Genesis 14:17

And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the King's Valley.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Do you see here in every event the just man being conspicuous and demonstrating to everyone on every occasion God’s providence in his regard? Now you see him also zealous to prove a teacher of reverence for God to the Sodomites. “The king of Sodom,” Scripture says, remember, “came out to meet him on his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings with him.” Notice the extent of his virtue and his enjoyment of assistance from God. The king comes out to meet this stranger, advanced in years, and shows high regard for him. He had learned, you see, that the advantage of kingship is as nothing to the person who lacks assistance from on high and that nothing could be more efficacious than God’s hand raised to assist.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
