1 H3068 And the LORD H7200 [H8735] appeared H436 to him in the plains H4471 of Mamre H3427 [H8802] : and he sat H168 in the tent H6607 door H2527 in the heat H3117 of the day;
2 H5375 [H8799] And he lifted up H5869 his eyes H7200 [H8799] and looked H7969 , and, lo, three H582 men H5324 [H8737] stood H7200 [H8799] by him: and when he saw H7323 [H8799] them, he ran H7125 [H8800] to meet H168 them from the tent H6607 door H7812 [H8691] , and bowed H776 himself toward the ground,
3 H559 [H8799] And said H136 , My Lord H4672 [H8804] , if now I have found H2580 favour H5869 in thy sight H5674 [H8799] , pass not away H5650 , I pray thee, from thy servant:
4 H4592 Let a little H4325 water H4994 , I pray you H3947 [H8714] , be brought H7364 [H8798] , and wash H7272 your feet H8172 [H8734] , and rest yourselves H6086 under the tree:
5 H3947 [H8799] And I will bring H6595 a morsel H3899 of bread H5582 [H8798] , and comfort ye H3820 your hearts H310 ; after that H5674 [H8799] you shall pass on H5674 [H8804] : for therefore are ye come H5921 to H5650 your servant H1696 [H8765] . And they said H6213 [H8799] , So do H559 [H8799] , as thou hast said.
6 H85 And Abraham H4116 [H8762] hastened H168 into the tent H8283 to Sarah H559 [H8799] , and said H4116 [H8761] , Make ready quickly H7969 three H5429 measures H5560 of fine H7058 meal H3888 [H8798] , knead H6213 0 it, and make H5692 cakes H6213 [H8798] upon the hearth.
7 H85 And Abraham H7323 [H8804] ran H1241 to the herd H3947 [H8799] , and brought H1121 H1241 a calf H7390 tender H2896 and good H5414 [H8799] , and gave H5288 it to a young man H4116 [H8762] ; and he hasted H6213 [H8800] to dress it.
8 H3947 [H8799] And he took H2529 butter H2461 , and milk H1121 H1241 , and the calf H6213 [H8804] which he had dressed H5414 [H8799] , and set H6440 it before them H5975 [H8802] ; and he stood H6086 by them under the tree H398 [H8799] , and they ate.
9 H559 [H8799] And they said H346 to him, Where H8283 is Sarah H802 thy wife H559 [H8799] ? And he said H168 , Behold, in the tent.
10 H559 [H8799] And he said H7725 [H8800] , I will certainly H7725 [H8799] return H6256 to thee according to the time H2416 of life H8283 ; and, lo, Sarah H802 thy wife H1121 shall have a son H8283 . And Sarah H8085 [H8802] heard H168 it in the tent H6607 door H310 , which was behind him.
11 H85 Now Abraham H8283 and Sarah H2205 were old H935 [H8802] and well advanced H3117 in years H2308 [H8804] ; and it ceased H8283 to be with Sarah H734 after the manner H802 of women.
12 H8283 Therefore Sarah H6711 [H8799] laughed H7130 within herself H559 [H8800] , saying H310 , After H1086 [H8800] I am become old H5730 shall I have pleasure H113 , my lord H2204 [H8804] being old also?
13 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H85 to Abraham H4100 , Why H8283 did Sarah H6711 [H8804] laugh H559 [H8800] , saying H552 , Shall I certainly H3205 [H8799] bear H589 a child, who H2204 [H8804] am old?
14 H6381 0 Is H1697 any thing H6381 [H8735] too hard H3068 for the LORD H4150 ? At the time appointed H7725 [H8799] I will return H6256 to thee, according to the time H2416 of life H8283 , and Sarah H1121 shall have a son.
15 H8283 Then Sarah H3584 [H8762] denied H559 [H8800] , saying H6711 [H8804] , I laughed H3372 [H8804] not; for she was afraid H559 [H8799] . And he said H3808 , Nay H6711 [H8804] ; but thou didst laugh.
