18:1 And the LORD [H3068] appeared [H7200] unto him in the plains [H436] of Mamre [H4471] : and he sat [H3427] in the tent [H168] door [H6607] in the heat [H2527] of the day [H3117] ;

18:2 And he lift up [H5375] his eyes [H5869] and looked [H7200] , and, lo, three [H7969] men [H582] stood [H5324] by him: and when he saw [H7200] [them], he ran [H7323] to meet [H7125] them from the tent [H168] door [H6607] , and bowed [H7812] himself toward the ground [H776] ,

18:3 And said [H559] , My Lord [H136] , if now I have found [H4672] favour [H2580] in thy sight [H5869] , pass not away [H5674] , I pray thee, from thy servant [H5650] :

18:4 Let a little [H4592] water [H4325] , I pray you [H4994] , be fetched [H3947] , and wash [H7364] your feet [H7272] , and rest yourselves [H8172] under the tree [H6086] :

18:5 And I will fetch [H3947] a morsel [H6595] of bread [H3899] , and comfort ye [H5582] your hearts [H3820] ; after that [H310] ye shall pass on [H5674] : for therefore are ye come [H5674] to [H5921] your servant [H5650] . And they said [H1696] , So do [H6213] , as thou hast said [H559] .(comfort: Heb. stay)(are: Heb. you have passed)

18:6 And Abraham [H85] hastened [H4116] into the tent [H168] unto Sarah [H8283] , and said [H559] , Make ready quickly [H4116] three [H7969] measures [H5429] of fine [H5560] meal [H7058] , knead [H3888] [it], and make [H6213] cakes [H5692] upon the hearth [H6213] .(Make ready: Heb. Hasten)

18:7 And Abraham [H85] ran [H7323] unto the herd [H1241] , and fetcht [H3947] a calf [H1121] [H1241] tender [H7390] and good [H2896] , and gave [H5414] [it] unto a young man [H5288] ; and he hasted [H4116] to dress [H6213] it.

18:8 And he took [H3947] butter [H2529] , and milk [H2461] , and the calf [H1121] [H1241] which he had dressed [H6213] , and set [H5414] [it] before them [H6440] ; and he stood [H5975] by them under the tree [H6086] , and they did eat [H398] .

18:9 And they said [H559] unto him, Where [H346] [is] Sarah [H8283] thy wife [H802] ? And he said [H559] , Behold, in the tent [H168] .

18:10 And he said [H559] , I will certainly [H7725] return [H7725] unto thee according to the time [H6256] of life [H2416] ; and, lo, Sarah [H8283] thy wife [H802] shall have a son [H1121] . And Sarah [H8283] heard [H8085] [it] in the tent [H168] door [H6607] , which [was] behind him [H310] .

18:11 Now Abraham [H85] and Sarah [H8283] [were] old [H2205] [and] well stricken [H935] in age [H3117] ; [and] it ceased [H2308] to be with Sarah [H8283] after the manner [H734] of women [H802] .

18:12 Therefore Sarah [H8283] laughed [H6711] within herself [H7130] , saying [H559] , After [H310] I am waxed old [H1086] shall I have pleasure [H5730] , my lord [H113] being old also [H2204] ?

18:13 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto Abraham [H85] , Wherefore [H4100] did Sarah [H8283] laugh [H6711] , saying [H559] , Shall I of a surety [H552] bear [H3205] a child, which [H589] am old [H2204] ?

18:14 Is [H6381] any thing [H1697] too hard [H6381] for the LORD [H3068] ? At the time appointed [H4150] I will return [H7725] unto thee, according to the time [H6256] of life [H2416] , and Sarah [H8283] shall have a son [H1121] .

18:15 Then Sarah [H8283] denied [H3584] , saying [H559] , I laughed [H6711] not; for she was afraid [H3372] . And he said [H559] , Nay [H3808] ; but thou didst laugh [H6711] .

18:16 And the men [H582] rose up [H6965] from thence, and looked [H8259] toward [H6440] Sodom [H5467] : and Abraham [H85] went [H1980] with them to bring them on the way [H7971] .

