Context Readings

The Rescue Of Lot From Sodom

3 But Lot kept urging them strongly, so they turned aside and entered his house. He prepared a festival and baked unleavened flat bread for them, and they ate. 4 Before they could lie down, all the men of Sodom and its outskirts, both young and old, surrounded the house. 5 They called out to Lot and asked, "Where are the men who came to visit you tonight? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!"
