night, he and his servants

by JPS / Varda Books
night, he and his servants deployed against them and defeated them; and he pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus. 16He brought back all the possessions; he also brought back his kinsman Lot and his possessions, and the women and the rest of the people. 17When he returned from defeating Chedorlaomer and the kings with him, the king of Sodom came out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh, which is the Valley of the King. 18And King Melchizedek of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was a priest of God Most High. c 19He blessed him, saying, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. 20And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your foes into your hand.” And [Abram] gave him a tenth of everything. 21Then the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the possessions for yourself.” 22But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I sweard to the LORD, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth: 23I will not take so much as a thread or a sandal strap of what is yours; you shall not say, ‘It is I who made Abram rich.’ 24For me, nothing but what my servants have used up; as for the share of the men who went with me—Aner, Eshkol, and Mamre—let them take their share.” 15 Some time later, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision. He said, “Fear not, Abram, I am a shield to you; Your reward shall be very great.” 2But Abram said, “O Lord GOD, what can You give me, seeing that I shall die childless, a-and the one in charge of my household is Dammesek c Heb. El ‘Elyon. d Lit. “lift up my hand.” a-a Meaning of Heb. uncertain. 25 16 וישב את כל־הרכש וגם את־לוט אחיו ורכשו השיב וגם את־הנשים ואת־ העם : 17 ויצא מלך־סדם לקראתו אחרי שובו מהכות את־כדר־לעמר ואת־המלכים אשר אתו אל־עמק שוה הוא עמק המלך : 18 ומלכי־צדק מלך שלם הוציא לחם ויין והוא כהן לאל עליון : 19 ויברכהו ויאמר ברוך אברם לאל עליון קנה שמים וארץ : 20 וברוך אל עליון אשר־מגן צריך בידך ויתן־לו מעשר מכל : 21 ויאמר מלך־סדם אל־אברם תן־לי הנפש והרכש קח־לך : 22 ויאמר אברם אל־מלך סדם הרימתי ידי אל־יהוה אל עליון קנה שמים וארץ : 23 אם־מחוט ועד שרוך־נעל ואם־אקח מכל־אשר־לך ולא תאמר אני העשרתי את־אברם : 24 בלעדי רק אשר אכלו הנערים וחלק האנשים אשר הלכו אתי ענר אשכל וממרא הם יקחו חלקם : ס טו אחר ׀ הדברים האלה היה דבר־יהוה אל־אברם במחזה לאמר אל־תירא אברם אנכי מגן לך שכרך הרבה מאד: 2 ויאמר אברם אדני יהוה מה־תתן־לי ואנכי הולך ערירי ובן־משק ביתי הוא
