So Abram said to Lot, 'Please let there be no strife between you and me, nor between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are relatives!
Is the entire land not before you? Please separate from me; if you choose
the left, then I will go to the right; or if you choose
the right, then I will go to the left.'
Lot raised his eyes and saw all the vicinity of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere—this was
before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah—like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt going toward Zoar.
So Lot chose for himself all the vicinity of the Jordan, and Lot journeyed eastward. So they separated from each other.
Abram settled in the land of Canaan, while Lot settled in the cities of the vicinity of the Jordan,
and moved his tents as far as Sodom.
Now the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked sinners against the LORD.
The LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, 'Now raise your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward, and eastward and westward;
for all the land which you see I will give to you and to your descendants forever.
I will make your descendants as plentiful as
the dust of the earth, so that if anyone can count the dust of the earth, then your descendants could also be counted.
