A story about three men and revenge

Abraham and Sarah are visited by three identically dressed travellers who seem to know everything that is lost to the past and the future will bring. The strange wanderers are armed and vengeful.

Why have they arrived? Who are they? Are they guardians or angels sent by an angry God?
