Book of Genesis  Chapter 13

Abraham and Lot part company. God promises Canaan to Abraham and his descendants. 

GENESIS 13:1  And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he  had, and Lot with him, into the south.

GENESIS 13:2  And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

GENESIS 13:3  And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the  place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;

GENESIS 13:4  Unto the place of the altar, which he had make there at the first:  and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.

GENESIS 13:5  And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and  tents.

GENESIS 13:6  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.

GENESIS 13:7  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.

GENESIS 13:8  And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between  me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.

GENESIS 13:9  Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee,  from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if  thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

GENESIS 13:10  And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that  it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and  Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou  comest unto Zoar.

GENESIS 13:11  Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east:  and they separated themselves the one from the other.

GENESIS 13:12  Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities  of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

GENESIS 13:13  But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD  exceedingly.

GENESIS 13:14  And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him,  Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and  southward, and eastward, and westward:

GENESIS 13:15  For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to  thy seed for ever.

GENESIS 13:16  And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man  can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

GENESIS 13:17  Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth  of it; for I will give it unto thee.

GENESIS 13:18  Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of  Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
