And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were
with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is
the king's dale.
And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was
the priest of the most high God.
And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be
Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
That I will not take
from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is
thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.
