without going into your other arguments, place names such as "scorched"
are in fact very common. I was recently driving, for example, through a
Russian village named Pogorelovo ("the burned one"), and there are many
> I do not base my argument on Gesenius’ work. I specifically said that
whereas Gesenius sees “Sodom” as meaning “scorched”, no historical city would have
a name meaning “scorched”. Gesenius has missed the two more important puns
here, which tell us that rather than being a fictional city, Sodom for the
most part represents historical Beth Shan.
