Genesis 18:16-33

And the men
<0582>
rose up
<06965> (8799)
from thence, and looked
<08259> (8686)
toward
<06440>
Sodom
<05467>_:
and Abraham
<085>
went
<01980> (8802)
with them to bring them on the way
<07971> (8763)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
Shall I hide
<03680> (8764)
from Abraham
<085>
that thing which
<0834>
I do
<06213> (8802)_;
Seeing that Abraham
<085>
shall surely become a great
<01419>
and mighty
<06099>
nation
<01471>_,
and all the nations
<01471>
of the earth
<0776>
shall be blessed
<01288> (8738)
in him?
For I know
<03045> (8804)
him, that
<0834>
he will command
<06680> (8762)
his children
<01121>
and his household
<01004>
after him
<0310>_,
and they shall keep
<08104> (8804)
the way
<01870>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to do
<06213> (8800)
justice
<06666>
and judgment
<04941>_;
that the LORD
<03068>
may bring
<0935> (8687)
upon Abraham
<085>
that which he hath spoken
<01696> (8765)
of him.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because the cry
<02201>
of Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>
is great
<07227>_,
and because their sin
<02403>
is very
<03966>
grievous
<03513> (8804)_;
I will go down
<03381> (8799)
now, and see
<07200> (8799)
whether they have done
<06213> (8804)
altogether
<03617>
according to the cry
<06818>
of it, which is come
<0935> (8802)
unto me; and if not, I will know
<03045> (8799)_.
And the men
<0582>
turned their faces
<06437> (8799)
from thence, and went
<03212> (8799)
toward Sodom
<05467>_:
but Abraham
<085>
stood
<05975> (8802)
yet
<05750>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And Abraham
<085>
drew near
<05066> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wilt thou also destroy
<05595> (8799)
the righteous
<06662>
with
<05973>
the wicked
<07563>_?
Peradventure there be
<03426>
fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>
within
<08432>
the city
<05892>_:
wilt thou also destroy
<05595> (8799)
and not spare
<05375> (8799)
the place
<04725>
for
<04616>
the fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>
that [are] therein
<07130>_?
That be far
<02486>
from thee to do
<06213> (8800)
after this manner
<01697>_,
to slay
<04191> (8687)
the righteous
<06662>
with the wicked
<07563>_:
and that the righteous
<06662>
should be as the wicked
<07563>_,
that be far
<02486>
from thee: Shall not the Judge
<08199> (8802)
of all the earth
<0776>
do
<06213> (8799)
right
<04941>_?
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
If I find
<04672> (8799)
in Sodom
<05467>
fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>
within
<08432>
the city
<05892>_,
then I will spare
<05375> (8804)
all the place
<04725>
for their sakes.
And Abraham
<085>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold now, I have taken upon me
<02974> (8689)
to speak
<01696> (8763)
unto the Lord
<0136>_,
which
<0595>
[am but] dust
<06083>
and ashes
<0665>_:
Peradventure there shall lack
<02637> (8799)
five
<02568>
of the fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>_:
wilt thou destroy
<07843> (8686)
all the city
<05892>
for [lack of] five
<02568>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
If I find
<04672> (8799)
there forty
<0705>
and five
<02568>_,
I will not destroy
<07843> (8686)
[it].
And he spake
<01696> (8763)
unto him yet again
<03254> (8686)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Peradventure there shall be forty
<0705>
found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not do
<06213> (8799)
[it] for forty's
<0705>
sake.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
[unto him], Oh
<04994>
let not the Lord
<0136>
be angry
<02734> (8799)_,
and I will speak
<01696> (8762)_:
Peradventure there shall thirty
<07970>
be found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not do
<06213> (8799)
[it], if I find
<04672> (8799)
thirty
<07970>
there.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold now, I have taken upon me
<02974> (8689)
to speak
<01696> (8763)
unto the Lord
<0136>_:
Peradventure there shall be twenty
<06242>
found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not destroy
<07843> (8686)
[it] for twenty's
<06242>
sake.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Oh let not the Lord
<0136>
be angry
<02734> (8799)_,
and I will speak
<01696> (8762)
yet
<0389>
but this once
<06471>_:
Peradventure ten
<06235>
shall be found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not destroy
<07843> (8686)
[it] for ten's
<06235>
sake.
And the LORD
<03068>
went his way
<03212> (8799)_,
as soon as
<0834>
he had left
<03615> (8765)
communing
<01696> (8763)
with Abraham
<085>_:
and Abraham
<085>
returned
<07725> (8804)
unto his place
<04725>_.
