1 Veneruntque duo angeli Sodomam vespere, sedente Lot in foribus civitatis. Qui cum vidisset eos, surrexit et ivit obviam eis adoravitque pronus in terram
2 et dixit: "Obsecro, domini mei, declinate in domum pueri vestri et pernoctate; lavate pedes vestros et mane proficiscemini in viam vestram" Qui dixerunt: "Minime, sed in platea pernoctabimus"
3 Compulit illos oppido, et diverterunt ad eum. Ingressisque domum illius fecit convivium et coxit azyma, et comederunt.
4 Prius autem quam irent cubitum, viri civitatis, viri Sodomae, vallaverunt domum a iuvene usque ad senem, omnis populus simul.
5 Vocaveruntque Lot et dixerunt ei: "Ubi sunt viri, qui introierunt ad te nocte? Educ illos ad nos, ut cognoscamus eos"
6 Egressus ad eos Lot post tergum occludens ostium ait:
7 "Nolite, quaeso, fratres mei, nolite malum hoc facere.
8 Ecce, habeo duas filias, quae necdum cognoverunt virum; educam eas ad vos, et facite eis sicut placuerit vobis, dummodo viris istis nihil faciatis; ideo enim ingressi sunt sub umbra tecti mei"
9 At illi dixerunt: "Recede illuc" Et rursus: "Unus ingressus est, inquiunt, ut advena et vult iudicare? Te ergo ipsum magis quam hos affligemus" Vimque faciebant Lot vehementissime, iamque prope erat, ut effringerent fores.
10 Et ecce miserunt manum viri et introduxerunt ad se Lot clauseruntque ostium;
11 et eos, qui foris erant, percusserunt caecitate a minimo usque ad maximum, ita ut ostium invenire non possent.
12 Dixerunt autem viri ad Lot: "Habes hic quempiam tuorum? Generum et filios et filias et omnes, qui tui sunt in urbe, educ de loco hoc:
13 delebimus enim locum istum, eo quod increverit clamor contra eos coram Domino, qui misit nos, ut perdamus eam"
14 Egressus itaque Lot locutus est ad generos suos, qui accepturi erant filias eius, et dixit: "Surgite, egredimini de loco isto, quia delebit Dominus civitatem" Et visus est eis quasi ludens loqui.
15 Cumque esset mane, cogebant eum angeli dicentes: "Surge, tolle uxorem tuam et duas filias, quas habes hic, ne pereas in scelere civitatis"
16 Tardante illo, apprehenderunt viri manum eius et manum uxoris ac duarum filiarum eius, eo quod parceret Dominus illi.
17 Et eduxerunt eum posueruntque extra civitatem. Ibi locutus est: "Salvare, agitur de vita tua; noli respicere post tergum, nec stes in omni circa regione; sed in monte salvum te fac, ne pereas"
18 Dixitque Lot ad eos: "Non, quaeso, Domine.
19 Ecce invenit servus tuus gratiam coram te, et magnificasti misericordiam tuam, quam fecisti mecum, ut salvares animam meam; nec possum in monte salvari, ne forte apprehendat me malum et moriar.
20 Ecce, civitas haec iuxta, ad quam possum fugere, parva, et salvabor in ea numquid non modica est? et vivet anima mea"
21 Dixitque ad eum: "Ecce, etiam in hoc suscepi preces tuas, ut non subvertam urbem, pro qua locutus es.
22 Festina et salvare ibi, quia non potero facere quidquam, donec ingrediaris illuc" Idcirco vocatum est nomen urbis illius Segor.
23 Sol egressus est super terram, et Lot ingressus est Segor.
24 Igitur Dominus pluit super Sodomam et Gomorram sulphur et ignem a Domino de caelo
25 et subvertit civitates has et omnem circa regionem, universos habitatores urbium et cuncta terrae virentia.
26 Respiciensque uxor eius post se versa est in statuam salis.
27 Abraham autem consurgens mane venit ad locum, ubi steterat prius cum Domino,
28 intuitus est Sodomam et Gomorram et universam terram regionis illius; viditque ascendentem favillam de terra quasi fornacis fumum.
29 Cum enim subverteret Deus civitates regionis illius, recordatus Abrahae liberavit Lot de subversione urbium, in quibus habitaverat.
30 Ascenditque Lot de Segor et mansit in monte, duae quoque filiae eius cum eo; timuerat enim manere in Segor. Et mansit in spelunca ipse et duae filiae eius.
31 Dixitque maior ad minorem: "Pater noster senex est, et nullus virorum remansit in terra, qui possit ingredi ad nos iuxta morem universae terrae.
32 Veni, inebriemus patrem nostrum vino dormiamusque cum eo, ut servare possimus ex patre nostro semen"
33 Dederunt itaque patri suo bibere vinum nocte illa, et ingressa est maior dormivitque cum patre; at ille non sensit, nec quando accubuit filia nec quando surrexit.
34 Altera quoque die dixit maior ad minorem: "Ecce, dormivi heri cum patre meo; demus ei bibere vinum etiam hac nocte, et ingressa dormies cum eo, ut salvemus semen de patre nostro"
35 Dederunt et illa nocte patri suo bibere vinum, ingressaque minor filia dormivit cum eo; et ne tunc quidem sensit, quando illa concubuerit vel quando surrexerit.
36 Conceperunt ergo duae filiae Lot de patre suo.
37 Peperitque maior filium et vocavit nomen eius Moab; ipse est pater Moabitarum usque in praesentem diem.
38 Minor quoque peperit filium et vocavit nomen eius Benammi (id est Filius populi mei); ipse est pater Ammonitarum usque hodie.
King James Version
1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
4 ¶ But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
12 ¶ And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.
14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
15 ¶ And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
17 ¶ And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
23 ¶ The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
26 ¶ But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
27 ¶ And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:
28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
29 ¶ And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
30 ¶ And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
