    Genesis 18

    1 And the LORD appeared to him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;AKJV — Genesis 18:1

    2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, see, 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,AKJV — Genesis 18:2

    3 And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in your sight, pass not away, I pray you, from your servant:AKJV — Genesis 18:3

    4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:AKJV — Genesis 18:4

    5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort you your hearts; after that you shall pass on: for therefore are you come to your servant. And they said, So do, as you have said.AKJV — Genesis 18:5

    11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.AKJV — Genesis 18:11

    12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?AKJV — Genesis 18:12

    20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;AKJV — Genesis 18:20
