Genesis 13:1-18
1. And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the South.
2. And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
3. And he went on his journeys from the South even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth-el and Ai,
4. unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of Jehovah.
5. And Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
6. And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.
7. And there was a strife between the herdsmen of Abrams cattle and the herdsmen of Lots cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelt then in the land.
8. And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdsmen and thy herdsmen; for we are brethren.
9. Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me. If thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right. Or if thou take the right hand, then I will go to the left.
10. And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the Plain of the Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before Jehovah destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the garden of Jehovah, like the land of Egypt, as thou goest unto Zoar.
11. So Lot chose him all the Plain of the Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
12. Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the Plain, and moved his tent as far as Sodom.
13. Now the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners against Jehovah exceedingly.
14. And Jehovah said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art, northward and southward and eastward and westward:
15. for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
16. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: So that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then may thy seed also be numbered.
17. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for unto thee will I give it.
18. And Abram moved his tent, and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built there an altar unto Jehovah.

Genesis 14:1-24
1. 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 Goiim,
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).
3. All these joined together in the vale of Siddim (the same is the Salt Sea).
4. Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.
5. And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaim in Ashteroth-karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh-kiriathaim,
6. and the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness.
7. And they returned, and came to En-mishpat (the same is Kadesh), and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazazon-tamar.
8. And 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 vale of Siddim;
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.
10. Now the vale of Siddim was full of slime pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and they fell there, and they that remained fled to the mountain.
11. And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.
12. And they took Lot, Abrams brothers son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
13. And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew: now he dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner; and these were confederate with Abram.
14. And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued as far as Dan.
15. And he divided himself against them by night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
16. And he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
17. And the king of Sodom went out to meet him, after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him, at the vale of Shaveh (the same is the Kings Vale).
18. And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was priest of God Most High.
19. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth:
20. and blessed be God Most High, who hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him a tenth of all.
21. And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
22. And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted up my hand unto Jehovah, God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth,
23. that I will not take a thread nor a shoe-latchet nor aught that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
24. save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men that went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre. Let them take their portion.

Psalms 4:4-8
4. Stand in awe, and sin not: Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah
5. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And put your trust in Jehovah.
6. Many there are that say, Who will show us any good? Jehovah, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, More than they have when their grain and their new wine are increased.
8. In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; For thou, Jehovah, alone makest me dwell in safety. Psalm 5 For the Chief Musician; with the Nehiloth. A Psalm of David.

Proverbs 2:1-5
1. My son, if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee;
2. So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding;
3. Yea, if thou cry after discernment, And lift up thy voice for understanding;
4. If thou seek her as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures:
5. Then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, And find the knowledge of God.

Matthew 6:1-18
1. Take heed that ye do not your righteousness before men, to be seen of them: else ye have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.
2. When therefore thou doest alms, sound not a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.
3. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4. that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father who seeth in secret shall recompense thee.
5. And when ye pray, ye shall not be as the hypocrites: for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.
6. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thine inner chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who seeth in secret shall recompense thee.
7. And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8. Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9. After this manner therefore pray ye. Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.
11. Give us this day our daily bread.
12. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13. And bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
14. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15. But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16. Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may be seen of men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.
17. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head, and wash thy face;
18. that thou be not seen of men to fast, but of thy Father who is in secret: and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall recompense thee.
