Bear in mind the wife of Lot! Whosoever shall seek to make his life his own, shall lose it,
But his wife looked from behind him, - and became - a pillar of salt.
In like manner, as it came to pass in the days of Lot, They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building, - But, on the day Lot came out from Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all: -
And it came to pass when they had brought them forth outside, that they said, Escape for thy life, Look not behind thee, neither stand still in all the vale, - To the mountain, escape thou lest thou be swept away. And Lot said unto them, - No, I pray thee, My Lord! Behold, I pray thee thy servant hath found favour in thine eyes, so that thou hast magnified thy lovingkindness which thou hast performed with me in keeping alive my soul. - But, I, cannot escape to the mountain, lest calamity overtake me so shall I die. read more.
Behold, I pray thee, this city, is near for fleeing thither And, it, is a little one, let me I pray thee, escape thither - is it not a, little, one? That my soul may live! And he said unto him, Behold! I have lifted up thy countenance, even as to this thing, - so that I will not overthrow the city, of which thou hast spoken. Haste thee escape thither, for I cannot do anything, until thou have come in thither. For this cause: was the name of the city called Zoar.
And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain and his two daughters with him. for he feared to dwell in Zoar, so he dwelt in a cave, he, and his two daughters. And the firstborn said unto the younger. Our father is old, - and, a man, there is not in the earth to come in unto us, after the way of all the earth. Come on! let us cause our father to drink wine and let us lie with him, that we may keep alive from our father, a seed. read more.
So they caused their father to drink wine that night, - and the firstborn went in. and lay with her father, but he noticed not her lying down nor her rising up. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Lo! I lay, last night with my father, let us cause him to drink wine this night also, and go thou in - lie with him, that we may keep alive from our father, a seed. So they caused their father, on that night also to drink wine, and the younger arose, and lay with him, but he noticed not her lying down, nor her rising up. Thus did, the two daughters of Lot conceive from their father. And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab, - the same, is the father of Moab, unto this day. And the younger she also bare a son, and called his name Ben-ammi, - the same, is the father of the sons of Ammon - unto this day.
And it came to pass, in the days of Amraphel, king of Shinar, Arioch, king of Ellasar, - Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goim, that they made war, with Bera, king of Sodom, and with Birsha, king of Gomorrah, - Shinab, king of Admah, and Shemeber, king of Zeboim, and the king of Bela - the same, is Zoar. All these, joined together in the valley of the open fields, the same, is the Salt Sea. read more.
Twelve years, had they served Chedorlaomer, - but in the thirteenth year had they rebelled; and in the fourteenth year, had Chedorlaomer come in and the kings who were with him, so they smote the Rephaim in Ashteroth-karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, - and the Emim, in Shaveh-kiriathaim; and the Horites in their Mount Seir, - as far as El-paran, which is by the desert. So they returned and came in unto En-mishpat, the same, is Kadish, and smote all the field of the Amalekites, - and the Amorites also that dwelt in Hazazon-tamar, Thus then went forth the King of Sodom and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah and the king of Zeboim, and the king of Bela the same, is Zoar - and set themselves in array against them for battle, in the valley of the open fields: against Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goim, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar, - four kings against five. Now, the valley of the open fields, had many pits of bitumen, so the king of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there, - while, they who remained, towards a mountain, fled. And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food and went their way. And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son with his goods, and went their way, - he, being a dweller in Sodom. Then came in a fugitive, and told Abram the Hebrew, - he, having his dwelling among the oaks of Mature the Amorite brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner, they, also having a covenant with Abram. So Abram, hearing that his brother had been taken captive, drew forth his trained men born in his house three hundred and eighteen, and pursued as far as Dan. And he divided himself against them by night, he, and his servants, and smote them, - and pursued them as far as Hobah, which was on the left of Damascus. So he brought back all the goods, - yea Lot also his brother with his goods, did he bring back, and the women also, and the people.
Now, Lot also, who was going with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. And the land suffered them not to dwell together, - because their substance had become, great, so that they could not dwell together. And there arose a strife betwixt the herdmen of Abram, and the herdmen of Lot. Now the Canaanite and the Perizzite, were then dwelling in the land. read more.
So then Abram said unto Lot Pray let not cause of strife arise betwixt me and thee, or betwixt my herdmen and thy herdmen; for brethren, are we. Is not, all the land, before thee? I pray thee, separate thyself from me, - if to the left hand, then I will go to the right, if to the right hand, then I will go to the left. So Lot lifted up his eyes and beheld all the circuit of the Jordan, that the whole of it, was well-watered, - before Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the Garden of Yahweh, like the land of Egypt, as thou enterest into Zoar. And Lot chose for himself all the circuit of the Jordan, so Lot brake up eastwards, - and they separated themselves, each man from his brother: Abram, fixed his dwelling in the land of Canaan, - but, Lot, fixed his dwelling among the cities, of the circuit, and moved his tent as far as Sodom. Now, the men of Sodom were base and sinful, - against Yahweh, exceedingly. And, Yahweh, said unto Abram after that Lot had separated himself from him, Lift up, I pray thee thine eyes and look, from the place where thou art, - northward and southward and eastward and westward;
So Abram came up out of Egypt he and his wife and all that he had and Lot with him, towards the South. Now, Abram, was very rich, - in cattle, in silver and in gold. And he went his way, by his removals, from the South even as far as to Bethel, - as far as the place where his tent was at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai:
And Terah took Abram his son and Lot son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, wife of Abram his son, - and came forth with them out of Ur of the Chaldees, that they might go their way towards the land of Canaan, and they came in as far as Haran and dwelt there.
And Abram came on his way, according to that which Yahweh had spoken unto him, and Lot came with him, - now, Abram, was seventy-five years old, when he came forth out of Haran.
