Is it this?

Book of Jasher, Chapter 19

1 And the cities of Sodom had four judges to four cities, and these were their names, Serak in the city of Sodom, Sharkad in Gomorrah, Zabnac in Admah, and Menon in Zeboyim.

2 And Eliezer Abraham's servant applied to them different names, and he converted Serak to Shakra, Sharkad to Shakrura, Zebnac to Kezobim, and Menon to Matzlodin.

3 And by desire of their four judges the people of Sodom and Gomorrah had beds erected in the streets of the cities, and if a man came to these places they laid hold of him and brought him to one of their beds, and by force made him to lie in them.

4 And as he lay down, three men would stand at his head and three at his feet, and measure him by the length of the bed, and if the man was less than the bed these six men would stretch him at each end, and when he cried out to them they would not answer him.

5 And if he was longer than the bed they would draw together the two sides of the bed at each end, until the man had reached the gates of death.

You guys can start a new thread...
You started a thread on Sodom and Gomorrah. Seriously ...where did you expect it to go? No one (or very few anyway) knows anything about S&G other than that they were destroyed because of ...well, you know what . . .we've all heard the story regurgitated many times.

My thoughts are that Sodom and Gomorrah probably never existed and anything we know of them is no more than a fanciful tale, a story that was told to perhaps explain the emergence of a new tribe.
