Abram and Lot Separate

131 So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, with his wife and everything he had, and Lot went with him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Genesis 13:1

Commentary on Genesis 13:1-4

(Read Genesis 13:1-4)

Abram was very rich: he was very heavy, so the Hebrew word is; for riches are a burden; and they that will be rich, do but load themselves with thick clay, Mark 10:23,24. Nay, outward prosperity, if well managed, is an ornament to piety, and an opportunity for doing more good. Abram removed to Beth-el. His altar was gone, so that he could not offer sacrifice; but he called on the name of the Lord. You may as soon find a living man without breath as one of God's people without prayer.
