1 H3068 And the LORD H7200 appeared [H8735] H436 unto him in the plains H4471 of Mamre H3427 : and he sat [H8802] H168 in the tent H6607 door H2527 in the heat H3117 of the day;
2 H5375 And he lift up [H8799] H5869 his eyes H7200 and looked [H8799] H7969 , and, lo, three H582 men H5324 stood [H8737] H7200 by him: and when he saw [H8799] H7323 them, he ran [H8799] H7125 to meet [H8800] H168 them from the tent H6607 door H7812 , and bowed [H8691] H776 himself toward the ground,
3 H559 And said [H8799] H136 , My Lord H4672 , if now I have found [H8804] H2580 favour H5869 in thy sight H5674 , pass not away [H8799] H5650 , I pray thee, from thy servant:
4 H4592 Let a little H4325 water H4994 , I pray you H3947 , be fetched [H8714] H7364 , and wash [H8798] H7272 your feet H8172 , and rest yourselves [H8734] H6086 under the tree:
5 H3947 And I will fetch [H8799] H6595 a morsel H3899 of bread H5582 , and comfort ye [H8798] H3820 your hearts H310 ; after that H5674 ye shall pass on [H8799] H5674 : for therefore are ye come [H8804] H5921 to H5650 your servant H1696 . And they said [H8765] H6213 , So do [H8799] H559 , as thou hast said [H8799] .
6 H85 And Abraham H4116 hastened [H8762] H168 into the tent H8283 unto Sarah H559 , and said [H8799] H4116 , Make ready quickly [H8761] H7969 three H5429 measures H5560 of fine H7058 meal H3888 , knead [H8798] H6213 it, and make H5692 cakes H6213 upon the hearth [H8798] .
7 H85 And Abraham H7323 ran [H8804] H1241 unto the herd H3947 , and fetcht [H8799] H1121 a calf H1241 H7390 tender H2896 and good H5414 , and gave [H8799] H5288 it unto a young man H4116 ; and he hasted [H8762] H6213 to dress [H8800] it.
8 H3947 And he took [H8799] H2529 butter H2461 , and milk H1121 , and the calf H1241 H6213 which he had dressed [H8804] H5414 , and set [H8799] H6440 it before them H5975 ; and he stood [H8802] H6086 by them under the tree H398 , and they did eat [H8799] .
9 H559 And they said [H8799] H346 unto him, Where H8283 is Sarah H802 thy wife H559 ? And he said [H8799] H168 , Behold, in the tent.
10 H559 And he said [H8799] H7725 , I will certainly [H8800] H7725 return [H8799] H6256 unto thee according to the time H2416 of life H8283 ; and, lo, Sarah H802 thy wife H1121 shall have a son H8283 . And Sarah H8085 heard [H8802] H168 it in the tent H6607 door H310 , which was behind him.
11 H85 Now Abraham H8283 and Sarah H2205 were old H935 and well stricken [H8802] H3117 in age H2308 ; and it ceased [H8804] H8283 to be with Sarah H734 after the manner H802 of women.
12 H8283 Therefore Sarah H6711 laughed [H8799] H7130 within herself H559 , saying [H8800] H310 , After H1086 I am waxed old [H8800] H5730 shall I have pleasure H113 , my lord H2204 being old also [H8804] ?
13 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H85 unto Abraham H4100 , Wherefore H8283 did Sarah H6711 laugh [H8804] H559 , saying [H8800] H552 , Shall I of a surety H3205 bear [H8799] H589 a child, which H2204 am old [H8804] ?
14 H6381 Is H1697 any thing H6381 too hard [H8735] H3068 for the LORD H4150 ? At the time appointed H7725 I will return [H8799] H6256 unto thee, according to the time H2416 of life H8283 , and Sarah H1121 shall have a son.
15 H8283 Then Sarah H3584 denied [H8762] H559 , saying [H8800] H6711 , I laughed [H8804] H3372 not; for she was afraid [H8804] H559 . And he said [H8799] H3808 , Nay H6711 ; but thou didst laugh [H8804] .
16 H582 And the men H6965 rose up [H8799] H8259 from thence, and looked [H8686] H6440 toward H5467 Sodom H85 : and Abraham H1980 went [H8802] H7971 with them to bring them on the way [H8763] .
