1 Ascendit ergo Abram de Ae gypto ipse et uxor eius et om nia, quae habebat, et Lot cum eo ad Nageb.
2 Abram autem erat dives valde in pecoribus, argento et auro.
3 Et profectus est de mansione in mansionem a Nageb in Bethel usque ad locum, ubi prius fixerat tabernaculum inter Bethel et Hai,
4 in loco altaris, quod fecerat prius, et invocavit ibi nomen Domini.
5 Sed et Lot, qui ibat cum Abram, fuerunt greges ovium et armenta et tabernacula;
6 nec poterat eos capere terra, ut habitarent simul: erat quippe substantia eorum multa, et nequibant habitare communiter.
7 Unde et facta est rixa inter pastores gregum Abram et pastores gregum Lot. Eo autem tempore Chananaeus et Pherezaeus habitabant in illa terra.
8 Dixit ergo Abram ad Lot: "Ne, quaeso, sit iurgium inter me et te et inter pastores meos et pastores tuos: fratres enim sumus.
9 Nonne universa terra coram te est? Recede a me, obsecro: si ad sinistram ieris, ego dexteram tenebo; si tu dexteram elegeris, ego ad sinistram pergam"
10 Elevatis itaque Lot oculis, vidit omnem circa regionem Iordanis, quae universa irrigabatur, antequam subverteret Dominus Sodomam et Gomorram, sicut paradisus Domini et sicut Aegyptus usque in Segor.
11 Elegitque sibi Lot omnem regionem circa Iordanem et recessit ad orientem; divisique sunt alterutrum a fratre suo.
12 Abram habitavit in terra Chanaan; Lot vero moratus est in oppidis, quae erant circa Iordanem, et tabernacula movit usque ad Sodomam.
13 Homines autem Sodomitae pessimi erant et peccatores coram Domino nimis.
14 Dixitque Dominus ad Abram, postquam divisus est Lot ab eo: "Leva oculos tuos et vide a loco, in quo nunc es, ad aquilonem et ad meridiem, ad orientem et ad occidentem:
15 omnem terram, quam conspicis, tibi dabo et semini tuo usque in sempiternum;
16 faciamque semen tuum sicut pulverem terrae: si quis potest hominum numerare pulverem terrae, semen quoque tuum numerare poterit.
17 Surge et perambula terram in longitudine et in latitudine sua, quia tibi daturus sum eam"
18 Movens igitur tabernaculum suum, Abram venit et habitavit iuxta Quercus Mambre, quae sunt in Hebron, aedificavitque ibi altare Domino.
King James Version
1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.
2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
3 And he went on his journeys from the south even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth-el and Hai;
4 Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.
5 ¶ And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
6 And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.
7 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.
9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
14 ¶ And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
18 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.
