1 Now after our departure from Mitsrayim, a faction arose among our people upon seeing the great wealth which Pharaoh had entrusted to us, for they desired property which they could call their own.

2 Lot also was among them, which thing grieved me greatly, but seeing they would not be reconciled, we gave unto them a portion of the common property and they departed from us under Lot’s direction and settled in the Valley of the Yardĕn River.

3 There they went from place to place as their flocks needed pasture until they reached the city of Seḏom where they mingled with the inhabitants and became one with them.

4 Lot also built a house in Seḏom and settled there, but of all that company that went out from us, only Lot maintained his integrity and did not violate the covenants of his kehunnah nor bow to heathen mighty ones.

5 Nevertheless, Lot did not walk perfectly in the way of the Fathers for he dwelt not among the people of Elohim but built his own house and he coveted his own property that he should govern it rather than holding all things common with the qodeshim.

6 Nevertheless, Lot did continue to serve 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 loved him and his family and his property grew very large.

7 But I was grieved in my heart that Lot had parted from me for he had stood at my right hand and had been instructed in a better way.
