Genesis 13:8-9

Context

13:8 Abram said to Lot, “Let there be no quarreling between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are close relatives. 1  13:9 Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself now from me. If you go 2  to the left, then I’ll go to the right, but if you go to the right, then I’ll go to the left.”

1 tn Heb “men, brothers [are] we.” Here “brothers” describes the closeness of the relationship, but could be misunderstood if taken literally, since Abram was Lot’s uncle.

2 tn The words “you go” have been supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons both times in this verse.
