Genesis 14:17-24

God's Promise to Abram

17 Then after his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, 1the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the valley of Shaveh (that is, 2the King's Valley ).
18 And 3Melchizedek king of Salem brought out 4bread and wine; now he was a 5priest of God Most High.
19 He blessed him and said, "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, 6Possessor of heaven and earth;
20 And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." 7He gave him a tenth of all.
21 The king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give the people to me and take the goods for yourself."
22 Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have sworn * to the LORD 8God Most High, 9possessor of heaven and earth,
23 that 10I will not take a thread or a sandal thong or anything that is yours, for fear you would say, 'I have made Abram rich.'
24 "I will take nothing except what the young men have eaten, and the share of the men who went with me, 11Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their share."
