Sodom and Gomorrah

 

in Biblical mythology, two cities near the mouth of the Jordan River or on the western shore of the Dead Sea, whose inhabitants were infamous for their debauchery. As a punishment, god (Yahweh) destroyed the two cities and turned the land into a barren desert. The tale of Sodom and Gomorrah appeared in oral form in the second millennium B.C. Later, in the beginning or middle of the first millennium B.C., the tale was included in the cycle of tales about Abraham and Lot. The expressions “Sodom” and “Sodom and Gomorrah” are used to denote debauchery, disorder, and the like.
