And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel,
unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between
Bethel and Hai;
Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the
first: and there Abram called on the name of the Lord.

together: for their substance was great, so that they could
not dwell together.
And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abrams
cattle and the herdmen of Lots cattle: and the Canaanite
and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee,
between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen;
for we be brethren.

thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will
go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then
I will go to the left.

and to thy seed for ever.
And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that
if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy
seed also be numbered.
Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the
breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.

in the vale of Siddim;
With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of
nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar;
four kings with five.

Genesis 18: 1133
Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age;
and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am
waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh,
saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed
I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and
Sarah shall have a son.
Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid.
And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord,
to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham
that which he hath spoken of him.
And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah
is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether
according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if
not, I will know.
And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward
Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord.
And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the
righteous with the wicked?
Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt
thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous
that are therein?
That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the
righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be
as the wicked, that be far from thee: shall not the Judge
of all the earth do right?
And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within
the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon
me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:
Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous:
wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said,
If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.
And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there
shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it
for fortys sake.
And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I
will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there.
And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.
And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto
the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there.
And he said, I will not destroy it for twentys sake.
And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak
yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there.
And he said, I will not destroy it for tens sake.
And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left communing
with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.
Genesis 13: 138
And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in
the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them;
and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into
your servants house, and tarry all night, and wash your
feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And
they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto
him and entered into his house; and he made them a feast,
and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men
of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all
the people from every quarter:
And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the
men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto
us, that we may know them.
And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door
And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man;
let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to
them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing;
for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one
fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now
will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed
sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the
house to them, and shut to the door.
And they smote the men that were at the door of the house
with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied
themselves to find the door.
And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son
in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou
hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is
waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath
sent us to destroy it.
And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married
his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for
the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that
mocked unto his sons in law.
And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot,
saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which
are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and
upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters;
the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth,
and set him without the city.
And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad,
that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither
stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou
And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and
thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto
me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain,
lest some evil take me, and I die:
Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little
one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?)
and my soul shall live.
And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning
this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for
the which thou hast spoken.
Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till
thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called
The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone
and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all
the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became
a pillar of salt.
And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where
he stood before the Lord:
And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the
land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country
went up as the smoke of a furnace.
And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the
plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent lot out of the
midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the
which Lot dwelt.
And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and
his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar:
and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old,
and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after
the manner of all the earth:
Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie
with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
And they made their father drink wine that night: and the
firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived
not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said
unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father:
let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in,
and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
And they made their father drink wine that night also: and
the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not
when she lay down, nor when she arose.
Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the
same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name
Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto
Isaiah 1: 131
The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning
Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and
Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath
spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they
have rebelled against me.
The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his masters crib:
but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of
evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken
the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger,
they are gone away backward.
Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and
more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no
soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores:
they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified
Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire:
your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is
desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard,
as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,
we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like
Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto
the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto
me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams,
and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood
of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this
at your hand, to tread my courts?
Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto
me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies,
I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth:
they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes
from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear:
your hands are full of blood.
Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings
from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge
the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though
they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the
But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the
sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of
judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every
one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge
not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come
Therefore saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the mighty One
of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge
me of mine enemies:
And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away
thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellers
as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city
of righteousness, the faithful city.
Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with
And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners
shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be
For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired,
and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.
For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden
that hath no water.
And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a
spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench
Isaiah 13: 122
The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.
Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice
unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates
of the nobles.
I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my
mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great
people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered
together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.
They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even
the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the
Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come
as a destruction from the Almighty.
Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every mans
heart shall melt:
And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold
of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth:
they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be
Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath
and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy
the sinners thereof out of it.
For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall
not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going
forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked
for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the
proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man
than the golden wedge of Ophir.
Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove
out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in
the day of his fierce anger.
And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no
man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people,
and flee every one into his own land.
Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every
one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their
eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall
not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight
Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they
shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall
not spare children.
And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees
excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in
from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch
tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their
houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall
dwell there, and Satyrs shall dance there.
And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate
houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time
is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
Jeremiah 23: 1415
I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible
thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen
also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his
wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the
inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets;
Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink
the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness
gone forth into all the land.
Genesis 49: 1333
For I have sworn by myself, saith the Lord, that Bozrah shall
become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and
all the cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes.
I have heard a rumour from the Lord, and an ambassador is
sent unto the heathen, saying, Gather ye together, and come
against her, and rise up to the battle.
For, lo, I will make thee small among the heathen, and despised
Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine
heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that
holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make
thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from
thence, saith the Lord.
Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goeth by
it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues
As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour
cities thereof, saith the Lord, no man shall abide there,
neither shall a son of man dwell in it.
Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of
Jordan against the habitation of the strong: but I will suddenly
make him run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that
I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint
me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before
Therefore hear the counsel of the Lord, that he hath taken
against Edom; and his purposes, that he hath purposed against
the inhabitants of Teman: surely the least of the flock shall
draw them out: surely he shall make their habitations desolate
The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry
the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.
Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread
his wings over Bozrah: and at that day shall the heart of
the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.
Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for
they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there
is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and
fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her,
as a woman in travail.
How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!
Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all
the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord
And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it
shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.
Concerning Kedar, and concerning the kingdoms of Hazor, which
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon shall smite, thus saith the
Lord; Arise ye, go up to Kedar, and spoil the men of the east.
Their tents and their flocks shall they take away: they shall
take to themselves their curtains, and all their vessels,
and their camels; and they shall cry unto them, fear is on
Flee, get you far off, dwell deep, O ye inhabitants of Hazor,
saith the Lord; for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath taken
counsel against you, and hath conceived a purpose against
Arise, get you up unto the wealthy nation, that dwelleth
without care, saith the Lord, which have neither gates nor
bars, which dwell alone.
And their camels shall be a booty, and the multitude of their
cattle a spoil: and I will scatter into all winds them that
are in the utmost corners; and I will bring their calamity
from all sides thereof, saith the Lord.
And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons, and a desolation
for ever: there shall no man abide there, nor any son of man
dwell in it.
Zephaniah 2: 9
Therefore as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of
Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of
Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits,
and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall
spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.
Matthew 10: 1115,
And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire
who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
And when ye come into an house, salute it.
And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it:
but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words,
when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust
of your feet.
Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the
land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for
Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty
works were done, because they repented not:
Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if
the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in
Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth
But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and
Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt
be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have
been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained
until this day.
But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the
land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
Second Epistle of St
Peter 2: 117
But there were false prophets also among the people, even
as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought
them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of
whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make
merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth
not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them
down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness,
to be reserved unto judgment;
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person,
a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the
world of the ungodly;
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned
them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those
that after should live ungodly;
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation
of the wicked:
(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and
hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations,
and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of
uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they,
selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring
not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and
destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not;
and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they
that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they
are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings
while they feast with you;
Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from
sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised
with covetous practices; cursed children:
Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following
the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of
But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with
mans voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with
a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
Jude 1: 78
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in
like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going
after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering
the vengeance of eternal fire.
Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise
dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
