Genesis 19


1  And there came935 two8147 angels4397 to Sodom5467 at even;6153 and Lot3876 sat3427 in the gate8179 of Sodom:5467 and Lot3876 seeing7200 them rose up6965 to meet7125 them; and he bowed himself7812 with his face639 toward the ground;776

2  And he said,559 Behold2009 now,4994 my lords,113 turn in,5493 I pray you,4994 into413 your servant's5650 house,1004 and tarry all night,3885 and wash7364 your feet,7272 and ye shall rise up early,7925 and go1980 on your ways.1870 And they said,559 Nay;3808 but3588 we will abide in the street all night.3885 7339

3  And he pressed6484 upon them greatly;3966 and they turned in5493 unto413 him, and entered935 into413 his house;1004 and he made6213 them a feast,4960 and did bake644 unleavened bread,4682 and they did eat.398

4  But before2962 they lay down,7901 the men376 of the city,5892 even the men376 of Sodom,5467 compassed5437 5921 the house1004 round, both old2205 and young,4480 5288 all3605 the people5971 from every quarter:4480 7097

5  And they called7121 unto413 Lot,3876 and said559 unto him, Where346 are the men376 which834 came in935 to413 thee this night?3915 bring them out3318 unto413 us, that we may know3045 them.

6  And Lot3876 went out3318 at the door6607 unto413 them, and shut5462 the door1817 after310 him,

7  And said,559 I pray you,4994 brethren,251 do not so wickedly.7489 408

8  Behold2009 now,4994 I have two8147 daughters1323 which834 have not3808 known3045 man;376 let me, I pray you,4994 bring them out3318 853 unto413 you, and do6213 ye to them as is good2896 in your eyes:5869 only7535 unto these411 men376 do6213 nothing;408 1697 for3588 therefore5921 3651 came935 they under the shadow6738 of my roof.6982

9  And they said,559 Stand5066 back.1973 And they said559 again, This one259 fellow came in935 to sojourn,1481 and he will needs be a judge:8199 8199 now6258 will we deal worse7489 with thee, than4480 with them. And they pressed6484 sore3966 upon the man,376 even Lot,3876 and came near5066 to break7665 the door.1817

10  But the men376 put forth7971 853 their hand,3027 and pulled935 853 Lot3876 into the house1004 to413 them, and shut to5462 the door.1817

11  And they smote5221 the men376 that834 were at the door6607 of the house1004 with blindness,5575 both small4480 6996 and great:1419 so that they wearied themselves3811 to find4672 the door.6607

12  And the men376 said559 unto413 Lot,3876 Hast thou here6311 any4310 besides5750 a son-in-law,2860 and thy sons,1121 and thy daughters?1323 and whatsoever3605 834 thou hast in the city,5892 bring3318 them out of4480 this place:4725

13  For3588 we587 will destroy7843 853 this2088 place,4725 because3588 the cry6818 of them is waxen great1431 853 before the face6440 of the LORD;3068 and the LORD3068 hath sent7971 us to destroy7843 it.

14  And Lot3876 went out,3318 and spoke1696 unto413 his sons-in-law,2860 which married3947 his daughters,1323 and said,559 Up,6965 get you out3318 of4480 this2088 place;4725 for3588 the LORD3068 will destroy7843 853 this city.5892 But he seemed1961 as one that mocked6711 unto5869 his sons-in-law.2860

15  And when3644 the morning7837 arose,5927 then the angels4397 hastened213 Lot,3876 saying,559 Arise,6965 take3947 853 thy wife,802 and thy two8147 daughters,1323 which are here;4672 lest6435 thou be consumed5595 in the iniquity5771 of the city.5892

16  And while he lingered,4102 the men376 laid hold2388 upon his hand,3027 and upon the hand3027 of his wife,802 and upon the hand3027 of his two8147 daughters;1323 the LORD3068 being merciful2551 unto5921 him: and they brought him forth,3318 and set5117 him without4480 2351 the city.5892

