18:1
apparuit autem ei Dominus in convalle Mambre sedenti inostio tabernaculi sui in ipso fervore diei

18:2
cumque elevasset oculos apparuerunt ei tres viri stantespropter eum quos cum vidisset cucurrit in occursum eorum deostio tabernaculi et adoravit in terra

18:3
et dixit Domine si inveni gratiam in oculis tuis netranseas servum tuum

18:4
sed adferam pauxillum aquae et lavate pedes vestros etrequiescite sub arbore

18:5
ponam buccellam panis et confortate cor vestrum posteatransibitis idcirco enim declinastis ad servum vestrum quidixerunt fac ut locutus es

18:6
festinavit Abraham in tabernaculum ad Sarram dixitque eiadcelera tria sata similae commisce et fac subcinericios panes

18:7
ipse vero ad armentum cucurrit et tulit inde vitulumtenerrimum et optimum deditque puero qui festinavit et coxitillum

18:8
tulit quoque butyrum et lac et vitulum quem coxerat etposuit coram eis ipse vero stabat iuxta eos sub arbore

18:9
cumque comedissent dixerunt ad eum ubi est Sarra uxor tuaille respondit ecce in tabernaculo est

18:10
cui dixit revertens veniam ad te tempore isto vita comiteet habebit filium Sarra uxor tua quo audito Sarra risit postostium tabernaculi

18:11
erant autem ambo senes provectaeque aetatis et desierantSarrae fieri muliebria

18:12
quae risit occulte dicens postquam consenui et dominusmeus vetulus est voluptati operam dabo

18:13
dixit autem Dominus ad Abraham quare risit Sarra dicensnum vere paritura sum anus

18:14
numquid Deo est quicquam difficile iuxta condictumrevertar ad te hoc eodem tempore vita comite et habebit Sarrafilium

18:15
negavit Sarra dicens non risi timore perterrita Dominusautem non est inquit ita sed risisti

18:16
cum ergo surrexissent inde viri direxerunt oculos suoscontra Sodomam et Abraham simul gradiebatur deducens eos

18:17
dixitque Dominus num celare potero Abraham quae gesturussum

18:18
cum futurus sit in gentem magnam ac robustissimam etbenedicendae sint in illo omnes nationes terrae

18:19
scio enim quod praecepturus sit filiis suis et domui suaepost se ut custodiant viam Domini et faciant iustitiam etiudicium ut adducat Dominus propter Abraham omnia quae locutusest ad eum

18:20
dixit itaque Dominus clamor Sodomorum et Gomorraemultiplicatus est et peccatum earum adgravatum est nimis

18:21
descendam et videbo utrum clamorem qui venit ad me opereconpleverint an non est ita ut sciam

18:22
converteruntque se inde et abierunt Sodomam Abraham veroadhuc stabat coram Domino

18:23
et adpropinquans ait numquid perdes iustum cum impio

18:24
si fuerint quinquaginta iusti in civitate peribunt simulet non parces loco illi propter quinquaginta iustos si fuerintin eo

18:25
absit a te ut rem hanc facias et occidas iustum cum impiofiatque iustus sicut impius non est hoc tuum qui iudicas omnemterram nequaquam facies iudicium

18:26
dixitque Dominus ad eum si invenero Sodomis quinquagintaiustos in medio civitatis dimittam omni loco propter eos

18:27
respondens Abraham ait quia semel coepi loquar ad Dominummeum cum sim pulvis et cinis

18:28
quid si minus quinquaginta iustis quinque fuerint delebispropter quinque universam urbem et ait non delebo si inveneroibi quadraginta quinque

18:29
rursumque locutus est ad eum sin autem quadraginta inventifuerint quid facies ait non percutiam propter quadraginta

18:30
ne quaeso inquit indigneris Domine si loquar quid siinventi fuerint ibi triginta respondit non faciam si inveneroibi triginta

18:31
quia semel ait coepi loquar ad Dominum meum quid siinventi fuerint ibi viginti dixit non interficiam propterviginti

18:32
obsecro inquit ne irascaris Domine si loquar adhuc semelquid si inventi fuerint ibi decem dixit non delebo propterdecem

18:33
abiit Dominus postquam cessavit loqui ad Abraham et illereversus est in locum suum

018:001
And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

018:002
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,

018:003
And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

018:004
Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

018:005
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.

018:006
And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.

018:007
And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

018:008
And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

018:009
And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

018:010
And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

018:011
Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

018:012
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

018:013
And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

018:014
Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

018:015
Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

018:016
And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

018:017
And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

018:018
Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

018:019
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

018:020
And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

018:021
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.

018:022
And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

018:023
And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

018:024
Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

018:025
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?

018:026
And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

018:027
And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes:

018:028
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.

018:029
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.

018:030
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.

018:031
And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

018:032
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.

018:033
And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.
