1 Yahweh appeared to him at the Oak of Mamre while he was sitting by the entrance of the tent during the hottest part of the day.
Gen 13:18 Gen 14:13 Gen 26:2 Gen 48:3 Acts 7:2 Gen 17:22 2Chr 1:7
2 He looked up, and there he saw three men standing near him. As soon as he saw them he ran from the entrance of the tent to greet them, and bowed to the ground.
Heb 13:2 Gen 18:22 Gen 19:1 Judg 13:3 Gen 18:16 Gen 23:7 Gen 32:24
3 'My lord,' he said, 'if I find favour with you, please do not pass your servant by.
4 Let me have a little water brought, and you can wash your feet and have a rest under the tree.
Gen 19:2 Gen 43:24 Gen 24:32 Luke 7:44 1Sam 25:41 1Tim 5:10 John 13:5-15
5 Let me fetch a little bread and you can refresh yourselves before going further, now that you have come in your servant's direction.' They replied, 'Do as you say.'
Judg 13:15 Gen 19:8 Gen 33:10 Judg 6:18 Judg 19:5 Ps 104:15 Isa 3:1
6 Abraham hurried to the tent and said to Sarah, 'Quick, knead three measures of best flour and make loaves.'
1Pet 4:9 Acts 16:15 Gal 5:13 Heb 13:2 Isa 32:8 Luke 10:38-40 Matt 13:33
7 Then, running to the herd, Abraham took a fine and tender calf and gave it to the servant, who hurried to prepare it.
Amos 6:4 Gen 19:3 Judg 13:15-16 Luke 15:23 Luke 15:27 Luke 15:30 Mal 1:14
8 Then taking curds, milk and the calf which had been prepared, he laid all before them, and they ate while he remained standing near them under the tree.
Gen 19:3 Acts 10:41 Deut 32:14 Gal 5:13 John 12:2 Judg 5:25 Judg 13:15
9 'Where is your wife Sarah?' they asked him. 'She is in the tent,' he replied.
Gen 24:67 Gen 4:9 Gen 31:33 Titus 2:5
10 Then his guest said, 'I shall come back to you next year, and then your wife Sarah will have a son.' Sarah was listening at the entrance of the tent behind him.
Gen 21:2 Gen 17:21 Gen 17:19 Rom 9:8-9 2Kgs 4:16-17 Gal 4:23 Gal 4:28
11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well on in years, and Sarah had ceased to have her monthly periods.
Gen 17:17 Heb 11:11-12 Gen 17:24 Gen 31:35 Heb 11:19 Lev 15:19 Luke 1:7
12 So Sarah laughed to herself, thinking, 'Now that I am past the age of childbearing, and my husband is an old man, is pleasure to come my way again?'
1Pet 3:6 Gen 17:17 Gen 21:6-7 Eph 5:33 Gen 18:13 Heb 11:11-12 Luke 1:18-20
13 But Yahweh asked Abraham, 'Why did Sarah laugh and say, "Am I really going to have a child now that I am old?"
14 Nothing is impossible for Yahweh. I shall come back to you at the same time next year and Sarah will have a son.'
Luke 1:37 Matt 19:26 Jer 32:27 Mark 10:27 Job 42:2 Jer 32:17 Eph 3:20
15 Sarah said, 'I did not laugh,' lying because she was afraid. But he replied, 'Oh yes, you did laugh.'
1John 1:8 Col 3:9 Eph 4:23 Gen 4:9 Gen 12:13 Job 2:10 John 2:25
16 From there the men set out and arrived within sight of Sodom, with Abraham accompanying them to speed them on their way.
3John 1:6 Acts 15:3 Acts 20:38 Acts 21:5 Rom 15:24
17 Now Yahweh had wondered, 'Shall I conceal from Abraham what I am going to do,
Amos 3:7 Ps 25:14 Gen 19:24 John 15:15 2Chr 20:7 2Kgs 4:27 Jas 2:23
18 as Abraham will become a great and powerful nation and all nations on earth will bless themselves by him?
