GEN 14:1 It happened in the days of Amraphel, king of Shinar, Arioch, king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Tidal, king of Goiim,
GEN 14:2 that they made war with Bera, king of Sodom, and with Birsha, king of Gomorrah, Shinab, king of Admah, and Shemeber, king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar).
GEN 14:3 All these joined together in the valley of Siddim (the same is the Salt Sea).
GEN 14:4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year, they rebelled.
GEN 14:5 In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer came, and the kings who were with him, and struck the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh-kiriathaim,
GEN 14:6 and the Horites in their Mount Seir, to Elparan, which is by the wilderness.
GEN 14:7 They returned, and came to En-mishpat (the same is Kadesh), and struck all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that lived in Hazazon Tamar.
GEN 14:8 There went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar); and they set the battle in array against them in the valley of Siddim;
GEN 14:9 against Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goiim, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings against the five.
GEN 14:10 Now the valley of Siddim was full of tar pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and they fell there, and those who remained fled to the mountain.
GEN 14:11 They took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their food, and went their way.
GEN 14:12 They took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who lived in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
GEN 14:13 One who had escaped came and told Abram, the Hebrew. Now he lived by the oaks of Mamre, the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner; and these were allies of Abram.
GEN 14:14 When Abram heard that his relative was taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued as far as Dan.
GEN 14:15 He divided himself against them by night, he and his servants, and struck them, and pursued them to Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
GEN 14:16 He brought back all the goods, and also brought back his relative, Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
GEN 14:17 The king of Sodom went out to meet him, after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, at the valley of Shaveh (the same is the King's Valley).
GEN 14:18 Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was priest of God Most High.
GEN 14:19 He blessed him, and said, "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth:
GEN 14:20 and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand." Abram gave him a tenth of all.
GEN 14:21 The king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give me the people, and take the goods to yourself."
GEN 14:22 Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have lifted up my hand to Yahweh, God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth,
GEN 14:23 that I will not take a thread nor a shoe-latchet nor anything that is yours, lest you should say, 'I have made Abram rich.'
GEN 14:24 Except only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre: let them take their portion."
