Genesis 13
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Abram came up from Egypt, he and his wife, and everything that he had, and Lot with him to the south.

2And Abram was very rich in cattle and in silver and in gold. 3And he went on to his journey from the south and unto BaythEil, as far as to the place where he had pitched his tent at the first, between BaythEil and Ai; 4To the place of the altar that he had made there at the first, and Abram called there on the Name of LORD JEHOVAH. 5And also Lot, who went with Abram there, had sheep and oxen and tents in great abundance. 6And that land was not sustaining them to dwell together because their cattle were very abundant, and they were not able to dwell together. 7And there was strife among the herdsmen of the cattle of Abram between the herdsmen of the cattle of Lot, and the Canaanites and the Perizzites were still dwelling in the land.

8And Abram said to Lot, “There will not be strife between me and you and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen because we men are brothers. 9Behold, all the land is before you. Separate from me; if you are to the right, I am to the left, and if you are to the left, I am to the right.”

10And Lot lifted his eyes and he saw all the land of Jordan, that all the place was watered, before LORD JEHOVAH would destroy Sadom and Amora, as the Paradise of God and like the land of Egypt that was in the entrance of Zoan. 11And Lot chose for himself all the land of Jordan and Lot picked up from the East and they parted, each man from his brother. 12Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan and Lot dwelt in the villages that were around, and he possessed as far as Sadom. 13And men of Sadom were evil and great sinners before LORD JEHOVAH.

14And LORD JEHOVAH said to Abram after Lot parted from him: “Lift your eyes and see from the place where you are to the north and to the south and to the east and to the west: 15Because all the land that you see, to you I shall give it and to your seed unto eternity. 16And I shall make him, your seed, as the dust of the Earth so that if you can count the dust of the Earth, your seed also will be counted. 17Arise; walk in the land to its length and to its width because to you I shall give it.” 18And Abram came and entered and sat down among the oaks of Mamrey the Amorite, which is in Khebron, and he built there an altar to LORD JEHOVAH.
