Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he and his wife, and 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 And he was very rich in possession of gold and silver. 2 Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.
3 And he returned by the way, that he came, from the south to Bethel, to the place where before he had pitched his tent between Bethel and Hai, 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 In the place of the altar which he had made before, and there he called upon the name of the Lord. 4 and where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on the name of the LORD.
5 But Lot also, who was with Abram, had flocks of sheep, and herds of beasts, and tents. 5 Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents.
6 Neither was the land able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, and they could not dwell 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 Whereupon also there arose a strife between the herdsmen of Abram and of Lot. And at that time the Chanaanite and the Pherezite dwelled in that country. 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 Abram therefore said to Lot: Let there be no quarrel, I beseech thee, between me and thee, and between my herdsmen and thy herdsmen: for we are brethren. 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 Behold the whole land is before thee: depart from me, I pray thee: if thou wilt go to the left hand, I will take the right: if thou choose the right hand, I will pass 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 And Lot lifting up his eyes, saw all the country about the Jordan, which was watered throughout, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha, as the paradise of the Lord, and like Egypt as one comes to Segor. 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 And Lot chose to himself the country about the Jordan, and he departed from the east: and they were separated one brother 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 Abram dwelt in the land of Chanaan: and Lot abode in the towns, that were about the Jordan, and dwelt in Sodom. 12 Abram lived in the land of Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom.
13 And the men of Sodom were very wicked, and sinners before the face of the Lord beyond measure. 13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.
14 And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot was separated from him: Lift up thy eyes, and look from the place wherein thou now art, to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west. 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 All the land which thou seest, I will give to thee, and to thy seed for ever. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.
16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: if any man be able to number the dust of the earth, he shall be able to number thy seed also. 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 and walk through the land in the length, and the breadth thereof: for I will give it to thee. 17 Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you."
18 So Abram removing his tent, came, and dwelt by the vale of Mambre, which is in Hebron: and he built there an altar 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.
