Headword: Κραυγὴ Σοδόμων
Adler number: kappa,2351
Translated headword: cry of Sodom
Vetting Status: high
This most abominable and insane transgression against nature practiced by the Sodomites, like some voice rising and shouting the magnitude of the impiety into the ears of the Lord of the Sabbath. And he, long-suffering, because of the stubbornness and intransigence of their promiscuous and incorrigible thinking, later brought upon them quite justly his punishment, saying, 'the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah has propagated itself in my presence'.[1]
Greek Original:
Κραυγὴ Σοδόμων: ἡ μυσαρωτάτη καὶ λυσσώδης αὕτη παρὰ φύσιν ἁμαρτία ὑπὸ Σοδομιτῶν διαπραττομένη, ὥσπερ τις φωνὴ ἀνερχομένη καὶ βοῶσα τὸ μέγεθος τῆς ἀσεβείας εἰς τὰ ὦτα κυρίου Σαβαώθ. καὶ ὁ μακροθυμήσας ὕστερον διὰ τὸ ἀμετανόητον αὐτῶν καὶ ἀνεπίστροφον τῆς ἀδιακρίτου καὶ ἀκολάστου γνώμης ἐπάξας μάλα δικαίως τὴν τιμωρίαν ἔφασκε, κραυγὴ Σοδόμων καὶ Γομόρρας πεπλήθυνται πρός με.
