The Cry is Great

Genesis 18:20-22
And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 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.

And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

Two different words for cry are used here. The first one comes from a word indicating an assembly gathered together and making a proclamation. The second comes from a word where that gathering would be summoning for help.

Perhaps we need to call together an assembly and proclaim our need to summon help from God.
