ABRAM AND LOT TRAVEL TO A NEW LAND – Abram, his wife Sarah, and Lot and his family left for Egypt. They took everything they owned and traveled to the land of Canaan. Abram was rich with many cattle, silver and gold. Lot also had many sheep, cattle and tents. Abram and Lot had so many animals that the land could not support them. The animals began to fight. Abram and Lot did not want to argue so they decided to separate. Lot looked around and saw that the whole Jordan Valley was like the Lord’s garden. Lot took the best land and moved there. Lot lived among the cities in the Jordan Valley. He moved very near to Sodom. The people of Sodom were very evil. They were always sinning against God. Abram lived in the land of Canaan. After Lot left, the lord said to Abram: ”All this land that you see I will give to you and your descendants forever, I will give you many descendants and if anyone could count the dust on the earth, he could count your people.”
ABRAHAM IS VISITED BY THREE ANGELS – Abraham was sitting at the door of his tent. He looked up and saw three men standing near him. ”My Lord’s if I have now found favor in your sight, do not pass by, I beg you. Let a little water be fetched and wash your feet and rest yourselves under the tree. I will bring bread for you, so you can regain your strength. Then you may continue your journey.” Abraham took butter and milk, and meat and set it before the men. And they ate. ”Where is Sarah , your wife?” Abraham said: ”In the tent.” And one of the men said: ”Sarah your wife shall have a son.” Sarah, standing in the tent doorway behind him, heard this and began to laugh, and said: “I’m too old.” And the Lord said: ” Why did Sarah laugh, saying she is too old to have a child? Sarah shall have a son. ” The Lord did as he had promised, and Sarah bore Abraham a son in his old age at the time chosen by God, and Abraham called the son Isaac, a name which means ’He will laugh.’
SODOM AND GOMORRAH – In the evening Lot was sitting near the city gate and saw two angels coming to Sodom. Lot said: ”Please come to my house and spend the night. Then tomorrow you may continue your journey.” ”No, we will spend the night in the city’s public square. Do you have any relatives in this city? If you do tell them to leave because we are going to destroy this city.” Lot told his son-in-law to be that the city was about to be destroyed and they needed to leave. But he thought Lot was joking. At dawn the next morning the angels begged Lot to hurry. But Lot delayed. So the two men took the hands of Lot, his wife and his two daughters and left the city and told them not to look back. As Lots family was running, his wife looked back, when she did, she became a pillar of salt. Then the Lord destroyed the whole Jordan Valley and everyone living in the cities and even all the plants.
