I would prefer an answer from the Hebrew for reasons that will become obvious I hope.
Reading through BH I come across the interpretation that Abraham saw the Lord and two angels in Gen18. My understanding of the text is that the three men were the Lord. I personally see no issue with God taking the form of one man, two or 100 men simultaneously.
I understand where the interpretation for the former view arises from, namely Gen19 where two angels arrive in Sodom but the text doesn’t say the angels were earlier with Abraham. That is an assumption not alluded to in the earlier chapter at all.
Apparently some English translations render the text to read that only two of the men went Sodom, however I’m not convinced this is a faithful translation
Gen 18:22, "And the two men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the LORD."
What I read is that the men (all three turned away and based on v16 Abraham was following them all until they finally part ways
What the text does say is that the Lord Himself would go to see for Himself Sodom
“I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry that has come to me. And if not, I will know.”” Genesis 18:21
Of which the text speaks nothing further about. Chapter 19 starts off with two angels arriving in the evening. The logical assumption would be that the Lord who isn’t a liar went down to Sodom as He said He would (my opinion); and not that the Lord sent two angels to exact judgment prior to Him going down to Sodom unlike what He said He would do.
Another assumption is therefore also that the same day that the Lord visited Abraham was the same day the angels arrived. But I don’t see this as being evident, necessary nor true, plausible I will concede.
Seeing that the Lord was to go Himself to inquire of Sodom it doesn’t follow in my mind that these events occurred within the same day. It seems far more logical that the two events occurred on separate days.
The question once again
Does Genesis 18 indeed from the text make it clear that it was the Lord and two others, two others that didn’t receive worship and didn’t read Sarah’s mind/heart came to see Abraham or does the language in the text indicate as I read it, that the Lord was visiting Abraham as three men and all three received worship and all three read Sarah’s heart?
