Bible: Gen 14:10-16

14:10 Now the Valley of Siddim was full of tar pits. 1  When the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, they fell into them, 2  but some survivors 3  fled to the hills. 4  14:11 The four victorious kings 5  took all the possessions and food of Sodom and Gomorrah and left. 14:12 They also took Abram’s nephew 6  Lot and his possessions when 7  they left, for Lot 8  was living in Sodom. 9 

14:13 A fugitive 10  came and told Abram the Hebrew. 11  Now Abram was living by the oaks 12  of Mamre the Amorite, the brother 13  of Eshcol and Aner. (All these were allied by treaty 14  with Abram.) 15  14:14 When Abram heard that his nephew 16  had been taken captive, he mobilized 17  his 318 trained men who had been born in his household, and he pursued the invaders 18  as far as Dan. 19  14:15 Then, during the night, 20  Abram 21  divided his forces 22  against them and defeated them. He chased them as far as Hobah, which is north 23  of Damascus. 14:16 He retrieved all the stolen property. 24  He also brought back his nephew Lot and his possessions, as well as the women and the rest of 25  the people.
