katapi HOME Genesis 19:30-38 - Generations - Lot.  Gn.19.30-38

19 30 Lot went up from Zoar and settled in the hill-country with his two daughters, because he was afraid to stay in Zoar; he lived with his two daughters in a cave. 19 31 The elder daughter said to the younger, 'Our father is old and there is not a man in the country to come to us in the usual way. 19 32 Come now, let us make our father drink wine and then lie with him and in this way keep the family alive through our father.' 19 33 So that night they gave him wine to drink, and the elder daughter came and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down and when she got up. 19 34 Next day the elder said to the younger, 'Last night I lay with my father. Let us give him wine to drink again tonight; then you go in and lie with him. So we shall keep the family alive through our father.' 19 35 So they gave their father wine to drink again that night, and the younger daughter went and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down and when she got up. 19 36 In this way both Lot's daughters came to be with child by their father. 19 37 The elder daughter bore a son and called him Moab; he was the ancestor of the present Moabites. 19 38 The younger also bore a son, whom she called Ben-ammi; he was the ancestor of the present Ammonites.
