John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 14:4

Twelve years they served him — The Sodomites were the posterity of Canaan, whom Noah had pronounced a servant to Shem, from whom Elam descended. Thus soon did that prophecy begin to be fulfilled. In the thirteenth year, beginning to be weary of their subjection, they rebelled — Denied their tribute, and attempted to shake off the yoke.
