Five kings fought four kings and one of the groups also defeated the Rephaites and some others. Genesis 14. Abraham sweeps in with a few local allies (friends of his) and his 300+ trained men on horseback and route the whole group, recovering everything. Plus God appears in a dream threatens to kill Abimelech if he didn’t immediately capitulate.
I’d consider it likely that God was on Abraham’s side. If I was one King, I don’t think I’d start putting pressure on Abraham for anything. Rather “Please be nice to me!” better fits the context in my understanding.
Gotta leave for work…
