Genesis 14


14:1 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 nations;
14:2 [That these] 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, which is Zoar.
14:3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which
 is the salt sea.
14:4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the
 thirteenth year they rebelled.
14:5 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings
 that [were] with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth
 Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emins in Shaveh
 Kiriathaim,
14:6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, to El-paran, which
 [is] by the wilderness.
14:7 And they returned, and came to En-mishpat, which [is]
 Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also
 the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.
14:8 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 joined battle
 with them in the vale of Siddim;
14:9 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of
 nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of
 Ellasar; four kings with five.
14:10 And the vale of Siddim [was full of] slime-pits; and the
 kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there: and they that
 remained fled to the mountain.
14:11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all
 their provisions, and went their way.
14:12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in
 Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
14:13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the
 Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother
 of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these [were] confederate
 with Abram.
14:14 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive,
 he armed his trained [servants], born in his own house, three
 hundred and eighteen, and pursued [them] to Dan.
14:15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants
 by night, and smote them, and pursued them to Hobah, which [is]
 on the left hand of Damascus.
14:16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again
 his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the
 people.
14:17 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.
14:18 And Melchisedek, king of Salem, brought forth bread and
 wine: and he [was] the priest of the most high God.
14:19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed [be] Abram of the
 most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
14:20 And blessed be the most high God, who hath delivered thy
 enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
14:21 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the persons,
 and take the goods to thyself.
14:22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted my hand
 to the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and
 earth,
14:23 That I will not [take] from a thread even to a
 shoe-latchet, and that I will not take any thing that [is]
 thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
14:24 Save 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.
