Genesis 19:36-38 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

36 Thus the two daughters of Lot became pregnant by their father. 37 The firstborn gave birth to a son whom she named Moab, saying, “From my father.”[a] He is the ancestor of the Moabites of today. 38 The younger one, too, gave birth to a son, and she named him Ammon, saying, “The son of my kin.”[b] He is the ancestor of the Ammonites of today.


  1. 19:37 From my father: in Hebrew, me’abi, similar in sound to the name “Moab.”
  2. 19:38 The son of my kin: in Hebrew, ben-ammi, similar in sound to the name “Ammonites.”
