Genesis 14 (asv)
14:13And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew: now he dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner; and these were confederate with Abram. 14:14And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued as far as Dan. 14:15And he divided himself against them by night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. 14:16And he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
14:17And the king of Sodom went out to meet him, after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him, at the vale of Shaveh (the same is the King's Vale). 14:18And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was priest of God Most High. 14:19And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth: 14:20and blessed be God Most High, who hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him a tenth of all. 14:21And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. 14:22And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted up my hand unto Jehovah, God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth, 14:23that I will not take a thread nor a shoe-latchet nor aught that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: 14:24save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men that went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre. Let them take their portion.
