and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

and that cannot cease from sin;
beguiling unstable souls:

and are gone astray,
following the way of Balaam  the son of Bosor,
who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

16 But was rebuked for his iniquity:
the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice
forbad the madness of the prophet.

Revelation 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed,
and them that commit adultery with her
into great tribulation,
