408 no H4808 strife H7462 [H8802] , I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen H7462 [H8802] and thy herdmen H582 ; for we H251 are brethren.
9 H776 Is not the whole land H6440 before thee H6504 [H8734] ? separate thyself H8040 , I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand H3231 [H8686] , then I will go to the right H3225 ; or if thou wilt depart to the right hand H8041 [H8686] , then I will go to the left.
10 H3876 And Lot H5375 [H8799] lifted up H5869 his eyes H7200 [H8799] , and beheld H3603 all the plain H3383 of Jordan H4945 , that it was well watered H6440 every where, before H3068 the LORD H7843 [H8763] destroyed H5467 Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H1588 , even as the garden H3068 of the LORD H776 , like the land H4714 of Egypt H935 [H8800] , as thou comest H6820 to Zoar.
11 H3876 Then Lot H977 [H8799] chose H3603 for himself all the plain H3383 of Jordan H3876 ; and Lot H5265 [H8799] journeyed H6924 east H6504 [H8735] : and they separated themselves H376 the one H251 from the other.
12 H87 Abram H3427 [H8804] dwelt H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan H3876 , and Lot H3427 [H8804] dwelt H5892 in the cities H3603 of the plain H167 [H8799] , and pitched his tent H5704 toward H5467 Sodom.
13 H582 But the men H5467 of Sodom H7451 were wicked H2400 and sinners H3068 before the LORD H3966 exceedingly.
14 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8804] said H87 to Abram H310 , after H3876 Lot H6504 [H8736] was separated H5375 [H8798] from him, Lift up H5869 now thine eyes H7200 [H8798] , and look H4725 from the place H6828 where thou art northward H5045 , and southward H6924 , and eastward H3220 , and westward:
15 H776 For all the land H7200 [H8802] which thou seest H5414 [H8799] , to thee will I give it H2233 , and to thy seed H5704 for H5769 ever.
16 H7760 [H8804] And I will make H2233 thy seed H6083 as the dust H776 of the earth H834 : so that H376 if a man H3201 [H8799] can H4487 [H8800] number H6083 the dust H776 of the earth H2233 , then shall thy seed H4487 [H8735] also be numbered.
17 H6965 [H8798] Arise H1980 [H8690] , walk H776 through the land H753 in the length H7341 of it and in the breadth H5414 [H8799] of it; for I will give it to thee.
