What prompted Avraham to move his tent?

1.

Rashi #1: Since the four major towns no longer existed, no more travelers passed his tent. 1

2.

Rashi #2: To distance himself from Lot, about whom rumors were spreading that he had relations with his daughters. 2


1

The Seforno adds that Avraham set up tent between two big towns, in order to attract travelers from both towns, in order to spread the service of Hashem.

2

Riva, Moshav Zekenim (Bereishis 19:37), Ramban: Even though a Nochri is permitted to his daughter, the nations had separated themselves from Ervah. This is why Horiyos 6b says that Lot's action was an Aveirah.

2)

רש"י: דבר אחר להתרחק מלוט וכו': מה היה קשה בפירוש הראשון שבעטיו הוסיף רש"י 'דבר אחר'?

1.

גור אריה: לפרוש הראשון היה צריך לכתוב זאת לעיל (פרק יט פסוק כט) [לפני מעשה בנות לוט].
