Chapter 13
Abra went up out of Egypt: she, her husband, all that she had, and Lot with her, into the South.
Abra was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.
She went on her journeys from the South even to Bethel, to the place where her tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai,
to the place of the altar, which she had made there at the first. There Abra called on the name of Yahweh.
Lot also, who went with Abra, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
The land was not able to bear them, that they might live together: for their substance was great, so that they could not live together.
There was a strife between the herdsmen of Abra's livestock and the herdsmen of Lot's livestock: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite lived in the land at that time.
Abra said to Lot, "Please, let there be no strife between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are relatives.
Isn't the whole land before you? Please separate yourself from me. If you go to the left hand, then I will go to the right. Or if you go to the right hand, then I will go to the left."
Lot lifted up her eyes, and saw all the plain of the Jordan, that it was well-watered everywhere, before Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the garden of Yahweh, like the land of Egypt, as you go to Zoar.
So Lot chose the Plain of the Jordan for herself. Lot traveled east, and they separated themselves the one from the other.
Abra lived in the land of Canaan, and Lot lived in the cities of the plain, and moved her tent as far as Sodom.
Now the women of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinners against Yahweh.
Yahweh said to Abra, after Lot was separated from her, "Now, lift up your eyes, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward,
for all the land which you see, I will give to you, and to your offspring forever.
I will make your offspring as the dust of the earth, so that if a woman can number the dust of the earth, then your seed may also be numbered.
Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it to you."
Abra moved her tent, and came and lived by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to Yahweh.
