Genesis 13

Genesis 13:1  
And Abram went up out of Egypt with his wife and all he had, and Lot with him, and they came in to the South.

Genesis 13:2  
Now Abram had great wealth of cattle and silver and gold.

Genesis 13:3  
And travelling on from the South, he came to Beth-el, to the place where his tent had been before, between Beth-el and Ai;

Genesis 13:4  
To the place where he had made his first altar, and there Abram gave worship to the name of the Lord.

Genesis 13:5  
And Lot, who went with him, had flocks and herds and tents;

Genesis 13:6  
So that the land was not wide enough for the two of them: their property was so great that there was not room for them together.

Genesis 13:7  
And there was an argument between the keepers of Abram's cattle and the keepers of Lot's cattle: at that time the Canaanites and Perizzites were still living in the land.

Genesis 13:8  
Then Abram said to Lot, Let there be no argument between me and you, and between my herdmen and your herdmen, for we are brothers.

Genesis 13:9  
Is not all the land before you? then let us go our separate ways: if you go to the left, I will go to the right; or if you take the right, I will go to the left.

Genesis 13:10  
And Lot, lifting up his eyes and looking an the valley of Jordan, saw that it was well watered everywhere, before the Lord had sent destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah; it was like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, on the way to Zoar.

Genesis 13:11  
So Lot took for himself all the valley of Jordan, and went to the east, and they were parted from one another.

Genesis 13:12  
Abram went on living in the land of Canaan, and Lot went to the lowland towns, moving his tent as far as Sodom.

Genesis 13:13  
Now the men of Sodom were evil, and great sinners before the Lord.

Genesis 13:14  
And the Lord had said to Abram, after Lot was parted from him, From this place where you are take a look to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west:

Genesis 13:15  
For all the land which you see I will give to you and to your seed for ever.

Genesis 13:16  
And I will make your children like the dust of the earth, so that if the dust of the earth may be numbered, then will your children be numbered.

Genesis 13:17  
Come, go through all the land from one end to the other for I will give it to you.

Genesis 13:18  
And Abram, moving his tent, came and made his living-place by the holy tree of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and made an altar there to the Lord.
