And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son
The son of Haran, his elder brother, who was now, as the Jews say F24, fifty years of age: who dwelt in Sodom,
or near it, in the country adjacent to it, see ( Genesis 13:12 ) ; and so being a neighbour of the men of Sodom, and a sojourner among them, he partakes of their punishment; and this was a just correction of him for choosing to dwell among such a people: and they took his goods, and departed;
as him and his family, so all his substance, his cattle, wealth, and riches of every sort, and went off with it: Eupolemus F25, an Heathen writer, makes mention of this circumstance in his relation of this war, and says, that the Armenians, as he calls the four kings, baring conquered the Phoenicians, carried away captive the brother's son of Abram.
