Genesis Chapter 13 Summary
Abram traveled up to Egypt with his wife, Sarai, and his nephew, Lot. The Bible describes Abram as a wealthy man, being rich in silver, gold, and cattle. Abram went into a place of the altar and called on the name of the Lord.
Lot, who went along with Abram, also was wealthy in flocks, herds, and tents. They had so much, the land couldn’t support all their possessions. They had conflicts upon conflicts, and one time there was a violent conflict between the herdsmen of Abram and them of Lot.
Abram did not want to strife between himself and his nephew, nor with the herdsmen. He decided to settle the matters. Abram told Lot they are brothers. They decided to amicably split the land; Abram giving Lot first choice. Lot surveyed the land and looked at the valley of Jordan.
It was well watered everywhere, similar to the garden of the Lord. Lot chose to travel east of the Jordan, as he separated himself from Abram. After Lot’s departure, the Lord told Abram, to view the land in all directions.
The Lord told Abram that all the land he saw, will be given to him and all his descendants forever. “Walk through the land”, the Lord said, “for I will give it to you.” Abram moved his tent and settled by the oaks of Mamre, which is in Hebron. There, he built an altar unto the Lord.
