But to whom shall I guess this generation like? It is like to children sitting in the market, that cry to their peers [which, crying to their peers],

For if the virtues that be done in thee, had been done in Sodom, peradventure they should have dwelled till unto this day.]
Nevertheless I say to you, that to the land of Sodom it shall be less pain in the day of doom, than to thee.
