1 About this time, King Amraphel of Babylonia,
t 14.1 Babylonia: See the note at 10.6-20.
King Arioch of Ellasar, King Chedorlaomer of Elam, and King Tidal of Goiim
14 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;
2 attacked King Bera of Sodom, King Birsha of Gomorrah, King Shinab of Admah, King Shemeber of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, also known as the city of Zoar. 2 That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.
3-4 King Chedorlaomer and his allies had ruled these last five kings for twelve years, but in the thirteenth year the kings rebelled and came together in Siddim Valley, which is now covered by the southern part of the Dead Sea. 3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.
5 A year later King Chedorlaomer and his allies attacked and defeated the Rephaites in Ashteroth-Karnaim, the Zuzites in Ham, and the Emites in Shaveh-Kiriathaim.
5 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
Shaveh...: or, The plain of Kiriathaim
6 They also defeated the Horites in the hill country of Edom,
u 14.6 Edom: The Hebrew text has “Seir,” another name for Edom.
as far as El-Paran, near the desert.
6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness.
Elparan: or, The plain of Paran
7 They went back to the city of Enmishpat, better known as Kadesh. Then they captured all the land that belonged to the Amalekites, and they defeated the Amorites who were living in Hazazon-Tamar.
7 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.
8-9 At Siddim Valley, the armies of the kings of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, and Bela fought the armies of King Chedorlaomer of Elam, King Tidal of Goiim, King Amraphel of Babylonia, and King Arioch of Ellasar. The valley
8 And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;
10 was full of tar pits, and when the troops from Sodom and Gomorrah started running away, some of them fell into the pits. Others escaped to the hill country. 10 And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.
11 Their enemies took everything of value from Sodom and Gomorrah, including their food supplies. 11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.
12 They also captured Abram's nephew Lot, who lived in Sodom. They took him and his possessions and then left. 12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
13 At this time Abram the Hebrew was living near the oaks that belonged to Mamre the Amorite. Mamre and his brothers Eshcol and Aner were Abram's friends. Someone who had escaped from the battle told Abram
13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.
plain: Heb. plains
14 that his nephew Lot had been taken away. Three hundred eighteen of Abram's servants were fighting men, so he took them and followed the enemy as far north as the city of Dan. 14 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.
armed: or, led forth
trained: or, instructed
15 That night, Abram divided up his troops, attacked from all sides, and won a great victory. But some of the enemy escaped to the town of Hobah north of Damascus,
15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
16 and Abram went after them. He brought back his nephew Lot, together with Lot's possessions and the women and everyone else who had been captured. 16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
Abram Is Blessed by Melchizedek
17 Abram returned after he had defeated King Chedorlaomer and the other kings. Then the king of Sodom went to meet Abram in Shaveh Valley, which is also known as King's Valley.
17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.
18 King Melchizedek of Salem was a priest of God Most High. He brought out some bread and wine
14.18-20 He 7.1-10.
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
19 and said to Abram:

“I bless you in the name
of God Most High,
Creator of heaven and earth.
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
20 All praise belongs
to God Most High
for helping you defeat
your enemies.”

Then Abram gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything.
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
21 The king of Sodom said to Abram, “All I want are my people. You can keep everything else.”
21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
persons: Heb. souls
22 Abram answered:
The Lord God Most High made the heavens and the earth. And I have promised him
22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
23 that I won't keep anything of yours, not even a sandal strap or a piece of thread. Then you can never say that you are the one who made me rich. 23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
24 Let my share be the food that my men have eaten. But Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre went with me, so give them their share of what we brought back. 24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.
