Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 14:12

_ _ they took Lot ... and his goods, and departed — How would the conscience of that young man now upbraid him for his selfish folly and ingratitude in withdrawing from his kind and pious relative! Whenever we go out of the path of duty, we put ourselves away from God’s protection, and cannot expect that the choice we make will be for our lasting good.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 14:1-12.
