22 While they were [a]celebrating, behold, (A)the men of the city, certain [b](B)worthless men, surrounded the house, pushing one another at the door; and they spoke to the owner of the house, the old man, saying, “Bring out the man who entered your house that we may [c]have relations with him.” 23 Then the man, the owner of the house, went out to them and said to them, “No, my brothers, please do not act so wickedly. Since this man has come into my house, (C)do not commit this vile sin. 24 (D)Here is my virgin daughter and [d]the man’s concubine. Please let me bring them out, then rape them and do to them [e]whatever you wish. But do not commit this act of vile sin against this man.”
