    Definitions for Genesis 14:16

    Lot - Portion; destiny; fate.

    Clarke's Commentary on Genesis 14:16

    And he brought back - the women also - This is brought in by the sacred historian with peculiar interest and tenderness. All who read the account must be in pain for the fate of wives and daughters fallen into the hands of a ferocious, licentious, and victorious soldiery. Other spoils the routed confederates might have left behind; and yet on their swift asses, camels, and dromedaries, have carried off the female captives. However, Abram had disposed his attack so judiciously, and so promptly executed his measures, that not only all the baggage, but all the females also, were recovered.

    Wesley's Notes on Genesis 14:16

    14:16 His brother Lot - That is, his kinsman.
