And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.…
1. Effect of increase of substance. The keeping a cause of perplexity. Not room in the land. If poverty has its cares, so has wealth.
2. The herdsmen jealous for their respective masters. Such carefulness commendable. Not very common.
3. They would have done well to have seen their masters before they quarrelled. Prevention better than cure.
4. Their strife might have led to serious consequences. The Canaanite, etc., were in the land. They might have taken advantage of this strife. It might have extended to their masters, and resulted in a family disrupture.
(J. C. Gray.)
