katapi HOME Genesis 19:12-21 - Lot leaves Sodom.  Gn.19.12-21

19 12 The two men said to Lot, 'Have you anyone else here, sons-in-law, sons, or daughters, or any who belong to you in the city? Get them out of this place, 19 13 because we are going to destroy it. The outcry against it has been so great that the LORD has sent us to destroy it.' 19 14 So Lot went out and spoke to his intended sons-in-law Or his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters. He said, 'Be quick and leave this place; the LORD is going to destroy the city.' But they did not take him seriously.

19 15 As soon as it was dawn, the angels urged Lot to go, saying, 'Be quick, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.' 19 16 When he lingered, they took him by the hand, with his wife and his daughters, and, because the LORD had spared him, led him on until he was outside the city. 19 17 When they had brought them out, they said, 'Flee for your lives; do not look back and do not stop anywhere in the Plain. Flee to the hills or you will be swept away.' 19 18 Lot replied, 'No, sirs. 19 19 You have shown your servant favour and you have added to your unfailing care for me by saving my life, but I cannot escape to the hills; I shall be overtaken by the disaster, and die. 19 20 Look, here is a town, only a small place, near enough for me to reach quickly. Let me escape to it—it is very small—and save my life.' 19 21 He said to him, 'I grant your request: I will not overthrow this town you speak of.
