1 When Lot’s two sons-in-law saw him take the strangers into his home, they went straightway unto the magistrates of the city for it was unlawful in the city of Seḏom to entertain a stranger in your home.

2 Wherefore, the people of Seḏom surrounded Lot’s house, both young and old, all the people of the city.

3 And one of them called to Lot and said, Where are the men whom thou tookest into thine house tonight?

4 Behold, thou knowest that it is contrary to our laws to thus entertain strangers.

5 Nevertheless, we will forgive thee for thou art a mighty prince among us; therefore, bring forth the men unto us that we may lie with them and do unto them according to all the desires of our hearts.

6 But Lot went out the door to the front of his house and securing the door behind him, he confronted the Seḏomites.

7 And Lot said to them, I pray you, my brethren, do not these wicked things, for it is contrary to the Torah of the Most High Elohim who is Sovereign over all, to force anyone to lie with another.

8 Repent now, therefore, that the wrath of the Most High Elohim fall not upon you and ye with your city be destroyed.

9 But they were angry with Lot and they cried unto him, Stand away from the door lest we take thee also.

10 Thou hast come in among us and partaken of the good of our land and we have treated thee with honor although thou wast a stranger. Dost thou now make thyself a judge over us?

11 And their anger increased against Lot and they said unto him, Behold, we will deal worse with thee than with them.

12 Wherefore, we shall take thee and thy daughters and the men who have come in unto thee and any others in thine household who shall please us and we will do with you according to all our desires.

13 But Lot replied, Behold now, I have two daughters who have not lain with man.

14 Let me, I pray you, plead with you that ye take them not according to this wickedness and abuse them according to your abominations, for the Most High Elohim will surely destroy this city if ye repent not.

15 Wherefore, ye shall do nothing unto me nor my daughters nor the strangers that are within my gate nor any of my household, for Elohim will smite you in the attempt.

16 And their anger increased yet more against Lot and they came near to break down the door, but the messengers of Elohim who were qodesh men bearing the Power of the Kehunnah after Elohim’s qodesh order, put forth their hands, pulled Lot into the house and shut the door behind him.

17 Then they smote the people of Seḏom with blindness so that they could not find the door.
