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 a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray between me and you, and between my herdmen and your herdmen; for we are brothers.
9 Is not the whole land before you? separate yourself from me, I pray you: if you will take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if you depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
