Chapter Summary

The theory of the composition of Genesis. xiv that the author put forward in 1971 includes the following elements in the story A - F. The story A presents, Verses 1-9: the campaign of the eastern kings, B with Verses * 10-* 11, 13a, * 14-* 16, 21, *22, 23: Abram the noble hero and the king of Sodom. The story C describes Verses 18-20: Abram and Melchizedek and the story D explains Verses 13b and 24: Aner, Eshcol and Mamre. The story E describes Verse 12, parts of verses 14 and 16: the references to Lot and the final part of the verse, verse F shows Glosses in verses 2 (Zoar), 3 (the Salt Sea), 7 (Kadesh), 8 (Zoar), 17 (the King's Vale). The defeat of the enemy was ascribed to Abram when that story was combined with the account of Abram's meeting with Melchizedek.
