    [B][COLOR=#ff0000]†.[/COLOR] Gen 14:13c . . who was dwelling at the terebinths of Mamre the Amorite, kinsman of Eshkol and Aner, these being Abram's allies.[/B]

    Abram had become a shrewd sheik. The best way to survive on the frontier is to team up-- especially with someone that all the others know and fear.

There was no email, no radio, no sat-com, no land line, no snail mail, no cells, nor television, nor telegraph, nor aircraft, nor motorized conveyances in that day so it would take some time for an overland caravan to return and tell him how the federation of five towns in the Valley refused to cough up their payments. ...
