Bible: Gen 19:1-5

The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

19:1 The two angels came to Sodom in the evening while 1  Lot was sitting in the city’s gateway. 2  When Lot saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face toward the ground.

19:2 He said, “Here, my lords, please turn aside to your servant’s house. Stay the night 3  and wash your feet. Then you can be on your way early in the morning.” 4  “No,” they replied, “we’ll spend the night in the town square.” 5 

19:3 But he urged 6  them persistently, so they turned aside with him and entered his house. He prepared a feast for them, including bread baked without yeast, and they ate. 19:4 Before they could lie down to sleep, 7  all the men – both young and old, from every part of the city of Sodom – surrounded the house. 8  19:5 They shouted to Lot, 9 Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so we can have sex 10  with them!
