The two angels came to Sodom at evening; and Lot invited them to stay the night in his house. He fed them. Before they lay down for the night, the men of Sodom, both young and old, surrounded the house. They demanded that the two visitors be delivered to them, that they might “know” them.
Lot went out to entreat them not to do this wickedness. He even offered his virgin daughters, but these men were not interested in women.
The crowd pressed upon Lot, and the angels put forth their hand and pulled Lot into the house and shut to the door.
And they smote the men of Sodom with blindness, so that they grew tired of trying to find the door.
