创世记 19:1-38

上帝毁灭所多玛和蛾摩拉

1那两个天使在黄昏的时候来到所多玛罗得正坐在城门口,看见他们,便起来迎接,俯伏在地上说: 2“我主啊,请到仆人家洗洗脚,住一夜,明天早上再继续赶路吧!”他们说:“不,我们要在街上过夜。” 3罗得执意邀请他们,他们便答应到他家里作客。罗得设宴款待他们,烤无酵饼给他们吃。 4他们正准备就寝的时候,所多玛城的男人从老到少全都出来,团团围住罗得的房子, 5罗得大喊大叫:“今天晚上到你家中作客的人在哪里?把他们交出来,我们要跟他们性交!” 6罗得走出来,关上门,到众人面前, 7对他们说:“各位弟兄,请不要做这种邪恶的事! 8我有两个女儿,还是处女,我愿意把她们交出来任凭你们处置,只是请你们不要侮辱这两个人,他们是我家里的客人。” 9他们对罗得说:“走开!”又说:“这个寄居的人竟当起审判官来啦!现在我们要用更狠的手段对付你。”众人便推挤罗得,想要破门而入。 10那两位天使伸手把罗得拉进屋里,关上了门, 11并让门外的人,不论老少都眼目昏花,摸来摸去也找不着罗得家的门。

12天使对罗得说:“你还有什么亲人住在这里?你要带儿女、女婿和城里其他亲人离开这里, 13因为我们就要毁灭这城了。耶和华已经听见控诉这罪恶之城的声音,祂差遣我们来毁灭这城。” 14罗得听了就去通知他女儿的未婚夫说:“快走吧!耶和华要毁灭这城了!”可是他们却以为他是在开玩笑。

15天刚亮的时候,天使便催促罗得说:“起来,带着你的妻子和两个女儿离开,免得所多玛城因罪恶受惩罚的时候,你也一起被毁灭。” 16罗得却犹疑不决,天使便拉着罗得及其妻子和两个女儿的手出去,将他们安置在城外,因为耶和华怜悯他们。 17到了城外,其中一位天使说:“赶快逃!不要回头看,也不要留在平原,要往山上逃,免得你们被毁灭。” 18罗得说:“我主啊,请不要这样。 19仆人蒙你厚爱、施恩相救,但我无法逃到山上,要是这灾难追上我,我就没命了! 20请看,那座城离这里不远,容易跑到,又是座小城,请让我逃到那座小城活命吧!” 21天使回答说:“好吧,我答应你,不毁灭那座小城。 22你赶快逃吧,因为你还没有到那里之前,我不能动手。”从此那城便叫琐珥19:22 琐珥”意思是“小”。

23罗得到达琐珥的时候,太阳已经出来了。 24耶和华从天上把燃烧的硫磺降在所多玛蛾摩拉两地, 25毁灭了这两座城和其中的居民,包括整个平原和地上的植物。 26罗得的妻子跟在后面,她回头一望,就变成了一根盐柱。

27亚伯拉罕清早起来,走到他从前站在耶和华面前的地方, 28所多玛蛾摩拉和整个平原眺望,只见那里浓烟滚滚,好像火窑的烟一样。

29这样,为了亚伯拉罕的缘故,上帝毁灭平原各城的时候,让罗得逃离所住的城市,不致丧命。

罗得与他的女儿

30罗得不敢住在琐珥,便带着两个女儿来到山上,住进一个洞里。 31他的大女儿对妹妹说:“我们的父亲年纪大了,这里又没有男子可以照着世上的习俗娶我们。 32不如我们灌醉父亲,然后跟他睡觉,借着他替我们一家传宗接代吧。” 33于是,那晚她们灌醉了父亲,大女儿进去和父亲睡。她什么时候躺下,什么时候起来,罗得完全不知道。 34第二天,大女儿对妹妹说:“昨天晚上我已经和父亲睡了,今天晚上我们再灌醉他,你可以进去和他睡。这样,我们就可以借着父亲传宗接代。” 35当天晚上,她们又灌醉了罗得,小女儿进去与他睡。她什么时候躺下,什么时候起来,罗得完全不知道。 36这样,罗得的两个女儿都从父亲怀了孕。 37大女儿生了一个儿子,给他取名叫摩押19:37 摩押”意思是“出自父亲”。,他是今天摩押人的祖先。 38小女儿也生了一个儿子,给他取名叫便·亚米19:38 便·亚米”意思是“亲人的儿子”。,他是今天亚扪人的祖先。

King James Version

Genesis 19:1-38

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.

4¶ 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: 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.

12¶ 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: 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.

15¶ 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.19.15 are here: Heb. are found19.15 iniquity: or, punishment 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.

17¶ 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. 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.19.21 thee: Heb. thy face 22Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.19.22 Zoar: that is, Little

23¶ The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.19.23 risen: Heb. gone forth

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.

26¶ But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

27¶ And 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.

29¶ 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.

30¶ 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. 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 firstborn 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 Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