17  And it came to pass,1961 when they had brought them forth3318 853 abroad,2351 that he said,559 Escape4422 for5921 thy life;5315 look5027 not408 behind310 thee, neither408 stay5975 thou in all3605 the plain;3603 escape4422 to the mountain,2022 lest6435 thou be consumed.5595

18  And Lot3876 said559 unto413 them, Oh,4994 not408 so, my Lord:136

19  Behold2009 now,4994 thy servant5650 hath found4672 grace2580 in thy sight,5869 and thou hast magnified1431 thy mercy,2617 which834 thou hast showed6213 unto5973 me in saving2421 853 my life;5315 and I595 cannot3808 3201 escape4422 to the mountain,2022 lest6435 some evil7451 take1692 me, and I die:4191

20  Behold2009 now,4994 this2063 city5892 is near7138 to flee5127 unto,8033 and it1931 is a little one:4705 Oh,4994 let me escape4422 thither,8033 (is it1931 not3808 a little one?)4705 and my soul5315 shall live.2421

21  And he said559 unto413 him, See,2009 I have accepted5375 6440 thee concerning this2088 thing1697 also,1571 that I will not1115 overthrow2015 853 this city,5892 for the which834 thou hast spoken.1696

22  Haste4116 thee, escape4422 thither;8033 for3588 I cannot3808 3201 do6213 any thing1697 till5704 thou be come935 thither.8033 Therefore5921 3651 the name8034 of the city5892 was called7121 Zoar.6820

23  The sun8121 was risen3318 upon5921 the earth776 when Lot3876 entered935 into Zoar.6820

24  Then the LORD3068 rained4305 upon5921 Sodom5467 and upon5921 Gomorrah6017 brimstone1614 and fire784 from4480 854 the LORD3068 out of4480 heaven;8064

25  And he overthrew2015 853 those411 cities,5892 and all3605 the plain,3603 and all3605 the inhabitants3427 of the cities,5892 and that which grew6780 upon the ground.127

26  But his wife802 looked5027 back from behind4480 310 him, and she became1961 a pillar5333 of salt.4417

27  And Abraham85 got up early7925 in the morning1242 to413 the place4725 where834 8033 he stood5975 853 before6440 the LORD:3068

28  And he looked8259 toward5921 6440 Sodom5467 and Gomorrah,6017 and toward5921 6440 all3605 the land776 of the plain,3603 and beheld,7200 and, lo,2009 the smoke7008 of the country776 went up5927 as the smoke7008 of a furnace.3536

29  And it came to pass,1961 when God430 destroyed7843 853 the cities5892 of the plain,3603 that God430 remembered2142 853 Abraham,85 and sent7971 853 Lot3876 out of the midst4480 8432 of the overthrow,2018 when he overthrew2015 853 the cities5892 in the which2004 834 Lot3876 dwelt.3427

30  And Lot3876 went up5927 out of Zoar,4480 6820 and dwelt3427 in the mountain,2022 and his two8147 daughters1323 with5973 him; for3588 he feared3372 to dwell3427 in Zoar:6820 and he dwelt3427 in a cave,4631 he1931 and his two8147 daughters.1323

31  And the firstborn1067 said559 unto413 the younger,6810 Our father1 is old,2204 and there is not369 a man376 in the earth776 to come in935 unto5921 us after the manner1870 of all3605 the earth:776

32  Come,1980 let us make 853 our father1 drink8248 wine,3196 and we will lie7901 with5973 him, that we may preserve2421 seed2233 of our father.4480 1

33  And they made 853 their father1 drink8248 wine3196 that1931 night:3915 and the firstborn1067 went in,935 and lay7901 with854 her father;1 and he perceived3045 not3808 when she lay down,7901 nor when she arose.6965

34  And it came to pass1961 on the morrow,4480 4283 that the firstborn1067 said559 unto413 the younger,6810 Behold,2005 I lay7901 last night570 with854 my father:1 let us make him drink8248 wine3196 this night3915 also;1571 and go thou in,935 and lie7901 with5973 him, that we may preserve2421 seed2233 of our father.4480 1