Gal 3:8 Gen 26:4 Acts 3:25-26 Eph 1:3 Gal 3:14 Gen 12:2-3 Gen 22:17-18
19 For I have singled him out to command his sons and his family after him to keep the way of Yahweh by doing what is upright and just, so that Yahweh can carry out for Abraham what he has promised him.'
Deut 4:9-10 Deut 11:19-21 Eph 6:4 Josh 24:15 1Chr 28:9 1Tim 3:4-5 2Sam 7:20
20 Then Yahweh said, 'The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin is so grave,
Gen 19:13 Ezek 16:49-50 Gen 4:10 Isa 3:9 Jas 5:4 Gen 13:13 Isa 5:7
21 that I shall go down and see whether or not their actions are at all as the outcry reaching me would suggest. Then I shall know.'
Gen 11:5 Exod 3:8 Exod 33:5 Gen 11:7 Josh 22:22 1Thess 4:16 2Cor 11:11
22 While the men left there and went to Sodom, Yahweh remained in Abraham's presence.
Gen 19:1 Jer 18:20 Ps 106:23 1Tim 2:1 Acts 7:55 Ezek 22:30 Jer 15:1
23 Abraham stepped forward and said, 'Will you really destroy the upright with the guilty?
Num 16:22 2Sam 24:17 Gen 20:4 Ps 11:4-7 Gen 18:25 Heb 10:22 Jas 5:17
24 Suppose there are fifty upright people in the city. Will you really destroy it? Will you not spare the place for the sake of the fifty upright in it?
Isa 1:9 Jer 5:1 Matt 7:13-14 Acts 27:24 Gen 18:32
25 Do not think of doing such a thing: to put the upright to death with the guilty, so that upright and guilty fare alike! Is the judge of the whole world not to act justly?'
Deut 32:4 Isa 3:10-11 Job 8:3 Job 8:20 Ps 58:11 Ps 94:2 Rom 3:5-6
26 Yahweh replied, 'If I find fifty upright people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place because of them.'
Jer 5:1 Ezek 22:30 Isa 65:8 Isa 6:13 Isa 10:22 Isa 19:24 Matt 24:22
27 Abraham spoke up and said, 'It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord, I who am dust and ashes:
Gen 3:19 Isa 6:5 Gen 2:7 Luke 18:1 1Cor 15:47-48 2Cor 5:1-2 Eccl 12:7
28 Suppose the fifty upright were five short? Would you destroy the whole city because of five?' 'No,' he replied, 'I shall not destroy it if I find forty-five there.'
1Kgs 20:32-33 Gen 18:26 Gen 18:29 Job 23:3-4 Num 14:17-19
29 Abraham persisted and said, 'Suppose there are forty to be found there?' 'I shall not do it,' he replied, 'for the sake of the forty.'
Eph 6:18 Heb 4:16
30 Abraham said, 'I hope the Lord will not be angry if I go on: Suppose there are only thirty to be found there?' 'I shall not do it,' he replied, 'if I find thirty there.'
Esth 4:11-16 Gen 44:18 Heb 12:28-29 Isa 6:5 Isa 55:8-9 Job 40:4 Judg 6:39
31 He said, 'It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord: Suppose there are only twenty there?' 'I shall not destroy it,' he replied, 'for the sake of the twenty.'
Eph 6:18 Gen 18:27 Heb 4:16 Heb 10:20-22 Luke 11:8 Luke 18:1 Matt 7:7
32 He said, 'I trust my Lord will not be angry if I speak once more: perhaps there will only be ten.' 'I shall not destroy it,' he replied, 'for the sake of the ten.'
Judg 6:39 Jas 5:15-17 1John 5:15-16 Matt 7:7 Eph 3:20 Exod 32:9-10 Exod 32:14
33 When he had finished talking to Abraham Yahweh went away, and Abraham returned home.
