 Sod·om /ˈsɑdəm/

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: any location known for vice and corruption
      2: (Old Testament) an ancient city near the Dead Sea that
         (along with Gomorrah) was destroyed by God for the
         wickedness of its inhabitants

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    burning; the walled, a city in the vale of Siddim (Gen. 13:10;
    14:1-16). The wickedness of its inhabitants brought down upon it
    fire from heaven, by which it was destroyed (18:16-33; 19:1-29;
    Deut. 23:17). This city and its awful destruction are frequently
    alluded to in Scripture (Deut. 29:23; 32:32; Isa. 1:9, 10; 3:9;
    13:19; Jer. 23:14; Ezek. 16:46-56; Zeph. 2:9; Matt. 10:15; Rom.
    9:29; 2 Pet. 2:6, etc.). No trace of it or of the other cities
    of the plain has been discovered, so complete was their
    destruction. Just opposite the site of Zoar, on the south-west
    coast of the Dead Sea, is a range of low hills, forming a mass
    of mineral salt called Jebel Usdum, "the hill of Sodom." It has
    been concluded, from this and from other considerations, that
    the cities of the plain stood at the southern end of the Dead
    Sea. Others, however, with much greater probability, contend
    that they stood at the northern end of the sea. [in 1897].
