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

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:

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see tlioc, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they "will kill me, but they will save thee alive.

13 xSay, 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.

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.

7 And there was 5 a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: haud the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelt 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 tbrethren.

9 k 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 liaud, 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 n destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, "even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou contest unto P Zoar.

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