Genesis 19:8 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Look, I have two daughters who have never been intimate with[a] a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do to them whatever you please.[b] Only don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection[c] of my roof.”[d]


  1. Genesis 19:8 tn Heb “who have not known.” Here this expression is a euphemism for sexual relations.
  2. Genesis 19:8 tn Heb “according to what is good in your eyes.”
  3. Genesis 19:8 tn Heb “shadow.”
  4. Genesis 19:8 sn This chapter portrays Lot as a hypocrite. He is well aware of the way the men live in his city and is apparently comfortable in the midst of it. But when confronted by the angels, he finally draws the line. But he is nevertheless willing to sacrifice his daughters’ virginity to protect his guests. His opposition to the crowds leads to his rejection as a foreigner by those with whom he had chosen to live. The one who attempted to rescue his visitors ends up having to be rescued by them.
