Lot Welcomes the Angels
(Judges 19:1–30)
1Now the two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When Lot saw them, he got up to meet them, bowed facedown, 2and said, “My lords, please turn aside into the house of your servant; wash your feet and spend the night. Then you can rise early and go on your way.”
“No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”
3But Lot insisted so strongly that they followed him into his house. He prepared a feast for them and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
4Before they had gone to bed, all the men of the city of Sodom, both young and old, surrounded the house. 5They called out to Lot, saying, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Send them out to us so we can have relations with them!”
6Lot went outside to meet them, shutting the door behind him. 7“Please, my brothers,” he pleaded, “don’t do such a wicked thing! 8Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them to you, and you can do to them as you please. But do not do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”
9“Get out of the way!” they replied. And they declared, “This one came here as a foreigner, and he is already acting like a judge! Now we will treat you worse than them.” And they pressed in on Lot and moved in to break down the door.
10But the men inside reached out, pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11And they struck the men at the entrance, young and old, with blindness, so that they wearied themselves trying to find the door.
Lot Flees to Zoar
12Then the two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—a son-in-law, your sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13because we are about to destroy this place. For the outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that He has sent us to destroy it.”
14So Lot went out and spoke to the sons-in-law who were pledged in marriage to his daughters. “Get up,” he said. “Get out of this place, for the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.
15At daybreak the angels hurried Lot along, saying, “Get up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city.” 16But when Lot hesitated, the men grabbed his hand and the hands of his wife and his two daughters. And they led them safely out of the city, because of the Lord’s compassion for them.
17As soon as the men had brought them out, one of them said, “Run for your lives! Do not look back, and do not stop anywhere on the plain! Flee to the mountains, or you will be swept away!”
18But Lot replied, “No, my lords, please! 19Your servant has indeed found favor in your sight, and you have shown me great kindness by sparing my life. But I cannot run to the mountains; the disaster will overtake me, and I will die. 20Look, there is a town nearby where I can flee, and it is a small place. Please let me flee there—is it not a small place? Then my life will be saved.”
21“Very well,” he answered, “I will grant this request as well, and will not demolish the town you indicate. 22Hurry! Run there quickly, for I cannot do anything until you reach it.” That is why the town was called Zoar.#19:22 Zoar means small.
23And by the time the sun had risen over the land, Lot had reached Zoar.
The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah
(Luke 17:20–37)
24Then the Lord rained down sulfur and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25Thus He destroyed these cities and the entire plain, including all the inhabitants of the cities and everything that grew on the ground.
26But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
27Early the next morning, Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah and all the land of the plain, and he saw the smoke rising from the land like smoke from a furnace.
29So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, He remembered Abraham, and He brought Lot out of the catastrophe that destroyed the cities where he had lived.
Lot and His Daughters
30Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains—for he was afraid to stay in Zoar—where they lived in a cave.
31One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man in the land to sleep with us, as is the custom over all the earth. 32Come, let us get our father drunk with wine so we can sleep with him and preserve his line.”
33So that night they got their father drunk with wine, and the firstborn went in and slept with her father; he was not aware when she lay down or when she got up.
34The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Look, I slept with my father last night. Let us get him drunk with wine again tonight so you can go in and sleep with him and we can preserve our father’s line.”
35So again that night they got their father drunk with wine, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him; he was not aware when she lay down or when she got up.
36Thus both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. 37The older daughter gave birth to a son and named him Moab.#19:37 Moab sounds like the Hebrew for from my father. He is the father of the Moabites of today. 38The younger daughter also gave birth to a son, and she named him Ben-ammi.#19:38 Ben-ammi means son of my people. He is the father of the Ammonites of today.

Genesis 19

19
1And there came two angels to S’dom (burning, denotes penal constrictions around the ankles) at even; and Lot (Covering) sat in the gate of S’dom: and Lot seeing [them] rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
2And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into yourf servant’s house, and wait all night, and wash yourf feet, and youf shall rise up early, and go on yourf ways. And they said, No; but we will abide in the street all night.
3And 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.
4But before they lay down, the men of the city, [even] the men of S’dom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
5And they called unto Lot (Covering), and said unto him, Where [are] the men which came in to youi this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do youf to them as [is] good in yourf eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
9And they said, Stand back. And they said [again], This one [fellow] came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with youi, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, [even] Lot, and came near to break the door.
10But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
11And they struck the men that [were] at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
12And the men said unto Lot, Have youi here any besides? son in law, and youri sons, and youri daughters, and whatsoever youi have in the city, bring [them] out of this place:
13For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); and the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has sent us to destroy it.
14And Lot went out, and spoke unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get youi out of this place; for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
15And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take youri wife, and your i two daughters, which are here; lest youi be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16And 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; the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
17And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for youri life; look not behind youi, neither stay youi in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest youi be consumed.
18And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord (Ruler of the Earth):
19Behold now, youri servant has found grace in youri sight, and youi have magnified youri mercy, which youi have showed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
20Behold now, this city [is] near to flee unto, and it [is] a little one: Oh, let me escape there, ([is] it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
21And he said unto him, See, I have accepted youi concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which youi have spoken.
22Haste youi, escape there; for I cannot do anything till youi come there. Therefore the name of the city was called Tzo’ar (little place).
23The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot (Covering) entered into Tzo’ar (little place).
24Then the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) rained upon S’dom (burning, denotes penal constrictions around the ankles) and upon ‘Amora (submersion, Tyrants, bind sheaves, People of Fear) sulfur and fire from the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) out of heaven;
25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
26But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
27And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] got up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate):
28And he looked toward S’dom (burning, denotes penal constrictions around the ankles) and ‘Amora (submersion, Tyrants, bind sheaves, People of Fear), and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
29And it came to pass, when God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] destroyed the cities of the plain, that God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] remembered Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
30And Lot went up out of Tzo’ar (little place), and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Tzo’ar (little place): and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father [is] old, and [there is] not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
32Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yester night with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go youi in, [and] lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36In the following manner were both the daughters of Lot (Covering) with child by their father.
37And the firstborn bore a son, and called his name Mo’av (of his father; Who’s Your Daddy!?): the same is the father of the Mo’av (of his father; Who’s Your Daddy!?) unto this day.
38And the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-’’Ammi [my people] (son of my grandfather): the same is the father of the children of ‘‘Amon [master workman] (bastard; hidden one) unto this day.
