19:24 Then the Lord rained down 1 sulfur and fire 2 on Sodom and Gomorrah. It was sent down from the sky by the Lord. 3 19:25 So he overthrew those cities and all that region, 4 including all the inhabitants of the cities and the vegetation that grew 5 from the ground. 19:26 But Lot’s 6 wife looked back longingly 7 and was turned into a pillar of salt.
19:27 Abraham got up early in the morning and went 8 to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 19:28 He looked out toward 9 Sodom and Gomorrah and all the land of that region. 10 As he did so, he saw the smoke rising up from the land like smoke from a furnace. 11
19:29 So when God destroyed 12 the cities of the region, 13 God honored 14 Abraham’s request. He removed Lot 15 from the midst of the destruction when he destroyed 16 the cities Lot had lived in.
