Sodom


"Burning; the walled, a city in the vale of Siddim (Gen. 13:10;" 14:1-16). The wickedness of its inhabitants brought down upon it "fire from heaven, by which it was destroyed (18:16-33; 19:1-29;" Deut. 23:17). This city and its awful destruction are frequently "alluded to in Scripture (Deut. 29:23; 32:32; Isa. 1:9, 10; 3:9;" 13:19; Jer. 23:14; Ezek. 16:46-56; Zeph. 2:9; Matt. 10:15; Rom. "9:29; 2 Pet. 2:6, etc.). No trace of it or of the other cities" "of the plain has been discovered, so complete was their" "destruction. Just opposite the site of Zoar, on the south-west" "coast of the Dead Sea, is a range of low hills, forming a mass" "of mineral salt called Jebel Usdum, "the hill of Sodom." It has" "been concluded, from this and from other considerations, that" the cities of the plain stood at the southern end of the Dead "Sea. Others, however, with much greater probability, contend" that they stood at the northern end of the sea. [in 1897].

"(Rom. 9:29; R.V., "Sodom"), the Greek form for Sodom."

Those who imitated the licentious wickedness of Sodom (Deut. "23:17; 1 Kings 14:24; Rom. 1:26, 27). Asa destroyed them "out of" "the land" (1 Kings 15:12), as did also his son Jehoshaphat" (22:46).
