And he said, Behold, I pray◦, my lords, turn··aside, I pray◦, to▵ the house of your servant, and pass··the··night, and bathe your feet; and you shall get··up··early, and go◦ on your way; and they said, No◦, for we will pass··the··night in the avenue.
Behold now◦, I have◦ two daughters, who have· not ·known a man◦; now◦ let me bring· them ·out to▵ you, and you may do to them as is good in your eyes; only to these men◦ do not a thing; for therefore have they come into the shadow of the beams* of my roof.
And they said, Move aside!* And they said, Is one come to sojourn, and judging shall he judge? Now will we do··evil to thee more than to them◦. And they pressed* on◦ the man◦, on◦ Lot, exceedingly; and approached to break the door.
And Lot went··out, and spoke to▵ his sons-in-law who were to take his daughters, and said, Arise, go··out from this place, for Jehovah will destroy the city. And in the eyes of his sons-in-law he was as one jesting.
And he lingered; and the men◦ held· his hand ·firmly, and the hand of his wife, and the hand of his two daughters, with the pity* of Jehovah upon him, and they brought· him ·out, and placed him outside the city.
And it was, as they were bringing· them ·out outside, that He said, Escape for▵ thy soul; look not back after thee, and stand not in all the plain; escape towards the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
Behold, I pray◦, thy servant has found grace in thine eyes, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast done with··me, to make my soul live, and I▵ am· not ·able to escape to the mountain, lest the evil stick to me, and I die.
And it was on the morrow, and the firstborn said to▵ the younger▵, Behold, I, lay last··night with my father; let us give· him wine ·to··drink◦ tonight also, and go· thou ·in and lie with him, and cause the seed from our father to live.
