Genesis 19
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And two Messengers came to Sadom in the evening, and Lot sat at the gate of Sadom, and Lot saw them and stood to meet them, and he bowed on his face on the ground. 2And he said, “I beg of you my Lords, turn aside to the house of your Servant and stay the night and wash your feet and rise early, go your way.” And they said, “No, we will stay in the street.” 3And Lot urged them greatly, and they turned aside to him and they entered his house, and he made them drink, and he baked unleavened bread for them and they ate. 4And yet they did not sleep, and the men of the city, the men of Sadom, surrounded the house, the young men to the old men, and all the people from its limits. 5And they called Lot and they said to him, “Where are the men who came to you in the night? Bring them out to us and we will know them.” 6And Lot went out to them at the door and he shut the door after him. 7And Lot said to them, “You shall not do evil, my brothers. 8Behold I have two daughters that not have known a man; I shall bring them out to you, and do to them just as is good in your eyes, only do nothing to these men, for they have entered the shade of my city.” 9And they said, “Get back!” and they said, “One came to dwell with us and behold, the Judge judges us; now we will do worse to you than to them”, and Lot fought with the men greatly, and they approached to break down the door. 10And the men stretched out their hands and brought Lot to them to the house and they locked the door. 11And they struck the men who were at the door of the house with hallucinations, from the little ones and unto the great, and they labored to find the door.

12And the men said to Lot, “What are you doing here? Bring out your inlaws and your sons and your daughters from this place, and all that you have in the city. 13For we are destroying this region, because their bellowing has come up before LORD JEHOVAH, and LORD JEHOVAH sent us for its destruction.” 14And Lot went out and he spoke with his sonsinlaw, takers of his daughters, and he said to them, “Get up, go out from this place, because LORD JEHOVAH is destroying it” and it was as if he was joking in the eyes of his sonsinlaw.

15And when dawn came up, the Messengers urged Lot, and they were saying to him, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who have been found, lest you be devoured in the sins of the city.” 16And Lot delayed, and the Messengers seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hand of his two daughters, because LORD JEHOVAH showed pity upon him, and they brought him out and they set him outside of the city. 17And when they brought them outside, they were saying to him, “Save yourself; do not turn behind you and do not stay in all the valleys; escape to the mountain lest you be destroyed.” 18And Lot said to them, “I beg of you, my Lords. 19Behold, your Servant has found mercy in your eyes and your kindness is abundant which you have served with me to save my life, and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest evil will overtake me and I would die. 20Behold this city is near to flee there and it is small. I may escape there; behold it is small, and my soul will live.” 21And he said to him, “Behold, I have accepted your person also in this response, so that I shall not overturn the city of which you have spoken. 22Escape there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you enter there”; because of this, he called the name of the city, Tsaar.

23The sun came out over the land and Lot entered Tsaar.

24And LORD JEHOVAH sent down on Sadom and upon Amora brimstone and fire from before LORD JEHOVAH from Heaven. 25And he overturned these villages and all the plain and all dwellers of the land and the vegetation of the land.

26And his wife turned from behind him and she became a pillar of salt.

27And Abraham came early at dawn to the region where he had stood there before LORD JEHOVAH. 28And he gazed at the face of Sadom and Amora and at the face of all the land of the plain, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land went up like the smoke of a furnace.

29And it was that when God destroyed the cities of the plain, God remembered Abraham, and he sent Lot from within the upheaval, when He overturned the cities where Lot had dwelt among them.

30And Lot came up from Tsaar and sat down in the mountain, he and his two daughters with him, because he was afraid to sit in Tsaar, and he and his two daughters sat down in a cave. 31And the elder woman said to the younger, “Behold our father is old and there is no man in the earth to come into us according to the way of all the Earth. 32Come, we will give wine to drink to our father, and we will lie with him and we will raise up seed from our father.” 33And they gave wine to drink that night to their father, and the elder woman entered and she lay with her father, and he did not know her lying down or her rising up. 34And it was the next day, and the elder said to the younger, “Behold I slept in the evening with my father; we will give him wine to drink also tonight, and you go in, lie with Him, and we will raise up seed from our father.” 35And they gave wine to drink also that night to their father, and the younger entered and she lay with him, and he did know her lying down or her rising up. 36And the two daughters of Lot conceived from their father. 37And the elder woman bore a son and she called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites until today. 38And the younger also gave birth to a son, and she called his name, Bar Ammi; he is the father of the children of Amon until today.
