And there acame two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and bLot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; And he said, Behold now, my lords, cturn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and dwash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, eNay; but we will abide in the street all night. And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: fAnd they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? gbring them out unto us, that we hmay know them. And iLot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. kBehold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; lfor therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow mcame in to sojourn, nand he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. 10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. 11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with oblindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. 12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, pbring them out of this place: 13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it. 14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his qsons in law, which married his daughters, and said, rUp, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. 15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the ||iniquity of the city. 16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; sthe Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. 17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; tlook not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
