“And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodome and Gomorrah is great, and because their sinne is very grieuous:”
King James Version (KJV)
17. And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I doe; 18. Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 19. For I know him, that hee will command his children, and his household after him, and they shall keepe the way of the LORD, to doe iustice and iudgement, that the LORD may bring vpon Abraham, that which hee hath spoken of him. 20. And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodome and Gomorrah is great, and because their sinne is very grieuous: 21. I will goe downe now, and see whether they haue done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come vnto me: and if not, I will know. 22. And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodome: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. 23. ¶ And Abraham drew neere, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