35  And they made 853 their father1 drink8248 wine3196 that1931 night3915 also:1571 and the younger6810 arose,6965 and lay7901 with5973 him; and he perceived3045 not3808 when she lay down,7901 nor when she arose.6965

36  Thus were both8147 the daughters1323 of Lot3876 with child2029 by their father.4480 1

37  And the firstborn1067 bore3205 a son,1121 and called7121 his name8034 Moab:4124 the same1931 is the father1 of the Moabites4124 unto5704 this day.3117

38  And the younger,6810 she1931 also1571 bore3205 a son,1121 and called7121 his name8034 Ben-ammi:1151 the same1931 is the father1 of the children1121 of Ammon5983 unto5704 this day.3117


1 ἦλθον δὲ οἱ δύο ἄγγελοι εἰς Σοδομα ἑσπέρας Λωτ δὲ ἐκάθητο παρὰ τὴν πύλην Σοδομων ἰδὼν δὲ Λωτ ἐξανέστη εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτοῖς καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ προσώπῳ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν

2 καὶ εἶπεν ἰδού κύριοι ἐκκλίνατε εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ παιδὸς ὑμῶν καὶ καταλύσατε καὶ νίψασθε τοὺς πόδας ὑμῶν καὶ ὀρθρίσαντες ἀπελεύσεσθε εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν ὑμῶν εἶπαν δέ οὐχί ἀλλ᾽ ἐν τῇ πλατείᾳ καταλύσομεν

3 καὶ κατεβιάζετο αὐτούς καὶ ἐξέκλιναν πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτοῖς πότον καὶ ἀζύμους ἔπεψεν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἔφαγον

4 πρὸ τοῦ κοιμηθῆναι καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως οἱ Σοδομῖται περιεκύκλωσαν τὴν οἰκίαν ἀπὸ νεανίσκου ἕως πρεσβυτέρου ἅπας ὁ λαὸς ἅμα

5 καὶ ἐξεκαλοῦντο τὸν Λωτ καὶ ἔλεγον πρὸς αὐτόν ποῦ εἰσιν οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ εἰσελθόντες πρὸς σὲ τὴν νύκτα ἐξάγαγε αὐτοὺς πρὸς ἡμᾶς ἵνα συγγενώμεθα αὐτοῖς

6 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Λωτ πρὸς αὐτοὺς πρὸς τὸ πρόθυρον τὴν δὲ θύραν προσέῳξεν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ

7 εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς αὐτούς μηδαμῶς ἀδελφοί μὴ πονηρεύσησθε

8 εἰσὶν δέ μοι δύο θυγατέρες αἳ οὐκ ἔγνωσαν ἄνδρα ἐξάξω αὐτὰς πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ χρήσασθε αὐταῖς καθὰ ἂν ἀρέσκῃ ὑμῖν μόνον εἰς τοὺς ἄνδρας τούτους μὴ ποιήσητε μηδὲν ἄδικον οὗ εἵνεκεν εἰσῆλθον ὑπὸ τὴν σκέπην τῶν δοκῶν μου

9 εἶπαν δέ ἀπόστα ἐκεῖ εἷς ἦλθες παροικεῖν μὴ καὶ κρίσιν κρίνειν νῦν οὖν σὲ κακώσομεν μᾶλλον ἢ ἐκείνους καὶ παρεβιάζοντο τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν Λωτ σφόδρα καὶ ἤγγισαν συντρῖψαι τὴν θύραν

10 ἐκτείναντες δὲ οἱ ἄνδρες τὰς χεῖρας εἰσεσπάσαντο τὸν Λωτ πρὸς ἑαυτοὺς εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ τὴν θύραν τοῦ οἴκου ἀπέκλεισαν

11 τοὺς δὲ ἄνδρας τοὺς ὄντας ἐπὶ τῆς θύρας τοῦ οἴκου ἐπάταξαν ἀορασίᾳ ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου καὶ παρελύθησαν ζητοῦντες τὴν θύραν

