Abram Rescues Lot

Genesis 14:1-Genesis 14:24

Abram lived in Canaan, and Lot in Sodom's land.
Lot thought he made the better choice, but all was not so grand.

Four kings stronger then Sodom's king, came to take their goods one day.
They conquered Lot's land and took all he had and carried poor Lot away.

Now those four kings actually conquered five and Sodom and Lot were a part.
When Abram learned they took his nephew, it hurt him in his heart.

Abram loved Lot and his family. They were Abram's closest kin.
Could Abram fight against four kings? If he did, could he ever win?

Well Abram, he trusted God, so he armed his servants and said,
we are going to war. We are going to win. With God the enemy's dead.

So Abram's servants chased four kings with armies big and strong.
He snuck up to them in the dark and fought them all night long.

When morning came Abram won. The four kings all were shaken.
Abram rescued Lot and Sodom, returning what had been taken.

Sodom's king came out to Abram, to pay him for his time.
But Abram said God won this war I will not take a dime.

And that is why God loved Abram. He gave to God all the glory.
We'll see God call Abram his friend, but that's for another story.
