Bible Commentary for Genesis 13:8

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 13:8


13:6 The land was not able to bear them - The place was too strait for them, and they had not room for their flocks.

13:7 And the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled in the land - This made the quarrel, Very dangerous; if Abram and Lot cannot agree to feed their flocks together, it is well if the common enemy do not come upon them and plunder them both. Very scandalous: No doubt the eyes of all the neighbours were upon them, because of the singularity of their religion, and the extraordinary sanctity they professed; and notice would soon be taken of this quarrel, and improvement made of it to their reproach by the Canaanites and Perizzites.

13:10 The garden of the Lord - That is, paradise.
