In that vein...
The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained
standing before the Lord. Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will
you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty
righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not
spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? Far
be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the
wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from
you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of
Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”
Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to
speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, what if
the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy
the whole city for lack of five people?”
“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”
Once again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”
He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”
Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What if
only thirty can be found there?”
He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”
Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord,
what if only twenty can be found there?”
He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”
Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once
more. What if only ten can be found there?”
He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”
When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and
Abraham returned home.
Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where
he had stood before the Lord. He looked down toward Sodom and
Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke
rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.
