The Holy Bible - The First Book of Moses: Called Genesis, Chapter 19 (Latin)
1And 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;
2And 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.
3And 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.
4But 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:
5And 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.
6And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8Behold 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.
9And 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.
10But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
11And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
12And 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:
13For 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.
14And 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.
15And 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.
16And 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.
17And 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.
18And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my LORD:
19Behold 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:
20Behold 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.
21And 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 spoken.
22Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
23The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
24Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
26But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
27And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:
28And 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 a furnace.
29And 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.
30And 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.
31And 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:
32Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33And 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.
34And 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 father.
35And 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.
36Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
38And 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.
1veneruntque duo angeli Sodomam vespere sedente Loth in foribus civitatis qui cum vidisset surrexit et ivit obviam eis adoravitque pronus in terra
2et dixit obsecro domini declinate in domum pueri vestri et manete ibi lavate pedes vestros et mane proficiscimini in viam vestram qui dixerunt minime sed in platea manebimus
3conpulit illos oppido ut deverterent ad eum ingressisque domum illius fecit convivium coxit azyma et comederunt
4prius autem quam irent cubitum viri civitatis vallaverunt domum a puero usque ad senem omnis populus simul
5vocaveruntque Loth et dixerunt ei ubi sunt viri qui introierunt ad te nocte educ illos huc ut cognoscamus eos
6egressus ad eos Loth post tergum adcludens ostium ait
7nolite quaeso fratres mei nolite malum hoc facere
8habeo duas filias quae necdum cognoverunt virum educam eas ad vos et abutimini eis sicut placuerit vobis dummodo viris istis nihil faciatis mali quia ingressi sunt sub umbraculum tegminis mei
9at illi dixerunt recede illuc et rursus ingressus es inquiunt ut advena numquid ut iudices te ergo ipsum magis quam hos adfligemus vimque faciebant Loth vehementissime iam prope erat ut refringerent fores
10et ecce miserunt manum viri et introduxerunt ad se Loth cluseruntque ostium
11et eos qui erant foris percusserunt caecitate a minimo usque ad maximum ita ut ostium invenire non possent
12dixerunt autem ad Loth habes hic tuorum quempiam generum aut filios aut filias omnes qui tui sunt educ de urbe hac
13delebimus enim locum istum eo quod increverit clamor eorum coram Domino qui misit nos ut perdamus illos
14egressus itaque Loth locutus est ad generos suos qui accepturi erant filias eius et dixit surgite egredimini de loco isto quia delebit Dominus civitatem hanc et visus est eis quasi ludens loqui
15cumque esset mane cogebant eum angeli dicentes surge et tolle uxorem tuam et duas filias quas habes ne et tu pariter pereas in scelere civitatis
16dissimulante illo adprehenderunt manum eius et manum uxoris ac duarum filiarum eius eo quod parceret Dominus illi
17et eduxerunt eum posueruntque extra civitatem ibi locutus est ad eum salva animam tuam noli respicere post tergum nec stes in omni circa regione sed in monte salvum te fac ne et tu simul pereas
18dixitque Loth ad eos quaeso Domine mi
19quia invenit servus tuus gratiam coram te et magnificasti misericordiam tuam quam fecisti mecum ut salvares animam meam nec possum in monte salvari ne forte adprehendat me malum et moriar
20est civitas haec iuxta ad quam possum fugere parva et salvabor in ea numquid non modica est et vivet anima mea
21dixitque ad eum ecce etiam in hoc suscepi preces tuas ut non subvertam urbem pro qua locutus es
22festina et salvare ibi quia non potero facere quicquam donec ingrediaris illuc idcirco vocatum est nomen urbis illius Segor
23sol egressus est super terram et Loth ingressus est in Segor
24igitur Dominus pluit super Sodomam et Gomorram sulphur et ignem a Domino de caelo
25et subvertit civitates has et omnem circa regionem universos habitatores urbium et cuncta terrae virentia
26respiciensque uxor eius post se versa est in statuam salis
27Abraham autem consurgens mane ubi steterat prius cum Domino
28intuitus est Sodomam et Gomorram et universam terram regionis illius viditque ascendentem favillam de terra quasi fornacis fumum
29cum enim subverteret Deus civitates regionis illius recordatus est Abrahae et liberavit Loth de subversione urbium in quibus habitaverat
30ascenditque Loth de Segor et mansit in monte duae quoque filiae eius cum eo timuerat enim manere in Segor et mansit in spelunca ipse et duae filiae eius
31dixitque maior ad minorem pater noster senex est et nullus virorum remansit in terra qui possit ingredi ad nos iuxta morem universae terrae
32veni inebriemus eum vino dormiamusque cum eo ut servare possimus ex patre nostro semen
33dederunt itaque patri suo bibere vinum nocte illa et ingressa est maior dormivitque cum patre at ille non sensit nec quando accubuit filia nec quando surrexit
34altera quoque die dixit maior 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
35dederunt et illa nocte patri vinum ingressaque minor filia dormivit cum eo et nec tunc quidem sensit quando concubuerit vel quando illa surrexerit
36conceperunt ergo duae filiae Loth de patre suo
37peperitque maior filium et vocavit nomen eius Moab ipse est pater Moabitarum usque in praesentem diem
38minor quoque peperit filium et vocavit nomen eius Ammon id est filius populi mei ipse est pater Ammanitarum usque hodie
