8"Now behold, I have two daughters who have not had relations with man; please let me bring them out to you, and do to them whatever you like ; only do nothing to these men, inasmuch as they have come under the shelter of my roof."
6Then God said to him in the dream, "Yes, I know that in the integrity of your heart you have done this, and I also kept you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her.7"Now therefore, restore the man's wife, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live.
