We have four things in the story of this chapter.
I. A war with the king of Sodom and his allies, ver. 1-11. II. The captivity of Lot in that
war, ver. 12. III. Abram's
rescue of Lot from that captivity, with the victory he obtained
over the conquerors, ver.
13-16. IV. Abram's return from the expedition,
(ver. 17), with an account
of what passed, 1. Between him and the king of Salem, ver. 18-20. 2. Between him and the
king of Sodom, ver.
21-24. So that here we have that promise to Abram in
part fulfilled, that God would make his name great.
