I am the city where Abraham interceded with God to try to avoid it's destruction.

What city am I?

Genesis 18:16-33

   16: And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.
   17: And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
   18: Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
   19: For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
   20: And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
   21: 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.
   22: And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
   23: And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
   24: Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
   25: That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
   26: And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
   27: And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:
   28: Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.
   29: And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.
   30: And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.
   31: And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.
   32: And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.
   33: And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.
