This man derives from the tribe of Japeth, and idolatry began with him: for he decreed that the best men of long ago be honored with images and statues and be reverenced as benefactors. And this man ruled until the times of Terah the father of Abraham. But Abraham was a righteous man and had come into the knowledge of God, and he had deemed that his father was deceiving men, by accustoming them to make obeisance to idols and statues and not to know God as the maker of all things. When he had crushed the works of his father, he retired from the Chaldean mountains of Karra of the region in the middle of the rivers, and he dwelt in the parts of that which is now called Palestine beyond the Jordan River, he and his kinsmen and Lot[1] the son of his brother, in the 75th year of his life. And so there were 1403 years from the flood until Abraham, and there were 3745 years from Adam until Abraham. And Abraham became quite wealthy in his many possessions, and their settlement did not have room for them: and he granted to Lot to inhabit the regions beyond the Jordan: indeed during this time two cities were destroyed, Sodom and Gomorra,[2] when a divine fire fell down upon them, because they were insulting the strangers who were there.
Greek Original:
Σερούχ: οὗτος κατάγεται ἐκ τῆς φυλῆς τοῦ Ἰαφέθ, καὶ ἀπὸ τούτου ἤρξατο ἡ εἰδωλολατρία: ἐδογμάτισε γὰρ εἰκόσι καὶ ἀνδριάσι τιμᾶσθαι τοὺς πάλαι ἀριστεύσαντας καὶ τιμᾶσθαι ὡς εὐεργέτας. καὶ τοῦτο ἐπεκράτησε μέχρι τῶν χρόνων Θάρρα τοῦ πατρὸς Ἀβραάμ. Ἀβραὰμ δὲ δίκαιος γενόμενος καὶ ἐς θεογνωσίαν ἐλθὼν καὶ λογισάμενος, ὅτι ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ τοὺς ἀνθρώπους πλανᾷ, παρασκευάζων αὐτοὺς εἰδώλοις καὶ ἀγάλμασι προσκυνεῖν καὶ ποιητὴν ἁπάντων μὴ γνωρίζειν θεόν, συντρίψας τὰ τοῦ πατρὸς ἔργα ἀνεχώρησεν ἀπὸ Καρρῶν ὅρων Χαλδαίων τῆς μέσης τῶν ποταμῶν χώρας καὶ ᾤκησεν ἐς τὰ μέρη τῆς νυνὶ καλουμένης Παλαιστίνης πέραν τοῦ Ἰορδάνου ποταμοῦ, αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ αὐτοῦ συγγενεῖς καὶ Λὼτ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ, ε# καὶ ο# ἔτει τῆς ἑαυτοῦ ζωῆς. εἰσὶν οὖν ἀπὸ τοῦ κατακλυσμοῦ ἕως Ἀβραὰμ ἔτη #22αυγ#, ἀπὸ δὲ τοῦ Ἀδὰμ ἕως τοῦ Ἀβραὰμ ἔτη #22γψμε#. ἐγένετο δὲ Ἀβραὰμ πλούσιος σφόδρα ἐν κτήνεσι πολλοῖς, καὶ οὐκ ἐχώρει αὐτοὺς ἡ συνοικία αὐτῶν: καὶ ἔδωκε Λὼτ οἰκεῖν τὰ πέραν τοῦ Ἰορδάνου: καθ' ὃν δὴ χρόνον ἀπώλοντο δύο πόλεις, Σόδομά τε καὶ Γόμορρα, θείου πυρὸς καταρραγέντος ἐπ' αὐτάς, διότι τοὺς παριόντας ἐνύβριζον ξένους.
