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.
