And it came about in the days of Amraphelking of 1Shinar, Ariochking of Ellasar, Chedorlaomerking of 2Elam, and Tidalking of aGoiim,
that they madewar with Beraking of Sodom, and with Birshaking of Gomorrah, Shinabking of 3Admah, and Shemeberking of 4Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that is, 5Zoar ).
3Allthesebcame as allies to 6the valley of Siddim (that is, 7the SaltSea ).
4Twelveyears they had servedChedorlaomer, but the thirteenthyear they rebelled.
In the fourteenthyearChedorlaomer and the kings that were with him, came and cdefeated the 8Rephaim in 9Ashteroth-karnaim and the Zuzim in Ham and the Emim in d10Shaveh-kiriathaim,
and the 11Horites in their MountSeir, as far as 12El-paran, which is by the wilderness.
Then they turnedback and came to En-mishpat (that is, 13Kadesh ), and econqueredall the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, who lived in 14Hazazon-tamar.
And the king of Sodom and the king of Gomorrah and the king of Admah and the king of Zeboiim and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar ) came out; and they arrayed for battleagainst them in 15the valley of Siddim,
9againstChedorlaomerking of Elam and Tidalking of fGoiim and Amraphelking of Shinar and Ariochking of Ellasar-fourkingsagainstfive.
Now the valley of Siddim was full of tarpits; and 16the kings of Sodom and Gomorrahfled, and they fellginto them. But those who survivedfled to the 17hillcountry.
Then they tookall the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their foodsupply, and departed.
They also tookLot, 18Abram'snephew , and his possessions and departed, 19for he was living in Sodom.
Then ha fugitivecame and toldAbram the 20Hebrew. Now he was iliving by the j21oaks of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner, and these were k22allies with Abram.
When Abramheard that 23his lrelative had been takencaptive, he mled out his trainedmen, 24born in his house, threehundred and eighteen , and went in pursuit as far as 25Dan.
1526He dividednhis forces against them by night, he and his servants, and odefeated them, and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is pnorth of 27Damascus.
He 28broughtbackall the goods, and alsobroughtback29his qrelativeLot with his possessions, and also the women, and the people.
Then after his return from the rdefeat of Chedorlaomer and the kingswho were with him, 30the king of Sodomwent out to meet him at the valley of Shaveh (that is, 31the King'sValley ).
And 32Melchizedekking of Salembrought out 33bread and wine; now he was a 34priest of sGodMostHigh.
He blessed him and said, "Blessed be Abram of tGodMostHigh, u35Possessor of heaven and earth;
And blessed be vGodMostHigh, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." 36He gave him a tenth of all.
The king of Sodomsaid to Abram, "Give the wpeople to me and take the goods for yourself."
22Abramsaid to the king of Sodom, "I have xsworn to the LORDy37GodMostHigh, z38possessor of heaven and earth,
that 39I will not take a thread or a sandalthong or anything that is yours, for fear you would say, 'I have madeAbramrich.'
"aaI will take nothingexceptwhat the youngmen have eaten, and the share of the menwhowent with me, 40Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their share."
