Abram and Lot separate.
1. How did Abram deal with the strife between his and Lot's herdsmen?
v 8 and 9 Abram said to Lot, “Please, let there be no strife between you and me, and between your herdsmen and my herdsmen; for we are relatives. Isn’t the whole land before you? Please separate yourself from me. If you go to the left hand, then I will go to the right. Or if you go to the right hand, then I will go to the left.”
2. Why did Lot choose to go to the plain of Jordan ?
v 10 Lot ... saw all the plain of the Jordan, that it was well-watered everywhere ...
3. Why was Lot's decision to move to live near Sodom not a good one?

- v 1 to 9 Abram and his nephew Lot leave Egypt and move back to Bethel where they have to separate because of shortage of pasture for their herds
- v 10 to 13 Lot chooses to live in the well-watered plain of Jordan near the wicked men of Sodom, so Abram stays in Canaan
- v 14 to 18 God shows Abram the promised land and tells him that his offspring will be as numerous as the dust of the earth. Abram moves to Hebron where he builds an altar
