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 gateway of the city. When he saw them he rose to meet them and bowed low with his face to the ground. 19 2 He said, 'I pray you, sirs, turn aside to my humble home, spend the night there and wash your feet; you can rise early and continue your journey.' 'No,' they answered, 'we will spend the night in the street.' 19 3 But Lot was so insistent that they did turn aside and enter his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking unleavened cakes, and they ate them. 19 4 Before they lay down to sleep, the men of Sodom, both young and old, surrounded the house—everyone without exception. 19 5 They called to Lot and asked him where the men were who had entered his house that night. 'Bring them out', they shouted, 'so that we can have intercourse with them.' 19 6 Lot went out into the doorway to them, closed the door behind him 19 7 and said, 'No, my friends, do not be so wicked. 19 8 Look, I have two daughters, both virgins ; let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them ; but do not touch these men, because they have come under the shelter of my roof.' 19 9 They said, 'Out of our way! This man has come and settled here as an alien, and does he now take it upon himself to judge us? We will treat you worse than them.' They crowded in on the man Lot and pressed close to smash in the door. 19 10 But the two men inside reached out, pulled Lot in, and closed the door. 19 11 Then they struck the men in the doorway with blindness, both small and great, so that they could not ?nd the door.
