x Possessor 1 of heaven and earth;

20 and blessed be God Most High,
who has delivered your enemies into your hand!"
And Abram gave him y a tenth of everything.
21 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give me the persons, but take the goods for yourself." 22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, z "I have lifted my hand 2 to the Lord, God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that a I would not take a thread or a sandal strap or anything that is yours, lest you should say, 'I have made Abram rich.' 24 I will take nothing but what the young men have eaten, and the share of the men who went with me. Let b Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre take their share."