17 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8804] H3680 , Shall I hide [H8764] H85 from Abraham H834 that thing which H6213 I do [H8802] ;
18 H85 Seeing that Abraham H1419 shall surely become a great H6099 and mighty H1471 nation H1471 , and all the nations H776 of the earth H1288 shall be blessed [H8738] in him?
19 H3045 For I know [H8804] H834 him, that H6680 he will command [H8762] H1121 his children H1004 and his household H310 after him H8104 , and they shall keep [H8804] H1870 the way H3068 of the LORD H6213 , to do [H8800] H6666 justice H4941 and judgment H3068 ; that the LORD H935 may bring [H8687] H85 upon Abraham H1696 that which he hath spoken [H8765] of him.
20 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H2201 , Because the cry H5467 of Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H7227 is great H2403 , and because their sin H3966 is very H3513 grievous [H8804] ;
21 H3381 I will go down [H8799] H7200 now, and see [H8799] H6213 whether they have done [H8804] H3617 altogether H6818 according to the cry H935 of it, which is come [H8802] H3045 unto me; and if not, I will know [H8799] .
22 H582 And the men H6437 turned their faces [H8799] H3212 from thence, and went [H8799] H5467 toward Sodom H85 : but Abraham H5975 stood [H8802] H5750 yet H6440 before H3068 the LORD.
23 H85 And Abraham H5066 drew near [H8799] H559 , and said [H8799] H5595 , Wilt thou also destroy [H8799] H6662 the righteous H5973 with H7563 the wicked?
24 H3426 Peradventure there be H2572 fifty H6662 righteous H8432 within H5892 the city H5595 : wilt thou also destroy [H8799] H5375 and not spare [H8799] H4725 the place H4616 for H2572 the fifty H6662 righteous H7130 that are therein?
25 H2486 That be far H6213 from thee to do [H8800] H1697 after this manner H4191 , to slay [H8687] H6662 the righteous H7563 with the wicked H6662 : and that the righteous H7563 should be as the wicked H2486 , that be far H8199 from thee: Shall not the Judge [H8802] H776 of all the earth H6213 do [H8799] H4941 right?
26 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H4672 , If I find [H8799] H5467 in Sodom H2572 fifty H6662 righteous H8432 within H5892 the city H5375 , then I will spare [H8804] H4725 all the place for their sakes.
27 H85 And Abraham H6030 answered [H8799] H559 and said [H8799] H2974 , Behold now, I have taken upon me [H8689] H1696 to speak [H8763] H136 unto the Lord H595 , which H6083 am but dust H665 and ashes:
28 H2637 Peradventure there shall lack [H8799] H2568 five H2572 of the fifty H6662 righteous H7843 : wilt thou destroy [H8686] H5892 all the city H2568 for lack of five H559 ? And he said [H8799] H4672 , If I find [H8799] H705 there forty H2568 and five H7843 , I will not destroy [H8686] it .
29 H1696 And he spake [H8763] H3254 unto him yet again [H8686] H559 , and said [H8799] H705 , Peradventure there shall be forty H4672 found [H8735] H559 there. And he said [H8799] H6213 , I will not do [H8799] H705 it for forty's sake.
30 H559 And he said [H8799] H4994 unto him, Oh H136 let not the Lord H2734 be angry [H8799] H1696 , and I will speak [H8762] H7970 : Peradventure there shall thirty H4672 be found [H8735] H559 there. And he said [H8799] H6213 , I will not do [H8799] H4672 it, if I find [H8799] H7970 thirty there.
31 H559 And he said [H8799] H2974 , Behold now, I have taken upon me [H8689] H1696 to speak [H8763] H136 unto the Lord H6242 : Peradventure there shall be twenty H4672 found [H8735] H559 there. And he said [H8799] H7843 , I will not destroy [H8686] H6242 it for twenty's sake.
32 H559 And he said [H8799] H136 , Oh let not the Lord H2734 be angry [H8799] H1696 , and I will speak [H8762] H389 yet H6471 but this once H6235 : Peradventure ten H4672 shall be found [H8735] H559 there. And he said [H8799] H7843 , I will not destroy [H8686] H6235 it for ten's sake.
