טרם ישכבו ואנשי העיר אנשי סדום. כָּךְ נִדְרַשׁ בִּבְ"רַ טֶרֶם יִשְׁכָּבוּ וְאַנְשֵׁי הָעִיר הָיוּ בְּפִיהֶם שֶׁל מַלְאָכִים, שֶׁהָיוּ שׁוֹאֲלִים לְלוֹט מַה טִּיבָם וּמַעֲשֵׂיהֶם וְהוּא אוֹמֵר לָהֶם רֻבָּם רְשָׁעִים; עוֹדָם מְדַבְּרִים בָּהֶם וְאַנְשֵׁי סְדוֹם וְגוֹ'. וּפְשׁוּטוֹ שֶׁל מִקְרָא וְאַנְשֵׁי הָעִיר אַנְשֵׁי רֶשַׁע, נָסַבּוּ עַל הַבַּיִת; עַל שֶׁהָיוּ רְשָׁעִים נִקְרָאִים אַנְשֵׁי "סְדוֹם", כְּמוֹ שֶׁאָמַר הַכָּתוּב וְאַנְשֵׁי סְדֹם רָעִים וְחַטָּאִים:

טרם ישכבו ואנשי העיר אנשי סדום The following explanation is given in Genesis Rabbah 50:5: Before they lay down, the men of the city were a topic of conversation (literally, were in the mouths of the angels), for they asked Lot about their character and doings, and the latter replied that most of them were wicked. They were still speaking about them, 'ואנשי סדום וגו “when the men of Sodom etc.” However the real sense of the text is: The men of the city, wicked men, compassed the house. Because they were wicked he designates them as “men of Sodom”, just as Scripture said, (Genesis 13:13) “And the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners”.

כל העם מקצה. מִקְּצֵה הָעִיר עַד הַקָּצֶה, שֶׁאֵין אֶחָד מֵהֶם מוֹחֶה בְיָדָם, שֶׁאֲפִלּוּ צַדִּיק אֶחָד אֵין בָּהֶם:

כל העם מקצה ALL THE PEOPLE FROM EVERY QUARTER — from one end of the city to the other end, and no-one protested, for there was not even one righteous person amongst them (Genesis Rabbah 50:5).
