\\INTRODUCTION TO GENESIS 13\\

This chapter gives an account of the return of Abram from Egypt to the
land of Canaan, and to the same place in it he had been before,
\\#Ge 13:1-4\\ and of a strife between the herdsmen of Abram and Lot,
and the occasion of it, \\#Ge 13:5-7\\ which was composed by the
prudent proposal of Abram, \\#Ge 13:8,9\\ upon which they parted; Abram
continued in Canaan, and Lot chose the plain of Jordan, and dwelt near
Sodom, a place infamous for wickedness, \\#Ge 13:10-13\\ after which
the Lord renewed to Abram the grant of the land of Canaan to him, and
to his seed, \\#Ge 13:14-17\\ and then he removed to the plain of Mamre
in Hebron, and there set up the worship of God, \\#Ge 13:18\\.
