The Chedorlaomer Rebellion

Genesis 14:1-12
And it came to pass in the days of 
That these made war with 
All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.

Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the 
which is by the wilderness. And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.

And there went out 
  • the king of Sodom, and 
  • the king of Gomorrah, and 
  • the king of Admah, and 
  • the king of Zeboiim, and 
  • the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) 
and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim; 
  • With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and 
  • with Tidal king of nations, and 
  • Amraphel king of Shinar, and 
  • Arioch king of Ellasar; 
four kings with five. And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.

And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way. And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

Did you notice that?  Lot lived near Sodom and Gomorrah for 12 years without any problems!
