Passage: Genesis 12:8 - Genesis 13:12
8 And there was a famine in the land; and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine became grievous in the land.
9 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold, now I know thee to be a fair woman to look upon; therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife; and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive; say I pray thee unto them, I am his sister; that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.
10 And it came to pass, that when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman, that she was very fair.
11 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commanded her to be brought before Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
12 And he entreated Abram well for her sake; and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.
13 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues, because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
14 And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What hast thou done unto me in this thing? Why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife? Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her unto me to wife; now therefore, behold I say unto thee, Take thy wife and go thy way.
15 And Pharaoh commanded men concerning him; and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.
Intro Abram journeys out of Egypt -- Separation of Abram and Lot, with their substance -- Abram dwells in Mamre, Lot in the plain toward Sodom.
1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, unto the south. And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
2 And he went on his journey from the south, even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai; unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first; and there Abram called on the name of the Lord.
3 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
4 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. And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle, and the herdmen of Lot's cattle, that they could not dwell together.
5 And the Canaanite, and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
6 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we are brethren.
7 Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me; if thou go to the left hand, then I will go to the right; if thou go to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
8 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt.
9 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east; and they separated themselves the one from the other.
10 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
11 But the men of Sodom becoming sinners, and exceedingly wicked before the Lord, the Lord was angry with them.
12 And the Lord 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;
