Genesis 18:21 (King James Version)
I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
- I will go down
- This is spoken figuratively; and as the Jewish writers speak, according to the language of men. So eyes, ears, hands, and other members of the body are attributed to God, for effecting those things which men cannot accomplish without these members.
