Encyclopedia Judaica[edit]

This claim More recently, scholars have suggested that it is more likely for the narrative to be based on a kernel of truth, particularly since it accounts for the stark contrast in the biblical narrative between the character of the tribe before the incident and its character afterwards.[4] is only referenced to the EJ. I cannot find it without a volume and page reference and will remove it if none is provided.81.129.212.237 (talk) 21:32, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Incoherence[edit]

This entire article is as incoherent as the Biblical narrative itself. Indeed, after a few lines about interpretation, the rest merely reproduces a long excerpt from some uncredited translation -- which is not the purpose of Wikipedia. Where is the expected analysis of context, intent, and plausibility, including the peculiar resemblance to the story of Sodom? Other related Wikipedia pages do a much better job; perhaps the page here should be folded in or simply removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.169.193.222 (talk) 19:54, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
