katapi HOME Genesis 19:1-11 - The sinfulness of Sodom.  Gn.19.1-11

19 1 The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 19 2 and said, "My lords, turn aside, please, to your servant's house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way." They said, "No; we will spend the night in the street." 19 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 19 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 19 5 and they called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them." 19 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 19 7 and said, "I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly. 19 8 Behold, I have two daughters who have not known man; let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please; only do nothing to these men, for they have come under the shelter of my roof." 19 9 But they said, "Stand back!" And they said, "This fellow came to sojourn, and he would play the judge! Now we will deal worse with you than with them." Then they pressed hard against the man Lot, and drew near to break the door. 19 10 But the men put forth their hands and brought Lot into the house to them, and shut the door. 19 11 And they struck with blindness the men who were at the door of the house, both small and great, so that they wearied themselves groping for the door.
