The city of the plain destroyed by fire. (Genesis 19:24) The name seems suited to the place. Om, or Am, a people; Morah, or Marah, of bitterness. We have the awful relation of the event of Sodom and Gomorrha's overthrow in the chapter before referred to. And certain it is, that it was intended as a standing monument in the church of divine judgments. Israel is reminded of it Deuteronomy 29:1-29 throughout. And in allusion to the fire of Gomorrha, the apostle Jude describes the sad ruin of sinners under the image of suffering eternal fire. (Jude 1:1:7) And Peter to the same effect. (2 Peter 2:6) And in the Revelations the everlasting torments of the damned are described by the same image, in reference to Sodom and Gomorrha—"in a lake that burneth with fire and brimstone." (Revelation 21:8)

Had there been ten righteous men in Sodom and Gomorrha, the Lord's grace would have been manifested in the salvation of the place. Blessed be our God, there is one in the Gomorrha of our world whose name is Wonderful, and for whose sake it stands to the present hour, and who will be the cause of his people's salvation to all eternity!
