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;
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.
Two angels come to Sodom.
When Lot sees them, he bows his face to the ground and invites them to
wash their feet and spend the night at his house.
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.
The angels accept Lot's invitation.
They enter Lot's house and eat the great feast that he has prepared.
The men of Sodom ask to get to know the angels
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:
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.
After dinner, when the angels were getting ready to go to bed, all the men of Sodom, young and old, came to Lot's house and
said to him,
Where are the men that are visiting you tonight?
Bring them out to us so we can know them.
Do angels have sex?
What was the sin of Sodom?
Lot offers them his two virgin daughters
And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
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.
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.
Lot said to them ,
Don't behave so wickedly.
Look, I have two virgin daughters. I will bring them out to you and you can do whatever you'd like to them.
But don't do anythng to the men who are in my house.
Was Lot a righteous man?
What the Bible says about parenting,
family values and fathers
Lot and his family leave Sodom, and God destroys it
But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them,
and shut to the door.
And they smote the men that were at the door of the house
both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
The angels pull Lot inside the house, close the door, and blind the Sodomites.
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:
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.
The angels said to Lot
Gather your family and belongs and leave Sodom, because we are going to destroy it.
The cry of Sodom is very loud before God's face, so God has sent us to destroy it.
Who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah?
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.
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.
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.
Lot went to his sons-in-law  and said,
Get out of here! God is going to destroy this city.
But they thought he joking.
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.
One of the angels said to Lot (and his family?),
Run for your life! Don't look behind you.
Escape to the mountain or you'll be consumed.
And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
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:
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.
I can't escape the the mountain. Something bad will happen to me and I'll die.
Let me flee to the little city that is nearby.  So I can live.
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
Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come
thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
The angel said,
Okay. I won't destroy the little city that you're talking about.
Go there. But be quick about it. I can't do anything until you're there.
The sun was risen upon the earth  when Lot entered into Zoar.
So Lot (and his family?) entered Zoar as the sun was rising.
Then the LORD rained
upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants
of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
Lot's wife looks back, and God turns her into salt
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before
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
Abraham got up early that morning and looked toward Sodom, and he saw the smoke of the burning city.
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.
While God was destoying Sodom and Gomorrah, he remembered Abraham [6
] and saved Lot.
Lot gets drunk and impregnates his daughters
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.
After God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot and his daughters left Zoar, because Lot was
afraid to live there. So he lived in a cave with his two daughters.
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:
Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve
seed of our father.
After they arrived, the older daughter said to her sister,
Dad is old, but there's no other men to have sex with.
Let's get him drunk to preserve his seed.
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.
So they got Lot drunk that night, and the older daughter had sex with him.
Lot was so drunk he didn't know what was going on.
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
The next day, the older daughter said to the younger,
I had sex last night with Dad.
Let's get him drunk again tonight and you can do it (so we can preserve his seed).
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.
So they got Lot drunk again, and the younger daughter had sex with him.
Lot was so drunk he didn't know what was happening.
Thus were both the
daughters of Lot with child by their father.
And the first born
bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the
Moabites unto this day.
And the younger, she
also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of
the children of Ammon unto this day.
- Lot refuses to give up his angels to the perverted mob,
offering his two "virgin
daughters" instead. He tells the bunch of angel rapers to "do unto them (his daughters) as is good in
This is the same man that is called "just" and "righteous" in 2 Peter 2:7-8.
- His daughters were
married, and therefore not likely to be virgins, as he said in verse 8. But, hey, it was a
"just and righteous" lie, intended to make his daughters more attractive to the sex-crazed mob.
- The little city that Lot wanted to flee to was supposedly named "Zoar" after this.
Later when Lot's daughters seduce their drunken father, they said they were doing it because
there there were no other men left on earth whom God hadn't killed. And yet they went to the city of Zoar to escape the
destruction of Sodom. Wheren't there any men there?
Did Lot's daughters think God had killed every man except Lot?
- The sun was risen upon the earth.
This verses implies that the sun moves, not the earth.
- God kills everyone (men, women, children,
infants, newborns) in Sodom and Gomorrah by
raining "fire and brimstone from the Lord out of heaven." Well, almost
everyone -- he spares the "just and righteous" Lot
and his family.
- Is this a reference to Abraham's attempt to talk God out of killing everyone in Sodom?
- Why was Lot afraid to live in Zoar? The angel told him that he'd be safe there.
- Lot apparently was so drunk that he didn't know who he was having sex with -- which is
not unusual in Genesis.
- The story of Lot and his daughters is obviously made up to justify the later mistreatment of the Moabites and
Ammonites by the Israelites.
