Bible: Gen 18:17-21

18:17 Then the Lord said, “Should I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? 1  18:18 After all, Abraham 2  will surely become 3  a great and powerful nation, and all the nations on the earth will pronounce blessings on one another 4  using his name. 18:19 I have chosen him 5  so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep 6  the way of the Lord by doing 7  what is right and just. Then the Lord will give 8  to Abraham what he promised 9  him.”

18:20 So the Lord said, “The outcry against 10  Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so blatant 11  18:21 that I must go down 12  and see if they are as wicked as the outcry suggests. 13  If not, 14  I want to know.”