18:17 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] , Shall I hide [H3680] from Abraham [H85] that thing which [H834] I do [H6213] ;

18:18 Seeing that Abraham [H85] shall surely become a great [H1419] and mighty [H6099] nation [H1471] , and all the nations [H1471] of the earth [H776] shall be blessed [H1288] in him?

18:19 For I know [H3045] him, that [H834] he will command [H6680] his children [H1121] and his household [H1004] after him [H310] , and they shall keep [H8104] the way [H1870] of the LORD [H3068] , to do [H6213] justice [H6666] and judgment [H4941] ; that the LORD [H3068] may bring [H935] upon Abraham [H85] that which he hath spoken [H1696] of him.

18:20 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] , Because the cry [H2201] of Sodom [H5467] and Gomorrah [H6017] is great [H7227] , and because their sin [H2403] is very [H3966] grievous [H3513] ;

18:21 I will go down [H3381] now, and see [H7200] whether they have done [H6213] altogether [H3617] according to the cry [H6818] of it, which is come [H935] unto me; and if not, I will know [H3045] .

18:22 And the men [H582] turned their faces [H6437] from thence, and went [H3212] toward Sodom [H5467] : but Abraham [H85] stood [H5975] yet [H5750] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] .

18:23 And Abraham [H85] drew near [H5066] , and said [H559] , Wilt thou also destroy [H5595] the righteous [H6662] with [H5973] the wicked [H7563] ?

18:24 Peradventure there be [H3426] fifty [H2572] righteous [H6662] within [H8432] the city [H5892] : wilt thou also destroy [H5595] and not spare [H5375] the place [H4725] for [H4616] the fifty [H2572] righteous [H6662] that [are] therein [H7130] ?

18:25 That be far [H2486] from thee to do [H6213] after this manner [H1697] , to slay [H4191] the righteous [H6662] with the wicked [H7563] : and that the righteous [H6662] should be as the wicked [H7563] , that be far [H2486] from thee: Shall not the Judge [H8199] of all the earth [H776] do [H6213] right [H4941] ?

18:26 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] , If I find [H4672] in Sodom [H5467] fifty [H2572] righteous [H6662] within [H8432] the city [H5892] , then I will spare [H5375] all the place [H4725] for their sakes.

18:27 And Abraham [H85] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , Behold now, I have taken upon me [H2974] to speak [H1696] unto the Lord [H136] , which [H595] [am but] dust [H6083] and ashes [H665] :

18:28 Peradventure there shall lack [H2637] five [H2568] of the fifty [H2572] righteous [H6662] : wilt thou destroy [H7843] all the city [H5892] for [lack of] five [H2568] ? And he said [H559] , If I find [H4672] there forty [H705] and five [H2568] , I will not destroy [H7843] [it].

18:29 And he spake [H1696] unto him yet again [H3254] , and said [H559] , Peradventure there shall be forty [H705] found [H4672] there. And he said [H559] , I will not do [H6213] [it] for forty's [H705] sake.

18:30 And he said [H559] [unto him], Oh [H4994] let not the Lord [H136] be angry [H2734] , and I will speak [H1696] : Peradventure there shall thirty [H7970] be found [H4672] there. And he said [H559] , I will not do [H6213] [it], if I find [H4672] thirty [H7970] there.

18:31 And he said [H559] , Behold now, I have taken upon me [H2974] to speak [H1696] unto the Lord [H136] : Peradventure there shall be twenty [H6242] found [H4672] there. And he said [H559] , I will not destroy [H7843] [it] for twenty's [H6242] sake.

18:32 And he said [H559] , Oh let not the Lord [H136] be angry [H2734] , and I will speak [H1696] yet [H389] but this once [H6471] : Peradventure ten [H6235] shall be found [H4672] there. And he said [H559] , I will not destroy [H7843] [it] for ten's [H6235] sake.

18:33 And the LORD [H3068] went his way [H3212] , as soon as [H834] he had left [H3615] communing [H1696] with Abraham [H85] : and Abraham [H85] returned [H7725] unto his place [H4725] .