12 εἶπαν δὲ οἱ ἄνδρες πρὸς Λωτ ἔστιν τίς σοι ὧδε γαμβροὶ ἢ υἱοὶ ἢ θυγατέρες ἢ εἴ τίς σοι ἄλλος ἔστιν ἐν τῇ πόλει ἐξάγαγε ἐκ τοῦ τόπου τούτου

13 ὅτι ἀπόλλυμεν ἡμεῖς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον ὅτι ὑψώθη ἡ κραυγὴ αὐτῶν ἐναντίον κυρίου καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἡμᾶς κύριος ἐκτρῖψαι αὐτήν

14 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Λωτ καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς τοὺς γαμβροὺς αὐτοῦ τοὺς εἰληφότας τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ἀνάστητε καὶ ἐξέλθατε ἐκ τοῦ τόπου τούτου ὅτι ἐκτρίβει κύριος τὴν πόλιν ἔδοξεν δὲ γελοιάζειν ἐναντίον τῶν γαμβρῶν αὐτοῦ

15 ἡνίκα δὲ ὄρθρος ἐγίνετο ἐπεσπούδαζον οἱ ἄγγελοι τὸν Λωτ λέγοντες ἀναστὰς λαβὲ τὴν γυναῖκά σου καὶ τὰς δύο θυγατέρας σου ἃς ἔχεις καὶ ἔξελθε ἵνα μὴ συναπόλῃ ταῖς ἀνομίαις τῆς πόλεως

16 καὶ ἐταράχθησαν καὶ ἐκράτησαν οἱ ἄγγελοι τῆς χειρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ τῆς χειρὸς τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν χειρῶν τῶν δύο θυγατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ φείσασθαι κύριον αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἐξήγαγον αὐτοὺς ἔξω καὶ εἶπαν σῴζων σῷζε τὴν σεαυτοῦ ψυχήν μὴ περιβλέψῃς εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω μηδὲ στῇς ἐν πάσῃ τῇ περιχώρῳ εἰς τὸ ὄρος σῴζου μήποτε συμπαραλημφθῇς

18 εἶπεν δὲ Λωτ πρὸς αὐτούς δέομαι κύριε

19 ἐπειδὴ εὗρεν ὁ παῖς σου ἔλεος ἐναντίον σου καὶ ἐμεγάλυνας τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου ὃ ποιεῖς ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ τοῦ ζῆν τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐγὼ δὲ οὐ δυνήσομαι διασωθῆναι εἰς τὸ ὄρος μὴ καταλάβῃ με τὰ κακὰ καὶ ἀποθάνω

20 ἰδοὺ ἡ πόλις αὕτη ἐγγὺς τοῦ καταφυγεῖν με ἐκεῖ ἥ ἐστιν μικρά ἐκεῖ σωθήσομαι οὐ μικρά ἐστιν καὶ ζήσεται ἡ ψυχή μου

21 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἰδοὺ ἐθαύμασά σου τὸ πρόσωπον καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ῥήματι τούτῳ τοῦ μὴ καταστρέψαι τὴν πόλιν περὶ ἧς ἐλάλησας

22 σπεῦσον οὖν τοῦ σωθῆναι ἐκεῖ οὐ γὰρ δυνήσομαι ποιῆσαι πρᾶγμα ἕως τοῦ σε εἰσελθεῖν ἐκεῖ διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα τῆς πόλεως ἐκείνης Σηγωρ

23 ὁ ἥλιος ἐξῆλθεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ Λωτ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς Σηγωρ

24 καὶ κύριος ἔβρεξεν ἐπὶ Σοδομα καὶ Γομορρα θεῖον καὶ πῦρ παρὰ κυρίου ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ

25 καὶ κατέστρεψεν τὰς πόλεις ταύτας καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν περίοικον καὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν καὶ πάντα τὰ ἀνατέλλοντα ἐκ τῆς γῆς

26 καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω καὶ ἐγένετο στήλη ἁλός

