Sodom and Gomorrah

Sodom was the chief town of a group of five towns on the plain of the Jordan River in an area that constituted the southern limit of the lands of the Canaanites (Genesis 10:19). Lot, a nephew of Abram (Abraham) chose to live in the city. According to the Bible, both Sodom and Gomorrah —called as a group The Cities on the Plain—were destroyed by God for their sins. Opinions differ as to what the sin actually was.
