I will accept nothing from you except what the young men have eaten, and the share of the spoil of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre. Let them take their share.” Bible

“share of the spoil.” It is an ancient custom that if men risk their life and go into battle that they get a share in the spoils of war. This included the arms and armor of anyone they personally killed. Abram recognized that the men who fought with him risked much, and wanted to make sure they got their reward for their bravery.
