Bible: Genesis 14:21-24

14:21 Then the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people and take the possessions for yourself.” 14:22 But Abram replied to the king of Sodom, “I raise my hand 1  to the Lord, the Most High God, Creator of heaven and earth, and vow 2  14:23 that I will take nothing 3  belonging to you, not even a thread or the strap of a sandal. That way you can never say, ‘It is I 4  who made Abram rich.’ 14:24 I will take nothing 5  except compensation for what the young men have eaten. 6  As for the share of the men who went with me – Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre – let them take their share.”
