18:23 Here and in 20:4,5 G-d is asked about causing the righteous to suffer. Here G-d acknowledges Avraham and finds further proof. On 20;4,5 G-d seems to back down completely.
Are Avraham’s and Avimelech’s questions the same?
What do we learn from G-d’s responses?
Why did Avraham think G-d would destroy the righteous with the wicked. Surely G-d could have saved the righteous.
