The Plea of Abraham


My Lord, If you can find but fifty,

Surely, will you still destroy the city?

But what if there are only forty-five,

Will you still destroy or pass on by?

Again, I petition, what if only forty,

I know for that you’ll call off the sortie.

I’m on my knees for the sake of thirty,

Would you still get your hands dirty?

I beseech you anew, yet for only twenty

I know that that few has to be plenty.

Lastly, I beg, would you save it for only ten.

“For just that few, I will pass over them.”

From Genesis 18:16-33
