“And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.”
King James Version (KJV)
14:21 Give me the souls, and take thou the substance - So the Hebrew reads it. Here he fairly begs the persons, but as freely bestows the goods on Abram. Gratitude teaches us to recompense to the utmost of our power those that have undergone fatigues, or been at expence for our service.
