1 Depois apareceu o Senhor a Abraão junto aos carvalhos de Manre, estando ele sentado à porta da tenda, no maior calor do dia.

2 Levantando Abraão os olhos, olhou e eis três homens de pé em frente dele. Quando os viu, correu da porta da tenda ao seu encontro, e prostrou-se em terra,

3 e disse: Meu Senhor, se agora tenho achado graça aos teus olhos, rogo-te que não passes de teu servo.

4 Eia, traga-se um pouco d'água, e lavai os pés e recostai-vos debaixo da árvore;

5 e trarei um bocado de pão; refazei as vossas forças, e depois passareis adiante; porquanto por isso chegastes ate o vosso servo. Responderam-lhe: Faze assim como disseste.

6 Abraão, pois, apressou-se em ir ter com Sara na tenda, e disse-lhe: Amassa depressa três medidas de flor de farinha e faze bolos.

7 Em seguida correu ao gado, apanhou um bezerro tenro e bom e deu-o ao criado, que se apressou em prepará-lo.

8 Então tomou queijo fresco, e leite, e o bezerro que mandara preparar, e pôs tudo diante deles, ficando em pé ao lado deles debaixo da árvore, enquanto comiam.

9 Perguntaram-lhe eles: Onde está Sara, tua mulher? Ele respondeu: Está ali na tenda.

10 E um deles lhe disse: certamente tornarei a ti no ano vindouro; e eis que Sara tua mulher terá um filho. E Sara estava escutando à porta da tenda, que estava atrás dele.

11 Ora, Abraão e Sara eram já velhos, e avançados em idade; e a Sara havia cessado o incômodo das mulheres.

12 Sara então riu-se consigo, dizendo: Terei ainda deleite depois de haver envelhecido, sendo também o meu senhor ja velho?

13 Perguntou o Senhor a Abraão: Por que se riu Sara, dizendo: É verdade que eu, que sou velha, darei à luz um filho?

14 Há, porventura, alguma coisa difícil ao Senhor? Ao tempo determinado, no ano vindouro, tornarei a ti, e Sara terá um filho.

15 Então Sara negou, dizendo: Não me ri; porquanto ela teve medo. Ao que ele respondeu: Não é assim; porque te riste.

16 E levantaram-se aqueles homens dali e olharam para a banda de Sodoma; e Abraão ia com eles, para os encaminhar.

17 E disse o Senhor: Ocultarei eu a Abraão o que faço,

18 visto que Abraão certamente virá a ser uma grande e poderosa nação, e por meio dele serão benditas todas as nações da terra?

19 Porque eu o tenho escolhido, a fim de que ele ordene a seus filhos e a sua casa depois dele, para que guardem o caminho do Senhor, para praticarem retidão e justiça; a fim de que o Senhor faça vir sobre Abraão o que a respeito dele tem falado.

20 Disse mais o Senhor: Porquanto o clamor de Sodoma e Gomorra se tem multiplicado, e porquanto o seu pecado se tem agravado muito,

21 descerei agora, e verei se em tudo têm praticado segundo o seu clamor, que a mim tem chegado; e se não, sabê-lo-ei.

22 Então os homens, virando os seus rostos dali, foram-se em direção a Sodoma; mas Abraão ficou ainda em pé diante do Senhor.

23 E chegando-se Abraão, disse: Destruirás também o justo com o ímpio?

24 Se porventura houver cinqüenta justos na cidade, destruirás e não pouparás o lugar por causa dos cinqüenta justos que ali estão?

25 Longe de ti que faças tal coisa, que mates o justo com o ímpio, de modo que o justo seja como o ímpio; esteja isto longe de ti. Não fará justiça o juiz de toda a terra?

26 Então disse o Senhor: Se eu achar em Sodoma cinqüenta justos dentro da cidade, pouparei o lugar todo por causa deles.

27 Tornou-lhe Abraão, dizendo: Eis que agora me atrevi a falar ao Senhor, ainda que sou pó e cinza.

28 Se porventura de cinqüenta justos faltarem cinco, destruirás toda a cidade por causa dos cinco? Respondeu ele: Não a destruirei, se eu achar ali quarenta e cinco.

29 Continuou Abraão ainda a falar-lhe, e disse: Se porventura se acharem ali quarenta? Mais uma vez assentiu: Por causa dos quarenta não o farei.

30 Disse Abraão: Ora, não se ire o Senhor, se eu ainda falar. Se porventura se acharem ali trinta? De novo assentiu: Não o farei, se achar ali trinta.

31 Tornou Abraão: Eis que outra vez me a atrevi a falar ao Senhor. Se porventura se acharem ali vinte? Respondeu-lhe: Por causa dos vinte não a destruirei.

32 Disse ainda Abraão: Ora, não se ire o Senhor, pois só mais esta vez falarei. Se porventura se acharem ali dez? Ainda assentiu o Senhor: Por causa dos dez não a destruirei.

33 E foi-se o Senhor, logo que acabou de falar com Abraão; e Abraão voltou para o seu lugar.
