The overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim

As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah And their neighbors,” says the Lord, “So no one shall reside there, Nor son of man dwell in it. Jeremiah 50:40

I discovered today that Sodom and Gomorrah are mentioned quite often throughout the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation! What does God's word tell us about Sodom and Gomorrah and its neighbors?

TORAH
Genesis 10:19 (border of the Canaanites)
Genesis 13:10-13 (Lot journeyed east)
Genesis 14 (war)
Genesis 18-19 (Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed)
Deuteronomy 29:23 (they have become like S&G)
Deuteronomy 32:32 (their 'blessing' is a curse)

PROPHETS

Isaiah 3:9 (They declare their sin as Sodom)
Isaiah 13:19 (Babylon will be as when God overthrew S&G)
Jeremiah 23:14 (Jerusalem's inhabitants are like S&G)
Jeremiah 49:18 (Edom also...as in the overthrow of S&G)

Ezekiel 16:46-56 (you became more corrupt than your sister Sodom)
Amos 4:11 (I overthrew some of you...as S&G)
Zephaniah 2:9 (Moab and Ammon will be like S&G)

Matthew 11:23-24 (if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom)
Mark 6:11 (it will be more tolerable for S&G in the day of judgment)
Luke 10:12 (it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom)
Luke 17:29 (so it will be also)
2 Peter 2:6 (making them an example)
Jude 1:7 (are set forth as an example)
Revelation 11:8 (spiritually is called Sodom...where also our Lord was crucified)

What did Sodom and Gomorrah do to offend God?
"But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord." Genesis 13:13

"Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, 'Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.'" Genesis 19:4-5

"...they declare their sin as Sodom; they do not hide it..." Isaiah 3:9

"Also I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem:
They commit adultery and walk in lies;
They also strengthen the hands of evildoers,
So that no one turns back from his wickedness.
All of them are like Sodom to Me,
And her inhabitants like Gomorrah." Jeremiah 23:14

"Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit." Ezekiel 16:49-50

"ungodly" 2 Peter 2:6

"...having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh..." Jude 1:7
