At the separation from Abraham, Lot took what could be called the choicest portion of the land. After that, God appeared to Abraham and said to him, “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are-northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever” (Genesis 13:14-18).
