Couldnt find the 10th


אולי ימצאון שם עשרה

I found in Parshas וירא 
& חיי שרה a total of 9 צדיקים.

1) אברהם
2) יצחק
3) ישמעאל *
4) אליעזר**
5) אבימלך ***
6) לוט ****
7) ענר *****
8) אשכול
9) ממרא

* see Rashi Breishis 25:17

** דרך ארץ זוטא 1:5 

***אבימלך said on himself הגוי גם צדיק תהרוג - Rashi in Tehillim quotes the Midrash   
 that he was a צדיק.

**** When one sees אשת לוט he makes two Brachos. The second Bracha is זוכר הצדיקים.
The כף החיים writes this Bracha refers to לוט.

***** The Midrash writes it was called קרית ארבע because of the four צדיקים
who lived there אברהם,ענר,אשכול, ממרא
