Genesis 19

LEB 1 And the two angels came to Sodom in the evening. And Lot was sitting in the gateway of Sodom. Then Lot saw [them] and stood up to meet them. And he bowed down [with his] face to the ground. NIV 1 The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. LEB 2 And he said, "Behold, my lords, please turn aside into the house of your servant and spend the night and wash your feet. Then you can rise early and go on your way." And they said, "No, but we will spend the night in the square." NIV 2 “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.” “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.” LEB 3 But {he urged them strongly}, and they turned aside with him and came into his house. And he made a meal for them and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. NIV 3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. LEB 4 Before they laid down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people {to the last man}, surrounded the house. NIV 4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. LEB 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, "Where [are] the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we may know them." NIV 5 They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” LEB 6 But Lot went out to them at the entrance, and he shut the door behind him. NIV 6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him LEB 7 And he said, "No, my brothers, please do not do [such a] wrong [thing]. NIV 7 and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. LEB 8 Behold, I have two daughters who have not known a man. Please, let me bring them out to you; then do to them as [it seems] good in your eyes. Only to these men do not do [this] thing, since they came under{ my roof} for protection." NIV 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.” LEB 9 But they said, "Step aside!" Then they said, "{This fellow} came to dwell as a foreigner and he acts as a judge! Now we shall do worse to you than them!" And they pressed very hard against the man, against Lot, and they drew near to break the door. NIV 9 “Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door. LEB 10 Then the men reached out [with] their hands and brought Lot in to them, into the house, and they shut the door. NIV 10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. LEB 11 And the men who [were] at the entrance of the house they struck with blindness, both small and great, and they were unable to find the entrance. NIV 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door. LEB 12 Then the men said to Lot, "Who [is] here with you? Bring out from the place [your] sons-in-law, and your sons and your daughters, and all who [are] with you in the city. NIV 12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, LEB 13 For we are [about to] destroy this place, because their cry has become great before Yahweh. Yahweh sent us to destroy it." NIV 13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.” LEB 14 Then Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law [who were] taking his daughters and said, "Get up! Go out from this place, because Yahweh [is going] to destroy the city!" But {it seemed like a joke} in the eyes of his sons-in-law. NIV 14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking. LEB 15 And as the dawn came up the angels urged Lot saying, "Get up, take your wife and your two daughters {who are staying with you}, lest you be destroyed with the punishment of the city." NIV 15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.” LEB 16 But [when] he lingered, the men seized him by his hand and his wife's hand, and his two daughters by hand, on account of the mercy of Yahweh upon him. And they brought him out and set him outside of the city. NIV 16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. LEB 17 And after bringing them outside [one] said, "Flee for your life; do not look behind you, and do not stand anywhere in the plain. Flee to the mountains lest you be destroyed." NIV 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!” LEB 18 And Lot said to them, "No, please, my lords. NIV 18 But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please! LEB 19 Behold, your servant has found favor in your eyes and {you have shown me great kindness} in saving my life. But I cannot flee to the mountains, lest the disaster overtake me and I die. NIV 19 Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die. LEB 20 Behold, this city [is] near [enough] to flee there, and it [is a] little [one]. Please, let me flee there. Is it not a little [one]? Then my life shall be saved." NIV 20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it—it is very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared.” LEB 21 And he said to him, "Behold, {I will grant this favor as well}; that I will not overthrow the city of which you have spoken. NIV 21 He said to him, “Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. LEB 22 Escape there quickly, for I cannot do [this] thing until you get there." Therefore, there name of the city was called Zoar. NIV 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it.” (That is why the town was called Zoar. ) LEB 23 [After] the sun {had risen} upon the earth and Lot had entered Zoar, NIV 23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. LEB 24 Yahweh rained down from heaven upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from Yahweh. NIV 24 Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the LORD out of the heavens. LEB 25 And he overthrew those cities and the whole plain, and the inhabitants of the cities and the vegetation of the ground. NIV 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. LEB 26 But his wife looked {back}, and she became a pillar of salt. NIV 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. LEB 27 And Abraham arose early in the morning [and went] to the place where he had stood before Yahweh. NIV 27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the LORD. LEB 28 And he looked down upon the surface of Sodom and Gomorrah, and upon the whole surface of the land, the plain. And he saw that, behold, the smoke of the land went up like the smoke of a smelting furnace. NIV 28 He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace. LEB 29 So it was, when God destroyed the cities of the plain that God remembered Abraham and sent Lot out from the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in which Lot lived. NIV 29 So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived. LEB 30 And Lot went out from Zoar and settled in the hill country with his two daughters, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. So he lived in a cave, he and his two daughters. NIV 30 Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave. LEB 31 And the firstborn [daughter] said to the younger one, "Our father is old, and there is no man in the land to come in to us according to the manner of all the land. NIV 31 One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. LEB 32 Come, let us give our father wine to drink and let us lie with him that {we may secure descendants through our father}." NIV 32 Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.” LEB 33 And they gave their father wine to drink that night, and the firstborn went and lay with her father, but he did not know when she lay down or when she got up. NIV 33 That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and slept with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up. LEB 34 And it happened [that], the next day the firstborn said to the younger one, "Look, I laid with my father last night. Let us give him wine to drink also tonight, then go and lie with him that {we may secure descendants through our father}." NIV 34 The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Last night I slept with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in and sleep with him so we can preserve our family line through our father.” LEB 35 And they gave their father wine to drink again that night, and the younger got up and lay with him, but he did not know when she lay down or when she got up. NIV 35 So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up. LEB 36 And the two daughters of Lot became pregnant by their father. NIV 36 So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. LEB 37 The firstborn gave birth to a son, and she called his name Moab. He [is] the father of Moab until this day. NIV 37 The older daughter had a son, and she named him Moab ; he is the father of the Moabites of today. LEB 38 And the younger, she also gave birth to a son, and she called his name Ben-Ammi. He [is] the father of the {Ammonites} until this day. NIV 38 The younger daughter also had a son, and she named him Ben-Ammi ; he is the father of the Ammonites of today.