16 H582 And the men H6965 [H8799] rose up H8259 [H8686] from there, and looked H6440 toward H5467 Sodom H85 : and Abraham H1980 [H8802] went H7971 [H8763] with them to bring them on the way.
17 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8804] said H3680 [H8764] , Shall I hide H85 from Abraham H834 that thing which H6213 [H8802] I do;
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 [H8738] shall be blessed in him?
19 H3045 [H8804] For I know H834 him, that H6680 [H8762] he will command H1121 his children H1004 and his household H310 after him H8104 [H8804] , and they shall keep H1870 the way H3068 of the LORD H6213 [H8800] , to do H4941 righteousness H6666 and justice H3068 ; that the LORD H935 [H8687] may bring H85 upon Abraham H1696 [H8765] that which he hath spoken of him.
20 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H2201 , Because the cry H5467 of Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H7227 is great H2403 , and because their sin H3966 is very H3513 [H8804] grievous;
21 H3381 [H8799] I will go down H7200 [H8799] now, and see H6213 [H8804] whether they have done H3617 altogether H6818 according to the cry H935 [H8802] of it, which is come H3045 [H8799] to me; and if not, I will know.
22 H582 And the men H6437 [H8799] turned their faces H3212 [H8799] from there, and went H5467 toward Sodom H85 : but Abraham H5975 [H8802] stood H5750 yet H6440 before H3068 the LORD.
23 H85 And Abraham H5066 [H8799] drew near H559 [H8799] , and said H5595 [H8799] , Wilt thou also destroy H6662 the righteous H5973 with H7563 the wicked?
24 H3426 Suppose there are H2572 fifty H6662 righteous H8432 within H5892 the city H5595 [H8799] : wilt thou also destroy H5375 [H8799] and not spare H4725 the place H4616 for H2572 the fifty H6662 righteous H7130 that are in it?
25 H2486 That be far H6213 [H8800] from thee to do H1697 after this manner H4191 [H8687] , to slay H6662 the righteous H7563 with the wicked H6662 : and that the righteous H7563 should be as the wicked H2486 , that be far H8199 [H8802] from thee: Shall not the Judge H776 of all the earth H6213 [H8799] do H4941 right?
26 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H4672 [H8799] , If I find H5467 in Sodom H2572 fifty H6662 righteous H8432 within H5892 the city H5375 [H8804] , then I will spare H4725 all the place for their sakes.
27 H85 And Abraham H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H595 , Behold now, I who H6083 am dust H665 and ashes H2974 [H8689] , have taken upon me H1696 [H8763] to speak H136 to the Lord.
28 H2637 [H8799] Suppose there shall lack H2568 five H2572 of the fifty H6662 righteous H7843 [H8686] : wilt thou destroy H5892 all the city H2568 for lack of five H559 [H8799] ? And he said H4672 [H8799] , If I find H705 there forty H2568 and five H7843 [H8686] , I will not destroy it.
29 H1696 [H8763] And he spoke H3254 [H8686] to him yet again H559 [H8799] , and said H705 , Suppose there shall be forty H4672 [H8735] found H559 [H8799] there. And he said H6213 [H8799] , I will not do H705 it for forty's sake.
30 H559 [H8799] And he said H4994 , O H136 let not the Lord H2734 [H8799] be angry H1696 [H8762] , and I will speak H7970 : Suppose there shall thirty H4672 [H8735] be found H559 [H8799] there. And he said H6213 [H8799] , I will not do H4672 [H8799] it, if I find H7970 thirty there.
31 H559 [H8799] And he said H2974 [H8689] , Behold now, I have taken upon me H1696 [H8763] to speak H136 to the Lord H6242 : Suppose there shall be twenty H4672 [H8735] found H559 [H8799] there. And he said H7843 [H8686] , I will not destroy H6242 it for twenty's sake.
32 H559 [H8799] And he said H136 , O let not the Lord H2734 [H8799] be angry H1696 [H8762] , and I will speak H389 yet H6471 but this once H6235 : Suppose ten H4672 [H8735] shall be found H559 [H8799] there. And he said H7843 [H8686] , I will not destroy H6235 it for ten's sake.
