He gave a blessing to Abram. He said, "May God Most High bless Abram. May the Creator of heaven and earth bless him.
Give praise to God Most High. He gave your enemies into your hand." Then Abram gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything.
The king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give me the people. Keep everything else for yourself."
But Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have raised my hand to the Lord. He is God Most High. He is the Creator of heaven and earth. I have taken an oath.
I have said that I won't accept anything that belongs to you. I won't take even a thread or the strap of a sandal. You will never be able to say, 'I made Abram rich.'
"I'll accept only what my men have eaten and what belongs to Aner, Eshcol and Mamre. Those three men went with me. Let them have their share."
