5Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents.

6But the land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together. (Genesis 13:5-6, NIV)

8So Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers.

9Is not the whole land before you? Let’s part company. If you go to the left, I’ll go to the right; if you go to the right, I’ll go to the left.” (Genesis 13:8-9, NIV)

10Lot looked up and saw that the whole plain of the Jordan was well watered, like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, toward Zoar. (This was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)

11So Lot chose for himself the whole plain of the Jordan and set out toward the east. The two men parted company: (Gen 13:10-11, NIV)
