(24) The young men . . . the men which went with me.--The former are Abram's 318 servants, and they are to take only their food. The latter are the Amorites, and they are to have their fair share of the spoil.

We must notice in Abram's policy that, while Lot had joined himself to the Canaanites, he stood aloof, ready to help on fit occasion, but even so maintaining his independence, and refusing to draw the bonds of friendship close together. Such, too, was the true policy of the people sprung from him. Standing apart from all nations, they were to trust in Jehovah alone for the maintenance of their liberty and rights; and so long as they did thus act they found in Him peace and security.

Verse 24. - Save - בִּלְעָדַי, compounded of בַּל, not, and עַד, unto - not unto; a particle of deprecation, meaning, "nothing shall come unto me" (cf. Genesis 41:16) - only that which the young men - נַעַר, a primitive word (cf. Sanscrit, nara, man; nari, nari, woman; Zend., naere; Greek, ἀνήρ), applied to a new-born child (Exodus 2:26; 1 Samuel 4:21), a youth of about twenty (Genesis 34:19; Genesis 41:15), a servant, like παῖς (Genesis 37:2; 2 Kings 5:50), a common soldier (1 Kings 20:15, 17, 19; 2 Kings 19:6) - have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mature; let them take their portion.



14:21-24 Observe the king of Sodom's grateful offer to Abram, Give me the souls, and take thou the substance. Gratitude teaches us to recompense to the utmost of our power, those that have undergone fatigues, run hazards, and been at expense for our service and benefit. Abram generously refused this offer. He accompanies his refusal with a good reason, Lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: which would reflect upon the promise promise and covenant of God, as if He would not have enriched Abraham without the spoils of Sodom. The people of God must, for their credit's sake, take heed of doing any thing that looks mean or mercenary, or that savors of covetousness and self-seeking. Abraham can trust the Possessor of Heaven and earth to provide for him.
