- 16 Then the R462 men rose up from there, and looked down toward Sodom; and Abraham was walking with them to send them off. 17 The R463 LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what R464 I am about to do, 18 since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty F303 nation, and in him all R465 the nations of the earth will be blessed? 19 "For I have chosen R466 F304 him, so that he may command R467 his children and his household after him to keep R468 the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what R469 He has spoken about him." 20 And the LORD said, "The R470 outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave. 21 "I will go R471 down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to Me; and if not, I will know." 22 Then the R472 men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, while Abraham was still standing before the R473 LORD.
