Genesis 19:1-22

CEBA 1 The two messengers entered Sodom in the evening. Lot, who was sitting at the gate of Sodom, saw them, got up to greet them, and bowed low. 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. CEBA 2 He said, "Come to your servant's house, spend the night, and wash your feet. Then you can get up early and go on your way." But they said, "No, we will spend the night in the town 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.” CEBA 3 He pleaded earnestly with them, so they went with him and entered his house. He made a big meal for them, even baking 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. CEBA 4 Before they went to bed, the men of the city of Sodom—everyone from the youngest to the oldest—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. CEBA 5 and called to Lot, "Where are the men who arrived tonight? Bring them out to us so that we may know them intimately." 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.” CEBA 6 Lot went out toward the entrance, closed the door behind him, NIV 6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him CEBA 7 and said, "My brothers, don't do such an evil thing. NIV 7 and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. CEBA 8 I've got two daughters who are virgins. Let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them whatever you wish. But don't do anything to these men because they are now under the protection of my roof." 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.” CEBA 9 They said, "Get out of the way!" And they continued, "Does this immigrant want to judge us? Now we will hurt you more than we will hurt them." They pushed Lot back and came close to breaking down 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. CEBA 10 The men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house with them and slammed the door. NIV 10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. CEBA 11 Then the messengers blinded the men near the entrance of the house, from the youngest to the oldest, so that they groped around trying 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. CEBA 12 The men said to Lot, "Who's still with you here? Take away from this place your sons-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and everyone else you have 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, CEBA 13 because we are about to destroy this place. The LORD has found the cries of injustice so serious that the LORD 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.” CEBA 14 Lot went to speak to his sons-in-law, married to his daughters, and said, "Get up and get out of this place because the LORD is about to destroy the city." But his sons-in-law thought he was joking. 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. CEBA 15 When dawn broke, the messengers urged Lot, "Get up and take your wife and your two daughters who are here so that you are not swept away because of the evil in this 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.” CEBA 16 He hesitated, but because the LORD intended to save him, the men grabbed him, his wife, and two daughters by the hand, took him out, and left him outside 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. CEBA 17 After getting them out, the men said, "Save your lives! Don't look back! And don't stay in the valley. Escape to the mountains so that you are not swept away." 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!” CEBA 18 But Lot said to them, "No, my lords, please. NIV 18 But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please! CEBA 19 You've done me a favor and have been so kind to save my life. But I can't escape to the mountains since the catastrophe might overtake me there and I'd 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. CEBA 20 This city here is close enough to flee to, and it's small. It's small, right? Let me escape there, and my life will 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.” CEBA 21 He said to Lot, "I'll do this for you as well; I won't overthrow the city that you have described. NIV 21 He said to him, “Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. CEBA 22 Hurry! Escape to it! I can't do anything until you get there." That is why the name of the city is Zoar. NIV 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it.” (That is why the town was called Zoar. )
