Genesis 14


1  And it came to pass1961 in the days3117 of Amraphel569 king4428 of Shinar,8152 Arioch746 king4428 of Ellasar,495 Chedorlaomer3540 king4428 of Elam,5867 and Tidal8413 king4428 of nations;1471

2  That these made6213 war4421 with854 Bera1298 king4428 of Sodom,5467 and with854 Birsha1306 king4428 of Gomorrah,6017 Shinab8134 king4428 of Admah,126 and Shemeber8038 king4428 of Zeboiim,6636 and the king4428 of Bela,1106 which1931 is Zoar.6820

3  All3605 these428 were joined together2266 in413 the vale6010 of Siddim,7708 which1931 is the salt4417 sea.3220

4  Twelve8147 6240 years8141 they served5647 853 Chedorlaomer,3540 and in the thirteenth7969 6240 year8141 they rebelled.4775

5  And in the fourteenth702 6240 year8141 came935 Chedorlaomer,3540 and the kings4428 that834 were with854 him, and smote5221 853 the Rephaims7497 in Ashteroth Karnaim,6255 and the Zuzims2104 in Ham,1990 and the Emims368 in Shaveh Kiriathaim,7741

6  And the Horites2752 in their mount2042 Seir,8165 unto5704 El-paran,364 which834 is by5921 the wilderness.4057

7  And they returned,7725 and came935 to413 En-mishpat,5880 which1931 is Kadesh,6946 and smote5221 853 all3605 the country7704 of the Amalekites,6003 and also1571 853 the Amorites,567 that dwelt3427 in Hazezon-tamar.2688

8  And there went out3318 the king4428 of Sodom,5467 and the king4428 of Gomorrah,6017 and the king4428 of Admah,126 and the king4428 of Zeboiim,6636 and the king4428 of Bela1106 (the same1931 is Zoar)6820 and they joined6186 battle4421 with854 them in the vale6010 of Siddim;7708

9  With854 Chedorlaomer3540 the king4428 of Elam,5867 and with Tidal8413 king4428 of nations,1471 and Amraphel569 king4428 of Shinar,8152 and Arioch746 king4428 of Ellasar;495 four702 kings4428 with854 five.2568

10  And the vale6010 of Siddim7708 was full of slime pits;875 875 2564 and the kings4428 of Sodom5467 and Gomorrah6017 fled,5127 and fell5307 there;8033 and they that remained7604 fled5127 to the mountain.2022

11  And they took3947 853 all3605 the goods7399 of Sodom5467 and Gomorrah,6017 and all3605 their victuals,400 and went their way.1980

12  And they took3947 853 Lot,3876 Abram's87 brother's251 son,1121 who1931 dwelt3427 in Sodom,5467 and his goods,7399 and departed.1980

13  And there came935 one that had escaped,6412 and told5046 Abram87 the Hebrew;5680 for he1931 dwelt7931 in the plain436 of Mamre4471 the Amorite,567 brother251 of Eshcol,812 and brother251 of Aner:6063 and these1992 were confederate1167 1285 with Abram.87

14  And when Abram87 heard8085 that3588 his brother251 was taken captive,7617 he armed7324 853 his trained2593 servants, born3211 in his own house,1004 three7969 hundred3967 and eighteen,8083 6240 and pursued7291 them unto5704 Dan.1835

15  And he divided himself2505 against5921 them, he1931 and his servants,5650 by night,3915 and smote5221 them, and pursued7291 them unto5704 Hobah,2327 which834 is on the left hand4480 8040 of Damascus.1834

16  And he brought back7725 853 all3605 the goods,7399 and also1571 brought again7725 his brother251 853 Lot,3876 and his goods,7399 and 853 the women802 also,1571 and the people.5971

17  And the king4428 of Sodom5467 went out3318 to meet7125 him after310 his return7725 from the slaughter4480 5221 of 853 Chedorlaomer,3540 and of the kings4428 that834 were with854 him, at413 the valley6010 of Shaveh,7740 which1931 is the king's4428 dale.6010

18  And Melchizedek4442 king4428 of Salem8004 brought forth3318 bread3899 and wine:3196 and he1931 was the priest3548 of the most high5945 God.410

19  And he blessed1288 him, and said,559 Blessed1288 be Abram87 of the most high5945 God,410 possessor7069 of heaven8064 and earth:776

20  And blessed1288 be the most high5945 God,410 which834 hath delivered4042 thine enemies6862 into thy hand.3027 And he gave5414 him tithes4643 of all.4480 3605

21  And the king4428 of Sodom5467 said559 unto413 Abram,87 Give5414 me the persons,5315 and take3947 the goods7399 to thyself.

