Chapter 18

And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
men Gen 18:22, Gen 19:1
ran Heb 13:2, 1st Pet 4:9

And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:
wash Gen 24:32, Gen 43:24, Luke 7:38, John 13:5

And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

lord 1st Peter 3:6

too hard Job 42:2, Jer 32:17, Matt 19:26, Luke 1:37, Rom 4:21, Heb 11:19

And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
nations Gen 12:2, Gen 17:6, Gen 46:3, Deut 26:5, 1st Kings 3:8
blessed Gen 12:3, Gen 22:18

household Gen 17:27

And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
sin Gen 13:13, Eze 16:49, 2nd Pet 2:6

I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
down Gen 11:5, Psa 53:2

men Gen 18:2, Gen 19:1
stood Gen 19:27

And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
Wilt Num 16:22, 2nd Sam 24:17, Psa 11:5

Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
Shall Job 8:3, Job 8:20, Psa 58:11, Psa 94:2, Rom 3:6

Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.
yet again 1st Thess 5:17

And he said unto him, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

And he said, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.
angry Judges 6:39
