Matthew 10:15

_ _ Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable — more bearable.

_ _ for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city — Those Cities of the Plain, which were given to the flames for their loathsome impurities, shall be treated as less criminal, we are here taught, than those places which, though morally respectable, reject the Gospel message and affront those that bear it.
