10 Now the salt valley [consists of] slime-pits. And the king of Sodom fled and the king of Gomorrha, and they fell in there: and they that were left fled to the mountain country. 11 And they took all the cavalry of Sodom and Gomorrha, and all their provisions, and departed. 12 And they took also Lot the son of Abram's brother, and his baggage, and departed, for he dwelt in Sodom. 13 And one of them that had been rescued came and told Abram the Hebrew; and he dwelt by the oak of Mamre the Amorite the brother of Eschol, and the brother of Aunan, who were confederates with Abram. 14 And Abram having heard that Lot his nephew had been taken captive, numbered his own home-born [servants] three hundred and eighteen, and pursued after them to Dan. 15 And he came upon them by night, he and his servants, and he smote them and pursued them as far as Choba, which is on the left of Damascus. 16 And he recovered all the cavalry of Sodom, and he recovered Lot his nephew, and all his possessions, and the women and the people. 17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him, after he returned from the slaughter of Chodollogomor, and the kings with him, to the valley of Saby; this was the plain of the kings.

10 ἡ δὲ κοιλὰς ἡ ἁλυκή, φρέατα ἀσφάλτου. ἔφυγε δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδόμων καὶ βασιλεὺς Γομόρρας καὶ ἐνέπεσαν ἐκεῖ, οἱ δὲ καταλειφθέντες εἰς τὴν ὀρεινὴν ἔφυγον. 11 ἔλαβον δὲ τὴν ἵππον πᾶσαν τὴν Σοδόμων καὶ Γομόρρας καὶ πάντα τὰ βρώματα αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπῆλθον. 12 ἔλαβον δὲ καὶ τὸν Λὼτ τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ ῞Αβραμ καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπῴχοντο· ἦν γὰρ κατοικῶν ἐν Σοδόμοις. 13 Παραγενόμενος δὲ τῶν ἀνασωθέντων τις ἀπήγγειλεν ῞Αβραμ τῷ περάτῃ· αὐτὸς δὲ κατῴκει παρὰ τῇ δρυῒ τῇ Μαμβρῇ ᾿Αμορραίου τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ ᾿Εσχὼλ καὶ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ Αὐνάν, οἳ ἦσαν συνωμόται τοῦ ῞Αβραμ. 14 ἀκούσας δὲ ῞Αβραμ ὅτι ᾐχμαλώτευται Λὼτ ὁ ἀδελφιδοῦς αὐτοῦ, ἠρίθμησε τοὺς ἰδίους οἰκογενεῖς αὐτοῦ, τριακοσίους δέκα καὶ ὀκτώ, καὶ κατεδίωξεν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν ἕως Δάν. 15 καὶ ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς τὴν νύκτα αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς καὶ κατεδίωξεν αὐτοὺς ἕως Χοβά, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν ἀριστερᾷ Δαμασκοῦ. 16 καὶ ἀπέστρεψε πᾶσαν τὴν ἵππον Σοδόμων, καὶ Λὼτ τὸν ἀδελφιδοῦν αὐτοῦ ἀπέστρεψε καὶ πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὸν λαόν. 17 ᾿Εξῆλθε δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδόμων εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῷ, μετὰ τὸ ὑποστρέψαι αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς κοπῆς τοῦ Χοδολλογομὸρ καὶ τῶν βασιλέων τῶν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα τοῦ Σαβὺ (τοῦτο ἦν τὸ πεδίον τῶν βασιλέων).
