15我实在告诉你们,在审判的日子,所多玛和蛾摩拉所受的,比那城还轻呢。
15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
15 Verse 15. In the day of judgment] Or, punishment,-κρισεως.

Perhaps not meaning the day of general judgment, nor the day of

the destruction of the Jewish state by the Romans; but a day in

which God should send punishment on that particular city, or on

that person, for their crimes. So the day of judgment of Sodom

and Gomorrah, was the time in which the Lord destroyed them by

fire and brimstone, from the Lord out of heaven.



If men are thus treated for not receiving the preachers of the

Gospel, what will it be to despise the Gospel itself-to decry

it-to preach the contrary-to hinder the preaching of it-to abuse

those who do preach it in its purity-or to render it fruitless by

calumnies and lies! Their punishment, our Lord intimates, shall

be greater than that inflicted on the inhabitants of Sodom and

Gomorrah!
