Sodom and Gomorrah

The association of sin with evil and against God (Gen 13:13) is developed further in the periscope of Sodom and Gomorrah.

While sin may be committed in private, God is very aware and attuned to its presence (Gen 18:20).

And the Lord said, "The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave." (Gen 18:20)

It appears that God can hear the voices of the victims of sin; moreover, the murder of Abel implies that it is the soul that cries out to God (Gen 4:9-10).

Sodom and Gomorrah demonstrate that the desire to commit ungodly acts can excite a large group of people to sin against God (Gen 19:4-5, 9).
