Genesis 14:10

Ἡ δὲ κοιλὰς ἡ ἁλυκὴ φρέατα φρέατα ἀσφάλτου. ἔφυγεν δὲ βασιλεὺς Σοδομων καὶ βασιλεὺς Γομοῤῥας, καὶ ἐνέπεσαν ἐκεῖ· οἱ δὲ καταλειφθέντες εἰς τὴν ὀρεινὴν ἔφυγον.

Now the salt valley was pits, pits of asphalt. Then the king of Sodom and the king of Gomorrha fled, and they fell in there, but those who were left fled to the hill country.

ועמק השׂדים בארת בארת חמר וינסו מלך־סדם ועמרה ויפלו־שׁמה והנשׁארים הרה נסו׃


* some MSS Omit φρέατα
* asphalt OR bitumen
