Verses 5-7

When it became clear that there was not enough pasture to sustain all the flocks of both Abram and Lot, Abram suggested that Lot separate from him. He gave his nephew the choice of where he wanted to settle. This was a magnanimous gesture on Abram’s part. If he was older than Lot, which seems probable, it shows even greater graciousness.

Lot would have been the most likely candidate for the role of Abram’s heir since Sarai was barren. He was a part of Abram’s household and a blood relative (nephew). Abram probably regarded Lot at this time as the heir through whom God would fulfill His promises.
