Then the five kings drew up their battle lines in the Valley of Siddim to fight against Kedorlaomer and his three allies. The four kings won the battle and Bera and Birsha fled. Kedorlaomer and his allies then went to Sodom and Gomorrah and seized all their goods. Additionally they carried of Lot and his possessions, because he was living in Sodom.
