Chapter 14

Lot is captured in the battles of the kings—He is rescued by Abram—Melchizedek administers bread and wine and blesses Abram—Abram pays tithes—He declines to accept the spoils of conquest.

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;

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.

3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.

Salt sea

4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.


13 they rebelled

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 Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim,


6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto El-paran, which is by the wilderness.

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 Hazezon-tamar.

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;

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.


10 And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.

11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.

12 And they took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

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.

Abram is called a Hebrew


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 unto Dan.


Servants slaves?

15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.

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.

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.

18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

Melchizedek bread and wine a Priest most high God. They didn’t use Lord? Or Lord God why?

19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

First time we here of tithes of all!

Maybe the first tithes ever paid .

21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.

22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the Lord, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,

23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:

24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.

Chapter 13

Abram returns from Egypt—He and Lot part—The Lord will make Abram’s seed as the dust of the earth in number—Abram settles in Hebron.

1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.

2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

Abram was very Rich cattle silver Gold how did he became so rich?

3 And he went on his journeys from the south even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth-el and Hai;

4 Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the Lord.

5 ¶ And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.

6 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.

Land was not able to bear them or support them.

7 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdmen of Lot’s cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.



8 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 be brethren.

9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.

Plain of Jordan water

Before the Lord had destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, I thought this had not happened yet.

And the Garden of Eden ! Not sure how they could tell where these lands were after the flood

11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.


principle number one if you has a fight with a close friend break up and give yourself distances from each other.

12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.

14 ¶ 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:





15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.

i will give to they seed forever. i am sure he meant as long as the planet is alive. or here.

16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

seed shall be like the dust of the earth

17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.

18 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the Lord.

Chapter 12

Abram will become a great nation—He and his seed will bless all the families of the earth—He travels from Haran to the land of Canaan—Because of famine, he goes down into Egypt—Abram and Sarai are tested in Pharaoh’s court.

1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

Lord told Abram to leave his country! Unto an new land. That must have been tough. Leave your home.

2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

Abram to be a great Nation . Lord will make him. Nice blessings.

3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

I always wounder how much power Lord has behind the scenes in Nation etc building, even right down to individuals what they get. How much does Lord affect us all?

4 So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

Lot went with him

75 years

Left Haran

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Moved to Canaan

6 ¶ And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

7 And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord, who appeared unto him.

Built an Alter what did it look like ? Lord Appeared into him.

8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Beth-el, and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the Lord, and called upon the name of the Lord.





Called upon the name of the Lord. What was the Lord’s name? He used?

9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.


10 ¶ And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.


Went to Egypt

11 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 that thou art a fair woman to look upon:

Fair woman

12 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.

13 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

14 ¶ And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.

16 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.

17 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram’s wife.

Lord plagued Pharaoh house

18 And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?

19 Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.

20 And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

Chapter 11

All men speak the same language—They build the Tower of Babel—The Lord confounds their language and scatters them over all the earth—The generations of Shem include Abram, whose wife is Sarai—Abram leaves Ur and settles in Haran.

1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

Ver 10:31 seems to contradict verse one. Unless 10:31 was talking about different dialects of language but one language. Like Portuguese and Spanish. Otherwise unless they become one speech or language over time. Ver 10:31 said they had different languages at that time.

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.


3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.

Make brick burn them and slime or lime for mortar first cement! Who taught them this ?

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

Tower to reach heaven

Make us a name ?

Scattered abroad whole earth

5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

Lord came down to see the city and tower. Wow!

6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

Lord said people is one

One language

Nothing to restrain them

Which they have imagined to do.

The power of all working to gather.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

Go to

Let us go down

So the Lord must go to and go down to see or visit our planet.

Confound their language, power of Lord to be able to in an instant change everybody’s language so they could not understand each other. Wow. But why? Why not let them grow and understand things?

8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

So the Lord scattered them abroad, how did he do that?

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

Chapter 9

Noah and his sons are commanded to multiply and fill the earth—They are given dominion over all forms of life—The death penalty is decreed for murder—God will not again destroy the earth by a flood—Canaan is cursed; Shem and Japheth are blessed.

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

God Blessed Noah and his sons, gives them commandments, 1. Be fruitful, 2. Multiply 3. Replenish the earth assuming nobody else survived. Also apparently no gay or homosexuals lesbians among them. Homosexuals lesbians would not be able to keep the above commandments.

Be fruitful. Multiply. Replenish the earth. Some commandments. So if could have aborted your babies back then it would have broken this commandment to Multiply. And Replenish the earth.

2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

We are over all living things

3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

Don’t eat each other

5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.

Not sure what this is talking about

6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Death penalty for murder!

because the image of man is the image of God were made after Gods image.

7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

8 ¶ And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

Covenant first one we know of

10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

no more floods

12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

bow in the cloud a rain bow no more mist we now have rain ?

14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

so no more watering the earth by mist but by rain ?

15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

18 ¶ And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth : and Ham is the father of Canaan.


Ham father if Canaan


any from cains family ?

19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.

20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

So Noah drank made and drank wine. And got drunk . First person to get drunk? Who taught him how to make wine?

22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.

24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

So why did he cursed Canaan for telling others he was naked in his tent? What was wrong with that?

25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Cursed Canaan to his brethren

26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

bless shem Canaan shall be his servant. Begining of slavery ?

27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

The Flood ceases—Noah sends forth a dove, which returns with an olive leaf—He releases all living things from the ark—He offers sacrifices—Seedtime, harvest, and seasons are ensured.

    So some how the Lord made Noah feel better, how can the lord do this with our feelings? even though doom a waits others outside the ark? so Lord can control our emotions? Or made the waters less severe. Was it the whole earth or just where Noah was. or where some parts of the of the earth land covered with water longer than other parts?

8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;


9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. why did not the Dove land on the ark on top of it ?

Dove came back.

Waters where on the whole earth answers my question just part of the earth

10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;

Waited 7 more Days then sent the Dove again.

11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

Dave came back with an olive leaf plucked off! Waters were abated.

what does the olive leaf mean?

12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.

so the dove was sent out three times then never seen again.

Noah still waited another 7 days and he again let loose the Dove to see it no more. So three 7 days he waited

13 ¶ And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.

601 first 1 month first day waters were all dried up, and opened the ark and the ground was dry.

14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.

2 Month on the 7 and 20 day earth was still dry.

15 ¶ And God spake unto Noah, saying,

Not the Lord but God spake to Noah.

16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.

Leave the ark.

17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.

Commandment breed be fruitful multiply upon the earth. All on the ark.

18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him:

19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

even creeping things

20 ¶ And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Noah build an altar unto the Lord took every clean beast every clean fowl and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Wonder what this alter looked like? Which are clean beasts which are not. Same with birds. How was this different than Cains offerings or Abel’s? Why burnt offerings? Why does this please the Lord?

21 And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

While the earth remaineth, it will have seedtime harvest, cold heat summer and winter and day and night shall not cease. interesting promise.

as long as the earth remains! so it can be destroyed !
