Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:1 - Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and [fn]bowed down with his face to the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:2 - And he said, “Now behold, my lords, please turn aside into your servant’s house, and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.” They said however, “No, but we shall spend the night in the square.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:3 - Yet he urged them strongly, so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he prepared a feast for them, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:4 - Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, all the people [fn]from every quarter;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:5 - and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may [fn]have relations with them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:6 - But Lot went out to them at the doorway, and shut the door behind him,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:7 - and said, “Please, my brothers, do not act wickedly.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:8 - “Now behold, I have two daughters who have not [fn]had relations with man; please let me bring them out to you, and do to them [fn]whatever you like; only do nothing to these men, inasmuch as they have come under the [fn]shelter of my roof.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:9 - But they said, “Stand aside.” Furthermore, they said, “This one came in [fn]as an alien, and already he is acting like a judge; now we will treat you worse than them.” So they pressed hard against [fn]Lot and came near to break the door.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:10 - But the men reached out their [fn]hands and brought Lot into the house [fn]with them, and shut the door.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:11 - They [fn]struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they wearied themselves trying to find the doorway.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:12 - Then the two men said to Lot, “Whom else have you here? A son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, bring them out of the place;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:13 - for we are about to destroy this place, because their outcry has become so great before the LORD that the LORD has sent us to destroy it.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:14 - Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who [fn]were to marry his daughters, and said, “Up, get out of this place, for the LORD will destroy the city.” But he appeared to his sons-in-law [fn]to be jesting.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:15 - When morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the [fn]punishment of the city.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:16 - But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the [fn]hands of his two daughters, for the compassion of the LORD was upon him; and they brought him out, and put him outside the city.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:17 - When they had brought them outside, [fn]one said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you, and do not stay [fn]anywhere in the valley; escape to the [fn]mountains, or you will be swept away.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:18 - But Lot said to them, “Oh no, my lords!

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:19 - “Now behold, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have magnified your lovingkindness, which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the [fn]mountains, for the disaster will overtake me and I will die;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:20 - now behold, this town is near enough to flee to, and it is small. Please, let me escape there (is it not small?) [fn]that my life may be saved.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:21 - He said to him, “Behold, I grant you this [fn]request also, not to overthrow the town of which you have spoken.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:22 - “Hurry, escape there, for I cannot do anything until you arrive there.” Therefore the name of the town was called [fn]Zoar.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:23 - The sun had risen over the earth when Lot came to Zoar.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:24 - Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:25 - and He overthrew those cities, and all the [fn]valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:26 - But his wife, from behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:27 - Now Abraham arose early in the morning and went to the place where he had stood before the LORD;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:28 - and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the [fn]valley, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land ascended like the smoke of a [fn]furnace.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:29 - Thus it came about, when God destroyed the cities of the [fn]valley, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot lived.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:30 - Lot went up from Zoar, and [fn]stayed in the [fn]mountains, and his two daughters with him; for he was afraid to [fn]stay in Zoar; and he [fn]stayed in a cave, he and his two daughters.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:31 - Then the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is not a man [fn]on earth to come in to us after the manner of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:32 - “Come, let us make our father drink wine, and let us lie with him that we may preserve [fn]our family through our father.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:33 - So they made their father drink wine that night, and the firstborn went in and lay with her father; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:34 - On the following day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine tonight also; then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve [fn]our family through our father.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:35 - So they made their father drink wine that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:36 - Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:37 - The firstborn bore a son, and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 19:38 - As for the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi; he is the father of the [fn]sons of Ammon to this day.
