Genesis 19:8-10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Behold now, I have two [a]daughters, which have not known man: them will I bring out now unto you, and do them as seemeth you good: only unto these men do nothing: [b]for therefore are they come under the shadow of my roof.

Then they said, Away hence: and they said, He is come alone as a stranger, and shall he judge and rule? we will now deal worse with thee than with them. So they pressed sore upon Lot himself, and came to break the door.

10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

Genesis 19:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”

“Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door.
