Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Avram went up out of Mitzrayim: he, his wife, all that he had, and Lot with him, into the South. 1 So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, with his wife and everything he had, and Lot went with him.
2 Avram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. 2 Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.
3 He went on his journeys from the South even to Beit-El, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beit-El and `Ai, 3 From the Negev he went from place to place until he came to Bethel, to the place between Bethel and Ai where his tent had been earlier
4 to the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first. There Avram called on the name of the LORD. 4 and where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on the name of the LORD.
5 Lot also, who went with Avram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. 5 Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents.
6 The land was not able to bear them, that they might live together: for their substance was great, so that they could not live together. 6 But the land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together.
7 There was a strife between the herdsmen of Avram's cattle and the herdsmen of Lot's cattle: and the Kana`ani and the Perizzi lived then in the land. 7 And quarreling arose between Abram's herdsmen and the herdsmen of Lot. The Canaanites and Perizzites were also living in the land at that time.
8 Avram said to Lot, "Please, let there be no strife between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are relatives. 8 So Abram said to Lot, "Let's not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers.
9 Isn't the whole land before you? Please separate yourself from me. If you go to the left hand, then I will go to the right. Or if you go to the right hand, then I will go to the left." 9 Is not the whole land before you? Let's part company. If you go to the left, I'll go to the right; if you go to the right, I'll go to the left."
10 Lot lifted up his eyes, and saw all the plain of the Yarden, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sedom and `Amorah, like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Mitzrayim, as you go to Tzo`ar. 10 Lot looked up and saw that the whole plain of the Jordan was well watered, like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, toward Zoar. (This was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
11 So Lot chose the Plain of the Yarden for himself. Lot journeyed east, and they separated themselves the one from the other. 11 So Lot chose for himself the whole plain of the Jordan and set out toward the east. The two men parted company:
12 Avram lived in the land of Kana`an, and Lot lived in the cities of the plain, and moved his tent as far as Sedom. 12 Abram lived in the land of Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom.
13 Now the men of Sedom were exceedingly wicked and sinners against the LORD. 13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.
14 The LORD said to Avram, after Lot was separated from him, "Now, lift up your eyes, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward, 14 The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, "Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west.
15 for all the land which you see, I will give to you, and to your offspring forever. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.
16 I will make your offspring as the dust of the eretz, so that if a man can number the dust of the eretz, then your seed may also be numbered. 16 I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted.
17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it to you." 17 Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you."
18 Avram moved his tent, and came and lived by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hevron, and built an altar there to the LORD. 18 So Abram moved his tents and went to live near the great trees of Mamre at Hebron, where he built an altar to the LORD.