22  And Abram87 said559 to413 the king4428 of Sodom,5467 I have lifted up7311 mine hand3027 unto413 the LORD,3068 the most high5945 God,410 the possessor7069 of heaven8064 and earth,776

23  That I will not518 take from a thread4480 2339 even to5704 to a shoelatchet,8288 5275 and that I will not518 take3947 any thing4480 3605 that834 is thine, lest3808 thou shouldest say,559 I589 have made Abram rich:6238 853 87

24  Save1107 only7535 that which834 the young men5288 have eaten,398 and the portion2506 of the men376 which834 went1980 with854 me, Aner,6063 Eshcol,812 and Mamre;4471 let them1992 take3947 their portion.2506


1 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τῇ Αμαρφαλ βασιλέως Σεννααρ Αριωχ βασιλεὺς Ελλασαρ καὶ Χοδολλογομορ βασιλεὺς Αιλαμ καὶ Θαργαλ βασιλεὺς ἐθνῶν

2 ἐποίησαν πόλεμον μετὰ Βαλλα βασιλέως Σοδομων καὶ μετὰ Βαρσα βασιλέως Γομορρας καὶ Σεννααρ βασιλέως Αδαμα καὶ Συμοβορ βασιλέως Σεβωιμ καὶ βασιλέως Βαλακ αὕτη ἐστὶν Σηγωρ

3 πάντες οὗτοι συνεφώνησαν ἐπὶ τὴν φάραγγα τὴν ἁλυκήν αὕτη ἡ θάλασσα τῶν ἁλῶν

4 δώδεκα ἔτη ἐδούλευον τῷ Χοδολλογομορ τῷ δὲ τρισκαιδεκάτῳ ἔτει ἀπέστησαν

5 ἐν δὲ τῷ τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτῳ ἔτει ἦλθεν Χοδολλογομορ καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ κατέκοψαν τοὺς γίγαντας τοὺς ἐν Ασταρωθ Καρναιν καὶ ἔθνη ἰσχυρὰ ἅμα αὐτοῖς καὶ τοὺς Ομμαίους τοὺς ἐν Σαυη τῇ πόλει

6 καὶ τοὺς Χορραίους τοὺς ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν Σηιρ ἕως τῆς τερεμίνθου τῆς Φαραν ἥ ἐστιν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

7 καὶ ἀναστρέψαντες ἤλθοσαν ἐπὶ τὴν πηγὴν τῆς κρίσεως αὕτη ἐστὶν Καδης καὶ κατέκοψαν πάντας τοὺς ἄρχοντας Αμαληκ καὶ τοὺς Αμορραίους τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Ασασανθαμαρ

8 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδομων καὶ βασιλεὺς Γομορρας καὶ βασιλεὺς Αδαμα καὶ βασιλεὺς Σεβωιμ καὶ βασιλεὺς Βαλακ αὕτη ἐστὶν Σηγωρ καὶ παρετάξαντο αὐτοῖς εἰς πόλεμον ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι τῇ ἁλυκῇ

9 πρὸς Χοδολλογομορ βασιλέα Αιλαμ καὶ Θαργαλ βασιλέα ἐθνῶν καὶ Αμαρφαλ βασιλέα Σεννααρ καὶ Αριωχ βασιλέα Ελλασαρ οἱ τέσσαρες βασιλεῖς πρὸς τοὺς πέντε

10 ἡ δὲ κοιλὰς ἡ ἁλυκὴ φρέατα φρέατα ἀσφάλτου ἔφυγεν δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδομων καὶ βασιλεὺς Γομορρας καὶ ἐνέπεσαν ἐκεῖ οἱ δὲ καταλειφθέντες εἰς τὴν ὀρεινὴν ἔφυγον

11 ἔλαβον δὲ τὴν ἵππον πᾶσαν τὴν Σοδομων καὶ Γομορρας καὶ πάντα τὰ βρώματα αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπῆλθον

12 ἔλαβον δὲ καὶ τὸν Λωτ υἱὸν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ Αβραμ καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπῴχοντο ἦν γὰρ κατοικῶν ἐν Σοδομοις

13 παραγενόμενος δὲ τῶν ἀνασωθέντων τις ἀπήγγειλεν Αβραμ τῷ περάτῃ αὐτὸς δὲ κατῴκει πρὸς τῇ δρυὶ τῇ Μαμβρη ὁ Αμορις τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ Εσχωλ καὶ ἀδελφοῦ Αυναν οἳ ἦσαν συνωμόται τοῦ Αβραμ

14 ἀκούσας δὲ Αβραμ ὅτι ᾐχμαλώτευται Λωτ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ ἠρίθμησεν τοὺς ἰδίους οἰκογενεῖς αὐτοῦ τριακοσίους δέκα καὶ ὀκτώ καὶ κατεδίωξεν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν ἕως Δαν

15 καὶ ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τὴν νύκτα αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐδίωξεν αὐτοὺς ἕως Χωβα ἥ ἐστιν ἐν ἀριστερᾷ Δαμασκοῦ

16 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν πᾶσαν τὴν ἵππον Σοδομων καὶ Λωτ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ ἀπέστρεψεν καὶ τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὸν λαόν

17 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδομων εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῷ μετὰ τὸ ἀναστρέψαι αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς κοπῆς τοῦ Χοδολλογομορ καὶ τῶν βασιλέων τῶν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα τὴν Σαυη τοῦτο ἦν τὸ πεδίον βασιλέως

18 καὶ Μελχισεδεκ βασιλεὺς Σαλημ ἐξήνεγκεν ἄρτους καὶ οἶνον ἦν δὲ ἱερεὺς τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ὑψίστου

