1 Factum est autem in illo tempore, ut Amraphel rex Sennaar et Arioch rex Ellasar et Chodorlahomor rex Elam et Thadal rex gentium
2 inirent bellum contra Bara regem Sodomae et contra Bersa regem Gomorrae et contra Sennaab regem Adamae et contra Semeber regem Seboim contraque regem Belae; ipsa est Segor.
3 Omnes hi convenerunt in vallem Siddim, quae nunc est mare Salis.
4 Duodecim annis servierant Chodorlahomor et tertio decimo anno recesserunt ab eo.
5 Igitur anno quarto decimo venit Chodorlahomor et reges, qui erant cum eo, percusseruntque Raphaim in Astharothcarnaim et Zuzim in Ham et Emim in Savecariathaim
6 et Chorraeos in montibus Seir usque ad Elpharan, quae est in deserto.
7 Reversique sunt et venerunt ad fontem Mesphat; ipsa est Cades. Et percusserunt omnem regionem Amalecitarum et etiam Amorraeum, qui habitabat in Asasonthamar.
8 Et egressi sunt rex Sodomae et rex Gomorrae rexque Adamae et rex Seboim necnon et rex Belae, quae est Segor; et direxerunt contra eos aciem in valle Siddim,
9 scilicet adversus Chodorlahomor regem Elam et Thadal regem gentium et Amraphel regem Sennaar et Arioch regem Ellasar: quattuor reges adversus quinque.
10 Vallis autem Siddim habebat puteos multos bituminis. Itaque rex Sodomae et Gomorrae terga verterunt cecideruntque illuc; et, qui remanserant, fugerunt ad montem.
11 Tulerunt autem omnem substantiam Sodomae et Gomorrae et universa, quae ad cibum pertinent, et abierunt;
12 ceperunt et Lot et substantiam eius, filium fratris Abram, qui habitabat in Sodoma.
13 Et ecce unus, qui evaserat, nuntiavit Abram Hebraeo, qui habitabat iuxta Quercus Mambre Amorraei fratris Eschol et fratris Aner; hi enim pepigerant foedus cum Abram.
14 Quod cum audisset Abram, captum videlicet Lot fratrem suum, numeravit expeditos vernaculos suos trecentos decem et octo et persecutus est usque Dan;
15 et, divisis sociis, irruit super eos nocte percussitque eos et persecutus est eos usque Hoba, quae est ad laevam Damasci;
16 reduxitque omnem substantiam, necnon et Lot fratrem suum cum substantia illius, mulieres quoque et populum.
17 Egressus est autem rex Sodomae in occursum eius, postquam reversus est a caede Chodorlahomor et regum, qui cum eo erant, in vallem Save, quae est vallis Regis.
18 At vero Melchisedech rex Salem proferens panem et vinum erat enim sacerdos Dei altissimi
19 benedixit ei et ait: "Benedictus Abram a Deo excelso, qui creavit caelum et terram
20 et benedictus Deus excelsus, qui tradidit hostes tuos in manus tuas" Et dedit ei decimas ex omnibus.
21 Dixit autem rex Sodomae ad Abram: "Da mihi animas; substantiam tolle tibi"
22 Qui respondit ei: "Levo manum meam ad Dominum, Deum excelsum, creatorem caeli et terrae,
23 a filo subteminis usque ad corrigiam caligae non accipiam ex omnibus, quae tua sunt, ne dicas: "Ego ditavi Abram";
24 exceptis his, quae comederunt iuvenes, et partibus virorum, qui venerunt mecum, Aner, Eschol et Mambre: isti accipient partes suas"
King James Version
1 And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;
2 That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.
3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.
4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.
5 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto El-paran, which is by the wilderness.
7 And they returned, and came to En-mishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezon-tamar.
8 And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;
9 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.
10 And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.
11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.
12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.
14 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.
15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
17 ¶ And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.
