 Go·mor·rah /gəˈmɔrə/

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : (Old Testament) an ancient city near the Dead Sea that
          (along with Sodom) was destroyed by God for the vice and
          depravity of its inhabitants [syn: Gomorrha]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    submersion, one of the five cities of the plain of Siddim (q.v.)
    which were destroyed by fire (Gen. 10:19; 13:10; 19:24, 28).
    These cities probably stood close together, and were near the
    northern extremity of what is now the Dead Sea. This city is
    always mentioned next after Sodom, both of which were types of
    impiety and wickedness (Gen. 18:20; Rom. 9:29). Their
    destruction is mentioned as an "ensample unto those that after
    should live ungodly" (2 Pet. 2:6; Jude 1:4-7). Their wickedness
    became proverbial (Deut. 32:32; Isa. 1:9, 10; Jer. 23:14). But
    that wickedness may be exceeded (Matt. 10:15; Mark 6:11). (See
    DEAD SEA).

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Gomorrah, rebellious people
