1 And it was in the days of Amrafel, king of Sennaar, Arioch, king of Ellasar, Kedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Fidal, king of Goim,
2 they went to war against Bera, king of Sodom, against Birshe, king of Gomorrah, Shinav, king of Adma, Shemever, king of Seboim, and against king Bela, who is Zoar.
3 All these united in the valley of Siddim, where [now] the Salt Sea.
4 For twelve years they were enslaved to Kedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they were outraged.
5 In the fourteenth year, Kedorlaomer and the kings who were with him came and defeated Rephaim in Ashteroth-Karnayim, Zuzimov in Gama, Emimov in Shave-Kiriaphaim,
6 and the Horites in their mountain Seir, to El-Faran, which is in the wilderness.
7 And returning from there, they came to the source of Mishpat, which is Kadesh, and they struck the whole country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites living in Hatzatson-Tamara.
eight And the king of Sodom, the king of Gomorrah, the king of Adma, the king of Seboim, and the king of Bela, who is Zoar, came out; and they fought with them in the valley of Siddim,
nine with Kedorlaomer, the king of Elam, Fidal, the king of Goim, Amrafel, the king of Sennaar, Arioch, the king of Ellasar, four of the king against five.
ten In the Siddim valley, there were many tar pits. And the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, having fled, fell into them, and the rest fled to the mountains.
eleven The [conquerors] took all the property of Sodom and Gomorrah and their entire supply and left.
12 And they took Lot, the nephew of Avramov, who lived in Sodom, and his property left.

13 And one of the survivors came and informed Abram the Hebrew, who lived then at the oak grove of Mamre, the Amorite, brother Eshkol and brother Aner, who were allies of Abram.
fourteen When Abram heard that his relative was taken prisoner, he armed his slaves born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued [the enemies] to Dan;
fifteen and, having split, [attacked] them at night, he himself and his slaves, and smote them, and pursued them to Hova, which is on the left side of Damascus;
16 and he returned all the property of Lot, his kindred, and he returned his property, as well as women and the people.

17 When he returned after the defeat of Kedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him in the valley of Shave, which [now] is the royal valley;
18 and Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine, - he was a priest of the Most High God, -
19 and blessed him, and said: Blessed is Abram from the Most High God, the Lord of heaven and earth;
20 and blessed is the Most High God, who delivered your enemies into your hands. [Abram] gave him a tenth of everything.

21 And the king of Sodom said to Abram: give me the people, and take the estate for yourself.
22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom: I raise my hand to the Lord God the Most High, the Lord of heaven and earth,
23 that I won’t even take the thread and belt from my shoes from all of you, lest you say: I have enriched Abram;
24 in addition to having eaten the youths, and in addition to the share belonging to the people who went with me; Aner, Eshkol and Mamry let them take their share.