19 καὶ ηὐλόγησεν τὸν Αβραμ καὶ εἶπεν εὐλογημένος Αβραμ τῷ θεῷ τῷ ὑψίστῳ ὃς ἔκτισεν τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν

20 καὶ εὐλογητὸς ὁ θεὸς ὁ ὕψιστος ὃς παρέδωκεν τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου ὑποχειρίους σοι καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ δεκάτην ἀπὸ πάντων

21 εἶπεν δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδομων πρὸς Αβραμ δός μοι τοὺς ἄνδρας τὴν δὲ ἵππον λαβὲ σεαυτῷ

22 εἶπεν δὲ Αβραμ πρὸς βασιλέα Σοδομων ἐκτενῶ τὴν χεῖρά μου πρὸς τὸν θεὸν τὸν ὕψιστον ὃς ἔκτισεν τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν

23 εἰ ἀπὸ σπαρτίου ἕως σφαιρωτῆρος ὑποδήματος λήμψομαι ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν σῶν ἵνα μὴ εἴπῃς ὅτι ἐγὼ ἐπλούτισα τὸν Αβραμ

24 πλὴν ὧν ἔφαγον οἱ νεανίσκοι καὶ τῆς μερίδος τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν συμπορευθέντων μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ Εσχωλ Αυναν Μαμβρη οὗτοι λήμψονται μερίδα

1 Factum est autem in illo tempore, ut Amraphel rex Senaar, et Arioch rex Ponti, et Chodorlahomor rex Elamitarum, et Thadal rex gentium

2 inirent bellum contra Bara regem Sodomorum, et contra Bersa regem Gomorrhæ, et contra Sennaab regem Adamæ, et contra Semeber regem Seboim, contraque regem Balæ, ipsa est Segor.

3 Omnes hi convenerunt in vallem Silvestrem, quæ nunc est mare salis.

4 Duodecim enim annis servierunt Chodorlahomor, et tertiodecimo anno recesserunt ab eo.

5 Igitur quartodecimo anno venit Chodorlahomor, et reges qui erant cum eo: percusseruntque Raphaim in Astarothcarnaim, et Zuzim cum eis, et Emim in Save Cariathaim,

6 et Chorræos in montibus Seir, usque ad Campestria Pharan, quæ est in solitudine.

7 Reversique sunt, et venerunt ad fontem Misphat, ipsa est Cades: et percusserunt omnem regionem Amalecitarum, et Amorrhæum, qui habitabat in Asasonthamar.

8 Et egressi sunt rex Sodomorum, et rex Gomorrhæ, rexque Adamæ, et rex Seboim, necnon et rex Balæ, quæ est Segor: et direxerunt aciem contra eos in valle Silvestri:

9 scilicet adversus Chodorlahomor regem Elamitarum, et Thadal regem Gentium, et Amraphel regem Sennaar, et Arioch regem Ponti: quatuor reges adversus quinque.

10 Vallis autem Silvestris habebat puteos multos bituminis. Itaque rex Sodomorum, et Gomorrhæ, terga verterunt, cecideruntque ibi: et qui remanserant, fugerunt ad montem.

11 Tulerunt autem omnem substantiam Sodomorum et Gomorrhæ, et universa quæ ad cibum pertinent, et abierunt:

12 necnon et Lot, et substantiam ejus, filium fratris Abram, qui habitabat in Sodomis.

13 Et ecce unus, qui evaserat, nuntiavit Abram Hebræo, qui habitabat in convalle Mambre Amorrhæi, fratris Escol, et fratris Aner: hi enim pepigerant fœdus cum Abram.

14 Quod cum audisset Abram, captum videlicet Lot fratrem suum, numeravit expeditos vernaculos suos trecentos decem et octo: et persecutus est usque Dan.

15 Et divisis sociis, irruit super eos nocte: percussitque eos, et persecutus est eos usque Hoba, quæ est ad lævam Damasci.

16 Reduxitque omnem substantiam, et Lot fratrem suum cum substantia illius, mulieres quoque et populum.

17 Egressus est autem rex Sodomorum in occursum ejus postquam reversus est a cæde Chodorlahomor, et regum qui cum eo erant in valle Save, quæ est vallis regis.

18 At vero Melchisedech rex Salem, proferens panem et vinum, erat enim sacerdos Dei altissimi,

19 benedixit ei, et ait: Benedictus Abram Deo excelso, qui creavit cælum et terram:

20 et benedictus Deus excelsus, quo protegente, hostes in manibus tuis sunt. Et dedit ei decimas ex omnibus.

21 Dixit autem rex Sodomorum ad Abram: Da mihi animas, cetera tolle tibi.

22 Qui respondit ei: Levo manum meam ad Dominum Deum excelsum possessorem cæli et terræ,

23 quod a filo subtegminis usque ad corigiam caligæ, non accipiam ex omnibus quæ tua sunt, ne dicas: Ego ditavi Abram:

24 exceptis his, quæ comederunt juvenes, et partibus virorum, qui venerunt mecum, Aner, Escol et Mambre: isti accipient partes suas.
