The following is the results of your search for Sodom.
Sodom: Burning; the walled, a city in the vale of Siddim
(Genesis 13:10; 14:1-16)
The wickedness of its inhabitants brought down upon it fire from
heaven, by which it was destroyed
(Genesis 18:16-33; 19:1-29; Deuteronomy 23:17) This
city and its awful destruction are frequently alluded to in Scripture
(Deuteronomy 29:23; 32:32; Isaiah 1:9,10; 3:9; 13:19; Jeremiah 23:14; Ezekiel 16:46-56; Zephaniah 2:9)
(Matthew 10:15; Romans 9:29; 2 Peter 2:6) etc. No trace of it or of the other cities
of the plain has been discovered, so complete was their destruction.
Just opposite the site of Zoar, on the south-west coast of the Dead
Sea, is a range of low hills, forming a mass of mineral salt called
Jebel Usdum, "the hill of Sodom." It has been concluded, from this
and from other considerations, that the cities of the plain stood at
the southern end of the Dead Sea.
