Abram, his wife, and Lot went up From Egypt into the Negeb.
Abram was very rich in livestock, silver and in gold. Abram journeyed on from the Negeb as far as Bethel, between Bethel and AI. He traveled to the place where he first built an altar to the Lord.
Lot had flocks and herds and tents.
At this point Abram and Lot seperated because both of the families could not live in the same place
Abram let Lot choose which way that he would like to go. Abram ws the elder in the family at that time. Abram could have chosen and Lot would have to go where was left. Lot chose the valley where Sodom and Gomorrah was. Abram went toward Mamre.
