And Abram goeth up from Egypt (he and his wife, and all that he hath, and Lot with him) towards the south;
and Abram [is] exceedingly wealthy in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
And he goeth on his journeyings from the south, even unto Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the commencement, between Bethel and Hai --
unto the place of the altar which he made there at the first, and there doth Abram preach in the name of Jehovah.
And also to Lot, who is going with Abram, there hath been sheep and oxen and tents;
and the land hath not suffered them to dwell together, for their substance hath been much, and they have not been able to dwell together;
and there is a strife between those feeding Abram's cattle and those feeding Lot's cattle; and the Canaanite and the Perizzite [are] then dwelling in the land.
And Abram saith unto Lot, `Let there not, I pray thee, be strife between me and thee, and between my shepherds and thy shepherds, for we [are] men -- brethren.
