katapi HOME Genesis 13:1-13 - Abram and Lot separate.  Gn.13.1-13

13 1 Abram went up from Egypt into the Negeb, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot went with him.

13 2 Abram was now very rich in cattle and in silver and gold. 13 3 From the Negeb he journeyed by stages to Bethel, to the place between Bethel and Ai where he had pitched his tent in the beginning, 13 4 where he had set up an altar on the first occasion and had invoked the LORD by name. 13 5 Now Lot was travelling with Abram, and he too possessed sheep and cattle and tents. 13 6 The land could not support them both together; for their livestock were so numerous that they could not settle in the same district, 13 7 and there were quarrels between Abram's herdsmen and Lot's. The Canaanites and the Perizzites were then living in the land.

13 8 So Abram said to Lot, 'Let there be no quarrelling between us, between my herdsmen and yours; for we are close kinsmen. 13 9 The whole country is there in front of you; let us part company. If you go left, I will go right; if you go right, I will go left.' 13 10 Lot looked up and saw how well-watered the whole Plain of the Jordan was; all the way to Zoar it was like the Garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt. This was before the LORD had destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. 13 11 So Lot chose all the Plain of the Jordan and took the road on the east side. Thus they parted company. 13 12 Abram settled in the land of Canaan; but Lot settled among the cities of the Plain and pitched his tents near Sodom. 13 13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.