27 ὤρθρισεν δὲ Αβρααμ τὸ πρωὶ εἰς τὸν τόπον οὗ εἱστήκει ἐναντίον κυρίου

28 καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον Σοδομων καὶ Γομορρας καὶ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τῆς γῆς τῆς περιχώρου καὶ εἶδεν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνέβαινεν φλὸξ τῆς γῆς ὡσεὶ ἀτμὶς καμίνου

29 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐκτρῖψαι κύριον πάσας τὰς πόλεις τῆς περιοίκου ἐμνήσθη ὁ θεὸς τοῦ Αβρααμ καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν τὸν Λωτ ἐκ μέσου τῆς καταστροφῆς ἐν τῷ καταστρέψαι κύριον τὰς πόλεις ἐν αἷς κατῴκει ἐν αὐταῖς Λωτ

30 ἀνέβη δὲ Λωτ ἐκ Σηγωρ καὶ ἐκάθητο ἐν τῷ ὄρει καὶ αἱ δύο θυγατέρες αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐφοβήθη γὰρ κατοικῆσαι ἐν Σηγωρ καὶ ᾤκησεν ἐν τῷ σπηλαίῳ αὐτὸς καὶ αἱ δύο θυγατέρες αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

31 εἶπεν δὲ ἡ πρεσβυτέρα πρὸς τὴν νεωτέραν ὁ πατὴρ ἡμῶν πρεσβύτερος καὶ οὐδείς ἐστιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὃς εἰσελεύσεται πρὸς ἡμᾶς ὡς καθήκει πάσῃ τῇ γῇ

32 δεῦρο καὶ ποτίσωμεν τὸν πατέρα ἡμῶν οἶνον καὶ κοιμηθῶμεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξαναστήσωμεν ἐκ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν σπέρμα

33 ἐπότισαν δὲ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν οἶνον ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ταύτῃ καὶ εἰσελθοῦσα ἡ πρεσβυτέρα ἐκοιμήθη μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην καὶ οὐκ ᾔδει ἐν τῷ κοιμηθῆναι αὐτὴν καὶ ἀναστῆναι

34 ἐγένετο δὲ τῇ ἐπαύριον καὶ εἶπεν ἡ πρεσβυτέρα πρὸς τὴν νεωτέραν ἰδοὺ ἐκοιμήθην ἐχθὲς μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν ποτίσωμεν αὐτὸν οἶνον καὶ τὴν νύκτα ταύτην καὶ εἰσελθοῦσα κοιμήθητι μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξαναστήσωμεν ἐκ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν σπέρμα

35 ἐπότισαν δὲ καὶ ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν οἶνον καὶ εἰσελθοῦσα ἡ νεωτέρα ἐκοιμήθη μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς καὶ οὐκ ᾔδει ἐν τῷ κοιμηθῆναι αὐτὴν καὶ ἀναστῆναι

36 καὶ συνέλαβον αἱ δύο θυγατέρες Λωτ ἐκ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν

37 καὶ ἔτεκεν ἡ πρεσβυτέρα υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Μωαβ λέγουσα ἐκ τοῦ πατρός μου οὗτος πατὴρ Μωαβιτῶν ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας

38 ἔτεκεν δὲ καὶ ἡ νεωτέρα υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Αμμαν υἱὸς τοῦ γένους μου οὗτος πατὴρ Αμμανιτῶν ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας

1 Veneruntque duo angeli Sodomam vespere, et sedente Lot in foribus civitatis. Qui cum vidisset eos, surrexit, et ivit obviam eis: adoravitque pronus in terram,

2 et dixit: Obsecro, domini, declinate in domum pueri vestri, et manete ibi: lavate pedes vestros, et mane proficiscemini in viam vestram. Qui dixerunt: Minime, sed in platea manebimus.

