He said,“Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!”
But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.
With the coming of dawn,
the angels urged Lot, saying,“Hurry! Take
your wife and your two daughters who are here,
or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”
When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand
and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely
out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them.
and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”
But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please!
Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life.
But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die.
Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and
it is small. Let me flee to it—it is very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared.”
He said to him,“Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of.
But flee there quickly,
because I cannot do
anything until you reach it.”(That is why the town was called Zoar. )
