“And the land was not able to beare them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.”
King James Version (KJV)
3. And hee went on his iourneyes from the South, euen to Beth-el, vnto the place where his tent had bene at the beginning, betweene Beth-el and Hai: 4. Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the Name of the LORD. 5. ¶ And Lot also which went with Abram, had flocks and heards, & tents. 6. And the land was not able to beare them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together. 7. And there was a strife betweene the heardmen of Abrams cattell, and the heardmen of Lots cattell: And the Canaanite, and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land. 8. And Abram said vnto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, betweene mee and thee, and betweene my heardmen and thy heardmen: for wee bee brethren. 9. Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thy selfe, I pray thee, from mee: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will goe to the right: or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will goe to the left.
