Lot

Uncle Abraham, you left the land that made you wealthy.
That was strange,
but I came with you anyway to this land of Canaan.

Abraham

God had us leave that land of idols, Lot. I’m glad you came with me.
It was dangerous traveling through alien lands for months.
Every step of the way I relied on God’s protection.

Prompter & Echoes

Trust in God!

Lot

We now have a problem, uncle Abraham.
My herdsmen are fighting with yours over the best grazing land.

Abraham

You choose the more fertile land, nephew Lot, and settle there.

Lot

I choose the best land, and settle my family in the city of Sodom.
Soon after, five pagan kings unite, and attack the city!
Help! They are too strong for us!

Prompter & Echoes

Lot’s city surrenders!

Abraham

Herdsmen, arm yourselves! Those greedy kings captured Sodom!
They stole much plunder, along with my nephew Lot and his family. We will rescue them. Fight as I have trained you.
We number only 318,
but we will divide our forces by night and ambush them.

Prompter & Echoes

Fight by faith!

Abraham

We pursue the five kings beyond Damascus and defeat them.
We rescue the captives, and get back the plunder.

Lot

Oh, who is this who comes to meet us on our way back?

Abraham

It is Melchizedek, king of righteousness.

Prompter & Echoes

Priest of the Most High God!

Melchizedek

Abraham, man of courageous faith, I bring to you and your exhausted men bread and wine.
Rest as we dine together in God’s presence.

Abraham

We are deeply grateful. I rejoice to find someone
in this idolatrous land that still serves the one true God.

Melchizedek

Blessed be Abraham of God Most High who owns heaven and earth
and delivered your enemies into your hand.

Abraham

Lot, I believe that this meeting with Melchizedek is very significant.

Lot

But uncle, why do give him a tenth of the spoils that you recaptured?

Abraham

He is priest of the Most High God who rescued you, Lot,
and not an ordinary man.
What we give him we actually give to God.

Prompter & Echoes

Praise our Most High God!