3 Compulit illos oppido ut diverterent ad eum: ingressisque domum illius fecit convivium, et coxit azyma, et comederunt.

4 Prius autem quam irent cubitum, viri civitatis vallaverunt domum a puero usque ad senem, omnis populus simul.

5 Vocaveruntque Lot, et dixerunt ei: Ubi sunt viri qui introierunt ad te nocte? educ illos huc, ut cognoscamus eos.

6 Egressus ad eos Lot, post tergum occludens ostium, ait:

7 Nolite, quæso, fratres mei, nolite malum hoc facere.

8 Habeo duas filias, quæ necdum cognoverunt virum: educam eas ad vos, et abutimini eis sicut vobis placuerit, dummodo viris istis nihil mali faciatis, quia ingressi sunt sub umbra culminis mei.

9 At illi dixerunt: Recede illuc. Et rursus: Ingressus es, inquiunt, ut advena; numquid ut judices? te ergo ipsum magis quam hos affligemus. Vimque faciebant Lot vehementissime: jamque 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 cæcitate a minimo usque ad maximum, ita ut ostium invenire non possent.

12 Dixerunt autem ad Lot: Habes hic quempiam tuorum? generum, aut filios, aut filias, omnes, qui tui sunt, educ de urbe hac:

13 delebimus enim locum istum, eo quod increverit clamor eorum coram Domino, qui misit nos ut perdamus illos.

14 Egressus itaque Lot, locutus est ad generos suos qui accepturi erant filias ejus, et dixit: Surgite, egredimini de loco isto: quia delebit Dominus civitatem hanc. Et visus est eis quasi ludens loqui.

15 Cumque esset mane, cogebant eum angeli, dicentes: Surge, tolle uxorem tuam, et duas filias quas habes: ne et tu pariter pereas in scelere civitatis.

16 Dissimulante illo, apprehenderunt manum ejus, et manum uxoris, ac duarum filiarum ejus, eo quod parceret Dominus illi.

17 Eduxeruntque eum, et posuerunt extra civitatem: ibique locuti sunt ad eum, dicentes: Salva animam tuam: noli respicere post tergum, nec stes in omni circa regione: sed in monte salvum te fac, ne et tu simul pereas.

18 Dixitque Lot ad eos: Quæso, domine mi,

19 quia 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 est civitas hæc juxta, 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 Gomorrham sulphur et ignem a Domino de cælo:

25 et subvertit civitates has, et omnem circa regionem, universos habitatores urbium, et cuncta terræ virentia.

26 Respiciensque uxor ejus post se, versa est in statuam salis.

27 Abraham autem consurgens mane, ubi steterat prius cum Domino,

28 intuitus est Sodomam et Gomorrham, et universam terram regionis illius: viditque ascendentem favillam de terra quasi fornacis fumum.

29 Cum enim subverteret Deus civitates regionis illius, recordatus Abrahæ, liberavit Lot de subversione urbium in quibus habitaverat.

30 Ascenditque Lot de Segor, et mansit in monte, duæ quoque filiæ ejus cum eo (timuerat enim manere in Segor) et mansit in spelunca ipse, et duæ filiæ ejus cum eo.

31 Dixitque major ad minorem: Pater noster senex est, et nullus virorum remansit in terra, qui possit ingredi ad nos juxta morem universæ terræ.

32 Veni, inebriemus eum vino, dormiamusque cum eo, ut servare possimus ex patre nostro semen.

33 Dederunt itaque patri suo bibere vinum nocte illa. Et ingressa est major, dormivitque cum patre; at ille non sensit, nec quando accubuit filia, nec quando surrexit.

34 Altera quoque die dixit major ad minorem: Ecce dormivi heri cum patre meo, demus ei bibere vinum etiam hac nocte, et dormies cum eo, ut salvemus semen de patre nostro.

35 Dederunt etiam et illa nocte patri suo bibere vinum, ingressaque minor filia, dormivit cum eo: et ne tunc quidem sensit quando concubuerit, vel quando illa surrexerit.

36 Conceperunt ergo duæ filiæ Lot de patre suo.

37 Peperitque major filium, et vocavit nomen ejus Moab: ipse est pater Moabitarum usque in præsentem diem.

38 Minor quoque peperit filium, et vocavit nomen ejus Ammon, id est, Filius populi mei: ipse est pater Ammonitarum usque hodie.
