7 And quarreling arose between Abramís herders and Lotís. The Canaanites and Perizzites were also living in the land at that time.
8 So Abram said to Lot, ďLetís not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herders and mine, for we are close relatives.
9 Is not the whole land before you? Letís part company. If you go to the left, Iíll go to the right; if you go to the right, Iíll go to the left.Ē
10 Lot looked around and saw that the whole plain of the Jordan toward Zoar was well watered, like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt. (This was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
11 So Lot chose for himself the whole plain of the Jordan and set out toward the east. The two men parted company:
12 Abram lived in the land of Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom.
13 Now the people of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the Lord.
