20 Behold this city is near for me to escape thither, which is a small one, and there shall I be preserved, is it not little? and my soul shall live because of thee. 21 And he said to him, Behold, I have had respect to thee also about this thing, that I should not overthrow the city about which thou hast spoken. 22 Hasten therefore to escape thither, for I shall not be able to do anything until thou art come thither; therefore he called the name of that city, Segor. 23 The sun was risen upon the earth, when Lot entered into Segor. 24 And the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrha brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven. 25 And he overthrew these cities, and all the country round about, and all that dwelt in the cities, and the plants springing out of the ground. 26 And his wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. 27 And Abraam rose up early to go to the place, where he had stood before the Lord. 28 And he looked towards Sodom and Gomorrha, and towards the surrounding country, and saw, and behold a flame went up from the earth, as the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass that when God destroyed all the cities of the region round about, God remembered Abraam, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when the Lord overthrew those cities in which Lot dwelt.

20 ἰδοὺ ἡ πόλις αὕτη ἐγγὺς τοῦ καταφυγεῖν με ἐκεῖ, ἥ ἐστι μικρά, καὶ ἐκεῖ διασωθήσομαι· οὐ μικρά ἐστι; καὶ ζήσεται ἡ ψυχή μου ἕνεκέν σου. 21 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ἰδοὺ ἐθαύμασά σου τὸ πρόσωπον καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ρήματι τούτῳ τοῦ μὴ καταστρέψαι τὴν πόλιν, περὶ ἧς ἐλάλησας· 22 σπεῦσον οὖν τοῦ σωθῆναι ἐκεῖ· οὐ γὰρ δυνήσομαι ποιῆσαι πρᾶγμα, ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν σε ἐκεῖ. διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τῆς πόλεως ἐκείνης Σηγώρ. 23 ὁ ἥλιος ἐξῆλθεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, καὶ Λὼτ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς Σηγώρ, 24 καὶ Κύριος ἔβρεξεν ἐπὶ Σόδομα καὶ Γόμορρα θεῖον, καὶ πῦρ παρὰ Κυρίου ἐξ οὐρανοῦ 25 καὶ κατέστρεψε τὰς πόλεις ταύτας καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν περίχωρον καὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν ταῖς πόλεσι καὶ τὰ ἀνατέλλοντα ἐκ τῆς γῆς. 26 καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω καὶ ἐγένετο στήλη ἁλός. 27 ῎Ωρθρισε δὲ ῾Αβραὰμ τῷ πρωῒ εἰς τὸν τόπον, οὗ εἱστήκει ἐναντίον Κυρίου. 28 καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον Σοδόμων καὶ Γομόρρας καὶ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τῆς περιχώρου καὶ εἶδε, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνέβαινε φλὸξ ἐκ τῆς γῆς, ὡσεὶ ἀτμὶς καμίνου. 29 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐκτρίψαι Κύριον πάσας τὰς πόλεις τῆς περιοίκου, ἐμνήσθη ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ἐξαπέστειλε τὸν Λὼτ ἐκ μέσου τῆς καταστροφῆς, ἐν τῷ καταστρέψαι Κύριον τὰς πόλεις, ἐν αἷς κατῴκει ἐν αὐταῖς Λώτ.
