A battle among various kings in the region, for control of the land, resulted in Lot and his family and possessions being captured and taken away. News of this reached Abraham from someone that escaped.
With three hundred of his fighting men, Abraham followed the attackers. At nighttime he divided his men and attacked the enemy from all sides. Abraham’s men won a great victory and they brought back all the people and possessions that had been taken. [Reflection based on the Bible Reference – Genesis 14:1-16]
