Genesis 13:1-18
1. And Abram goeth up from Egypt (he and his wife, and all that he hath, and Lot with him) towards the south;
2. and Abram [is] exceedingly wealthy in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
3. And he goeth on his journeyings from the south, even unto Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the commencement, between Bethel and Hai --
4. unto the place of the altar which he made there at the first, and there doth Abram preach in the name of Jehovah.
5. And also to Lot, who is going with Abram, there hath been sheep and oxen and tents;
6. and the land hath not suffered them to dwell together, for their substance hath been much, and they have not been able to dwell together;
7. and there is a strife between those feeding Abram`s cattle and those feeding Lot`s cattle; and the Canaanite and the Perizzite [are] then dwelling in the land.
8. And Abram saith unto Lot, `Let there not, I pray thee, be strife between me and thee, and between my shepherds and thy shepherds, for we [are] men -- brethren.
9. Is not all the land before thee? be parted, I pray thee, from me; if to the left, then I to the right; and if to the right, then I to the left.`
10. And Lot lifteth up his eyes, and seeth the whole circuit of the Jordan that it [is] all a watered country (before Jehovah`s destroying Sodom and Gomorrah, as Jehovah`s garden, as the land of Egypt,) in thy coming toward Zoar,
11. and Lot chooseth for himself the whole circuit of the Jordan; and Lot journeyeth from the east, and they are parted -- a man from his companion;
12. Abram hath dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot hath dwelt in the cities of the circuit, and tenteth unto Sodom;
13. and the men of Sodom [are] evil, and sinners before Jehovah exceedingly.
14. And Jehovah said unto Abram, after Lot`s being parted from him, `Lift up, I pray thee, thine eyes, and look from the place where thou [art], northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward;
15. for the whole of the land which thou are seeing, to thee I give it, and to thy seed -- to the age.
16. And I have set thy seed as dust of the earth, so that, if one is able to number the dust of the earth, even thy seed is numbered;
17. rise, go up and down through the land, to its length, and to its breadth, for to thee I give it.`
18. And Abram tenteth, and cometh, and dwelleth among the oaks of Mamre, which [are] in Hebron, and buildeth there an altar to Jehovah.

Genesis 14:1-24
1. And it cometh to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goyim,
2. they have made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboim, and the king of Bela, which [is] Zoar.
3. All these have been joined together unto the valley of Siddim, which [is] the Salt Sea;
4. twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they rebelled.
5. And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings who [are] with him, and they smite 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 El-Paran, which [is] by the wilderness;
7. and they turn back and come in unto En-Mishpat, which [is] Kadesh, and smite the whole field of the Amalekite, and also the Amorite who is dwelling in Hazezon-Tamar.
8. And the king of Sodom goeth out, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboim, and the king of Bela, which [is] Zoar; and they set the battle in array with them in the valley of Siddim,
9. with Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goyim, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with the five.
10. And the valley of Siddim [is] full of bitumen-pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah flee, and fall there, and those left have fled to the mountain.
11. And they take the whole substance of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the whole of their food, and go away;
12. and they take Lot, Abram`s brother`s son (seeing he is dwelling in Sodom), and his substance, and go away.
13. And one who is escaping cometh and declareth to Abram the Hebrew, and he is dwelling among the oaks of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner, and they [are] Abram`s allies.
14. And Abram heareth that his brother hath been taken captive, and he draweth out his trained domestics, three hundred and eighteen, and pursueth unto Dan.
15. And he divideth himself against them by night, he and his servants, and smiteth them, and pursueth them unto Hobah, which [is] at the left of Damascus;
16. and he bringeth back the whole of the substance, and also Lot his brother and his substance hath he brought back, and also the women and the people.
17. And the king of Sodom goeth out to meet him (after his turning back from the smiting of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings who [are] with him), unto the valley of Shaveh, which [is] the king`s valley.
18. And Melchizedek king of Salem hath brought out bread and wine, and he [is] priest of God Most High;
19. and he blesseth him, and saith, `Blessed [is] Abram to God Most High, possessing heaven and earth;
20. and blessed [is] God Most High, who hath delivered thine adversaries into thy hand;` and he giveth to him a tenth of all.
21. And the king of Sodom saith unto Abram, `Give to me the persons, and the substance take to thyself,`
22. and Abram saith unto the king of Sodom, `I have lifted up my hand unto Jehovah, God Most High, possessing heaven and earth --
23. from a thread even unto a shoe-latchet I take not of anything which thou hast, that thou say not, I -- I have made Abram rich;
24. save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who have gone with me -- Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre -- they take their portion.`

Psalms 4:4-8
4. `Tremble ye, and do not sin;` Say ye [thus] in your heart on your bed, And be ye silent. Selah.
5. Sacrifice ye sacrifices of righteousness, And trust ye unto Jehovah.
6. Many are saying, `Who doth show us good?` Lift on us the light of Thy face, O Jehovah,
7. Thou hast given joy in my heart, From the time their corn and their wine Have been multiplied.
8. In peace together I lie down and sleep, For Thou, O Jehovah, alone, In confidence dost cause me to dwell!

Proverbs 2:1-5
1. My son, if thou dost accept my sayings, And my commands dost lay up with thee,
2. To cause thine ear to attend to wisdom, Thou inclinest thy heart to understanding,
3. For, if for intelligence thou callest, For understanding givest forth thy voice,
4. If thou dost seek her as silver, And as hid treasures searchest for her,
5. Then understandest thou fear of Jehovah, And knowledge of God thou findest.

Matthew 6:1-18
1. `Take heed your kindness not to do before men, to be seen by them, and if not -- reward ye have not from your Father who [is] in the heavens;
2. whenever, therefore, thou mayest do kindness, thou mayest not sound a trumpet before thee as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may have glory from men; verily I say to you -- they have their reward!
3. `But thou, doing kindness, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doth,
4. that thy kindness may be in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret Himself shall reward thee manifestly.
5. `And when thou mayest pray, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites, because they love in the synagogues, and in the corners of the broad places -- standing -- to pray, that they may be seen of men; verily I say to you, that they have their reward.
6. `But thou, when thou mayest pray, go into thy chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who [is] in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.
7. `And -- praying -- ye may not use vain repetitions like the nations, for they think that in their much speaking they shall be heard,
8. be ye not therefore like to them, for your Father doth know those things that ye have need of before your asking him;
9. thus therefore pray ye: `Our Father who [art] in the heavens! hallowed be Thy name.
10. `Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth.
11. `Our appointed bread give us to-day.
12. `And forgive us our debts, as also we forgive our debtors.
13. `And mayest Thou not lead us to temptation, but deliver us from the evil, because Thine is the reign, and the power, and the glory -- to the ages. Amen.
14. `For, if ye may forgive men their trespasses He also will forgive you -- your Father who [is] in the heavens;
15. but if ye may not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16. `And when ye may fast, be ye not as the hypocrites, of sour countenances, for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear to men fasting; verily I say to you, that they have their reward.
17. `But thou, fasting, anoint thy head, and wash thy face,
18. that thou mayest not appear to men fasting, but to thy Father who [is] in secret, and thy Father, who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.
