Judge of the whole country

How does the rabbi understand Abraham's question 'the judge of all the earth will not do justice'? Is morality binding without the stomach? And if not, if morality is something that is obligatory only following the will of God, and without it the moral obligation has no meaning, how can God be 'asked' about his lack of submission to morality?

What is the problem? Even if morality is binding only on the power of God, Abraham asks him about inconsistency.

Abraham does not know that he is talking to God.
He does understand that he is talking to someone who has the ability and has come to do justice. So he tries to manipulate by flattery by combining determining what the proper act is.

And here are three people standing on it, one of them was H. and he did not know it throughout the event
The Torah tells us that it is the and his inner speech but Abraham did not know.

If you find snakes that seduce humans and donkeys that talk then anything can be.
