14:1. In the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goiim, 2. These kings made war with Bera king of Sodom, Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, Schemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar).

3. And all these joined forces in the Valley of Siddim (that is, the Salt Sea). 4. Twelve years they had served Chedorlaomer, but in the thirteenth year they rebelled. 5. In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him came and defeated the Rephaiim in Ashterothkarnaiim, the Zuzim in Ham, the Emim in Shavehkiriathaim, 6. and the Horiites in their hill country in Seir as far as El-paran on the border of the wilderness. 7. Then they turned back and came to En-misphat (that is Kadesh) and defeated all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who were dwelling in Hazazontamar. 8. Then the king of Sodom, the king of Gomorrah, the king of Admah, the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar) went out, and they joined battle in the valley of Siddim 9. with Chedorlaomer king of Elam, king of Goiim, Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar, four kings against five. 10. Now the Valley of Siddim was full of bitumen pits, and as the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, some fell into them, and the rest fled to the hill country. 11. So the enemy took all the possessions of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way. 12. They also took Lot, the son of Abram’s brother, who was dwelling in Sodom, and his possessions, and went their way. 13. Then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew, who was living by the oaks of Mamre the brother of Eschcol and Aner. 14. When Aner heard that his kinsman had been taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, 318 of them, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15. And he divided his forces against them by night, he and his servants, and defeated them and pursued them to Hobah, north of Damascus. 16. Then he brought back all the possessions, and also brought back his kinsman Lot with his possessions, and the women and the people.
