Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 13:7

_ _ And there was a strife — Abraham’s character appears here in a most amiable light. Having a strong sense of religion, he was afraid of doing anything that might tend to injure its character or bring discredit on its name, and he rightly judged that such unhappy effects would be produced if two persons whom nature and grace had so closely connected should come to a rupture [Genesis 13:8]. Waiving his right to dictate, he gave the freedom of choice to Lot. The conduct of Abraham was not only disinterested and peaceable, but generous and condescending in an extraordinary degree, exemplifying the Scripture precepts (Matthew 6:32; Romans 12:10, Romans 12:11; Philippians 2:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 13:7

And the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled in the land — This made the quarrel, Very dangerous; if Abram and Lot cannot agree to feed their flocks together, it is well if the common enemy do not come upon them and plunder them both. Very scandalous: No doubt the eyes of all the neighbours were upon them, because of the singularity of their religion, and the extraordinary sanctity they professed; and notice would soon be taken of this quarrel, and improvement made of it to their reproach by the Canaanites and Perizzites.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the (d) Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

(d) Who seeing their contention, might blaspheme God and destroy them.
