1 H3117 And it came to pass in the days H569 of Amraphel H4428 king H8152 of Shinar H746 , Arioch H4428 king H495 of Ellasar H3540 , Chedorlaomer H4428 king H5867 of Elam H8413 , and Tidal H4428 king H1471 of nations;
2 H6213 [H8804] That these made H4421 war H854 with H1298 Bera H4428 king H5467 of Sodom H1306 , and with Birsha H4428 king H6017 of Gomorrah H8134 , Shinab H4428 king H126 of Admah H8038 , and Shemeber H4428 king H6636 of Zeboiim H4428 , and the king H1106 of Bela H1931 , which is H6820 Zoar.
3 H2266 [H8804] All these were joined together H6010 in the vale H7708 of Siddim H1931 , which H4417 is the salt H3220 sea.
4 H6240 H8147 Twelve H8141 years H5647 H853 [H8804] they served H3540 Chedorlaomer H7969 H6240 , and in the thirteenth H8141 year H4775 [H8804] they rebelled.
5 H6240 H702 And in the fourteenth H8141 year H935 [H8804] came H3540 Chedorlaomer H4428 , and the kings H5221 [H8686] that were with him, and smote H7497 the Rephaims H6255 in Ashteroth Karnaim H2104 , and the Zuzims H1990 in Ham H368 , and the Emims H7741 in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
6 H2752 And the Horites H2042 in their mount H8165 Seir H364 , to Elparan H5921 , which is by H4057 the wilderness.
7 H7725 [H8799] And they returned H935 [H8799] , and came H413 to H5880 Enmishpat H6946 , which is Kadesh H5221 [H8686] , and smote H7704 all the country H6003 of the Amalekites H567 , and also the Amorites H3427 [H8802] , that dwelt H2688 in Hazezontamar.
8 H3318 [H8799] And there went out H4428 the king H5467 of Sodom H4428 , and the king H6017 of Gomorrah H4428 , and the king H126 of Admah H4428 , and the king H6636 of Zeboiim H4428 , and the king H1106 of Bela H1931 (the same H6820 is Zoar H6186 [H8799] ;) and they joined H4421 battle H6010 with them in the vale H7708 of Siddim;
9 H3540 With Chedorlaomer H4428 the king H5867 of Elam H8413 , and with Tidal H4428 king H1471 of nations H569 , and Amraphel H4428 king H8152 of Shinar H746 , and Arioch H4428 king H495 of Ellasar H702 ; four H4428 kings H2568 with five.
10 H6010 And the vale H7708 of Siddim H875 was full of H875 H2564 slimepits H4428 ; and the kings H5467 of Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H5127 [H8799] fled H5307 [H8799] , and fell H7604 [H8737] there; and they that remained H5127 [H8804] fled H2022 to the mountain.
11 H3947 [H8799] And they took H7399 all the goods H5467 of Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H400 , and all their food H3212 [H8799] , and went their way.
12 H3947 [H8799] And they took H3876 Lot H87 , Abram's H251 brother's H1121 son H3427 [H8802] , who dwelt H5467 in Sodom H7399 , and his goods H3212 [H8799] , and departed.
13 H935 [H8799] And there came H6412 one that had escaped H5046 [H8686] , and told H87 Abram H5680 the Hebrew H7931 [H8802] ; for he dwelt H436 in the plain H4471 of Mamre H567 the Amorite H251 , brother H812 of Eshcol H251 , and brother H6063 of Aner H1167 H1285 : and these were confederate H87 with Abram.
14 H87 And when Abram H8085 [H8799] heard H251 that his brother H7617 [H8738] was taken captive H7324 [H8686] , he armed H2593 his trained H3211 servants, born H1004 in his own house H7969 , three H3967 hundred H6240 H8083 and eighteen H7291 [H8799] , and pursued H1835 them to Dan.
15 H2505 [H8735] And he divided H5650 his men against them, he and his servants H3915 , by night H5221 [H8686] , and smote H7291 [H8799] them, and pursued H2327 them to Hobah H8040 , which is on the left hand H1834 of Damascus.
16 H7725 [H8686] And he brought back H7399 all the goods H7725 [H8689] , and also brought again H251 his brother H3876 Lot H7399 , and his goods H802 , and the women H5971 also, and the people.
17 H4428 And the king H5467 of Sodom H3318 [H8799] went out H7125 [H8800] to meet H310 him after H7725 [H8800] his return H5221 [H8687] from the slaughter H3540 of Chedorlaomer H4428 , and of the kings H6010 that were with him, at the valley H7740 of Shaveh H1931 , which H4428 is the king's H6010 dale.
18 H4442 And Melchizedek H4428 king H8004 of Salem H3318 [H8689] brought forth H3899 bread H3196 and wine H3548 : and he was the priest H5945 of the most high H410 God.
19 H1288 [H8762] And he blessed H559 [H8799] him, and said H1288 [H8803] , Blessed H87 be Abram H5945 of the most high H410 God H7069 [H8802] , possessor H8064 of heaven H776 and earth:
20 H1288 [H8803] And blessed H5945 be the most high H410 God H4042 [H8765] , who hath delivered H6862 thy enemies H3027 into thy hand H5414 [H8799] . And he gave H4643 him tithes of all.
21 H4428 And the king H5467 of Sodom H559 [H8799] said H87 to Abram H5414 [H8798] , Give H5315 me the persons H3947 [H8798] , and take H7399 the goods to thyself.
22 H87 And Abram H559 [H8799] said H4428 to the king H5467 of Sodom H7311 [H8689] , I have lifted H3027 my hand H3068 to the LORD H5945 , the most high H410 God H7069 [H8802] , the possessor H8064 of heaven H776 and earth,
23 H518 That I will not H2339 take from a thread H5275 H8288 even to a shoelatchet H518 , and that I will not H3947 [H8799] take H559 [H8799] any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say H6238 0 , I have made H87 Abram H6238 [H8689] rich:
