Disordered in Polyglot

 

But first, holy Grace:   But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.”  
      Mark 10:6-9  
         
         

 

 
 

There is nothing evil on this page, though it is evil which is exclusively discussed herein, an attempt to make some contribution to defeating evil. Little more has been done than to reproduce the warnings of Holy Scripture. And yet this very scripture will be used for evil by some readers and perhaps most. People will wilfully and culpably focus on one evil to distract the attentions of others — and their own consciences — from other evils, including those which are closely akin, just as in the other camp non-homosexual homosexualists like legitimizing homosexual sodomy because of the peceived effects on legitimizing their own sins.

Certainly in our times and maybe in all times the vast majority of people who, in connection with sexual sins, remain unrepentant and refuse God's Grace and reject His Mercy do so in connection with heterosexual sins, abuses of that which is created good. It is simple. There are vastly more non-homosexuals than there are homosexuals. Adultery, fornication, masturbation or any embrace of pornography produce exactly the same result as the abomination which is any deliberate sexual contact between people of the same gender. That effect is separation from God. And if not repented of, with a firm purpose of amendment, the effect is permanent separation from God, is Hell. Have you ever seen any evidence that God is about the business of drawing distinctions among gradations of evil in connection with Ultimate Things, the Eschaton?

And yet sodomy is singled out. It is singled out Biblically as being an abomination. And the Orthodox-Catholic Church teaches that it is one of:

peccata clamantia – The four sins that cry to Heaven for Vengeance

  1. Murder. Cain said to Abel his brother, “Let us go out to the field.” And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” And the Lord said,What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. ..."
    — Genesis 4:8-10 —
  2. Sodomy. The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.
    — Genesis 19:1-7 —
    You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
    — Leviticus 18:22 —
    If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.
    — Leviticus 20:13 —
  3. Oppression of the Poor. In the course of those many days the king of Egypt died. And the people of Israel groaned under their bondage, and cried out for help, and their cry under bondage came up to God.
    — Exodus 2:23 —
  4. Defrauding Workers or Cheating them out of their Just Wages. Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
    — James 5:4 —

Och de två änglarna kommo om aftonen till Sodom, och Lot satt då i Sodoms port. När Lot fick se dem, stod han upp och gick emot dem och föll ned till jorden på sitt ansikte och sade: »I herrar, tagen härbärge i eder tjänares hus och stannen där över natten, och tvån edra fötter; sedan kunnen I i morgon bittida fortsätta eder färd.» De svarade: »Nej, vi vilja stanna på gatan över natten.» Men han bad dem så enträget, att de togo härbärge hos honom och kommo in i hans hus. Och han tillredde en måltid åt dem och bakade osyrat bröd, och de åto. Men innan de hade lagt sig, omringades huset av männen i staden, Sodoms män, både unga och gamla, allt folket, så många de voro. Dessa kallade på Lot och sade till honom: »Var äro de män som hava kommit till dig i natt? För ut de där männen till oss, så att vi kan våldta dem.» Då gick Lot ut till dem i porten och stängde dörren efter sig och sade: »Mina bröder, gören icke så illa.  
  Genesis, Första Mosebok 19:1-7      
 
    Att ligga med en man som man ligger med en kvinna är avskyvärt. (SVL)
Du skall icke ligga hos en man såsom man ligger hos en kvinna; det är en styggelse. (SV1917)
Du skall inte ligga med en man som en man ligger med en kvinna. Det är avskyvärt. (SFB)
     

Leviticus, Tredje Mosebok 18:22

Ladies and Gentlemen of Sweden: Is it possible to interpret any ambiguity into these plain Divine statements? Of course there is not. There is absolutely no language limiting the offense, the crime, the abomination, the evil to pederasty or to some bogus modern theoretical construct of heterosexually oriented men experimenting with homosexuality. Below the Hebrew and the Greek will also be presented. The behavior refered to is ANY deliberate sexual contact of any kind between or among men. There is no exception for those men committed to life-long "monandry".

 
 
Straffet för homosexuella handlingar är döden för båda parter. De har själva dragit det över sig. (SVL)
Om en man ligger hos en annan man såsom man ligger hos en kvinna, så göra de båda en styggelse; de skola straffas med döden, blodskuld låder vid dem. (SV1917)
Om en man ligger med en annan man som en man ligger med en kvinna, begår de en avskyvärd handling. De skall straffas med döden. De bär på blodskuld. (SFB)
 
  Leviticus, Tredje Mosebok 20:13      
 
    Ingen tempeltärna skall finnas bland Israels döttrar, och ingen tempelbolare bland Israels söner. Du skall icke bära skökolön och hundpenningar in i HERRENS, din Guds, hus, till gäldande av något löfte; ty det ena som det andra är en styggelse för HERREN, din Gud. (SV1917)
Det får inte finnas några prostituerade i Israel, vare sig män eller kvinnor. De pengar som förtjänas genom prostitution får inte bäras fram som offer till Herren. Det är en förolämpning mot honom. (SVL)
Ingen tempelprostituerad får finnas varken bland Israels döttrar eller bland Israels söner. Du får inte komma med lönen från kvinnlig eller manlig prostitution till Herrens, din Guds, hus på grund av något löfte, för Herren, din Gud, avskyr bådadera. (SFB)
      Deuteronomy, Femte Mosebok 23:17-18  
 
Men då, om aftonen, kom en gammal man från sitt arbete på fältet, och denne man var från Efraims bergsbygd och bodde såsom främling i Gibea; ty folket där på orten voro benjaminiter. När denne nu lyfte upp sina ögon, fick han se den vägfarande mannen på den öppna platsen i staden. Då sade den gamle mannen: »Vart skall du resa, och varifrån kommer du?» Han svarade honom: »Vi äro på genomresa från Bet-Lehem i Juda till den del av Efraims bergsbygd, som ligger längst uppe; därifrån är jag, och jag har gjort en resa till Bet-Lehem i Juda. Nu är jag på väg till HERRENS hus, men ingen vill här taga emot mig i sitt hus. Jag har både halm och foder åt våra åsnor, så ock bröd och vin åt mig själv och åt din tjänarinna och åt mannen som åtföljer oss, dina tjänare, så att intet fattas oss.» Då sade den gamle mannen: »Frid vare med dig! Men låt mig få sörja för allt som kan fattas dig. Härute på den öppna platsen må du icke stanna över natten.» Därefter förde han honom till sitt hus och fodrade åsnorna. Och sedan de hade tvått sina fötter, åto de och drucko. Under det att de så gjorde sina hjärtan glada, omringades plötsligt huset av männen i staden, onda män, som bultade på dörren; och de sade till den gamle mannen, som rådde om huset: »För hitut den man som har kommit till ditt hus, så att vi få känna honom.» Då gick mannen som rådde om huset ut till dem och sade till dem: »Nej, mina bröder, gören icke så illa. Eftersom nu denne man har kommit in i mitt hus, mån I icke göra en sådan galenskap.  
  Domarboken 19:16-23      
 
    Och Juda gjorde vad ont var i HERRENS ögon; med de synder som de begingo retade de honom långt mer, än deras fäder hade gjort. Ty också de byggde sig offerhöjder och reste stoder och Aseror på alla höga kullar och under alla gröna träd; ja, också tempelbolare funnos i landet. De gjorde efter alla styggelser hos de folk som HERREN hade fördrivit för Israels barn. (SV1917)
Under Rehabeams regering syndade folket i Juda, precis som förhållandet var i Israel. Herren blev därför mycket vred på grund av deras synd, som till och med var värre än deras föräldrars. Man byggde offeraltaren, obelisker och avgudar på höjderna och under alla stora träd. Det fanns till och med manliga tempelprostituerade i landet, och folket i Juda blev lika moraliskt förfallet som de hednafolk Herren hade drivit bort för att bereda dem plats. (SVL)
      1 Kungaboken 14:22-24  
 
Och Asa gjorde vad rätt var i HERRENS ögon, såsom hans fader David hade gjort Han drev ut tempelbolarna ur landet och skaffade bort alla de eländiga avgudabeläten som hans fader hade låtit göra. (SV1917)
Asa gjorde det som var rätt i Herrens ögon, precis som hans förfader David hade gjort. Han drev ut de manliga prostituerade ur landet och rev ner alla de avgudar som hans far hade gjort. (SVL)
 
  1 Kungaboken 15:11-12      
 
    Trettiofem år gammal var Josafat, när han blev konung, och han regerade tjugufem år i Jerusalem. Hans moder hette Asuba, Silhis dotter. Och han vandrade i allt på sin fader Asas väg, utan att vika av ifrån den; han gjorde nämligen vad rätt var i HERRENS ögon. Dock blevo offerhöjderna icke avskaffade, utan folket fortfor att frambära offer och tända offereld på höjderna. Och Josafat höll fred med Israels konung. Vad nu mer är att säga om Josafat och om de bedrifter han utförde och om hans krig, det finnes upptecknat i Juda konungars krönika. Han utrotade ock ur landet de tempelbolare som ännu funnos där, vilka hade lämnats kvar i hans fader Asas tid. (SV1917)
      1 Kungaboken 22:42-47  
 
Då sände konungen åstad män som församlade till honom alla de äldste i Juda och Jerusalem. Och konungen gick upp i HERRENS hus, och alla Juda män och alla Jerusalems invånare följde honom, också prästerna och profeterna, ja, allt folket, ifrån den minste till den störste. Och han läste upp för dem allt vad som stod i förbundsboken, som hade blivit funnen i HERRENS hus Och konungen trädde fram till pelaren och slöt inför HERRENS ansikte det förbundet, att de skulle följa efter HERREN och hålla hans bud, hans vittnesbörd och hans stadgar, av allt hjärta och av all själ, och upprätthålla detta förbunds ord, dem som voro skrivna i denna bok. Och allt folket trädde in i förbundet. Därefter bjöd konungen översteprästen Hilkia och prästerna näst under honom, så ock dem som höllo vakt vid tröskeln, att de skulle föra bort ur HERRENS tempel alla de redskap som voro gjorda åt Baal och Aseran och åt himmelens hela härskara. Och han lät bränna upp dem utanför Jerusalem på Kidrons fält, men askan efter dem lät han föra till Betel. Han avsatte ock de avgudapräster som Juda konungar hade tillsatt, för att tända offereld på offerhöjderna i Juda städer och runt omkring Jerusalem, så ock dem som tände offereld åt Baal, åt solen, åt månen, åt stjärnbilderna och åt himmelens hela härskara. Och han tog Aseran ur HERRENS hus och förde bort den utanför Jerusalem till Kidrons dal, och brände upp den där i Kidrons dal, han stötte sönder den till stoft och kastade stoftet på den allmänna begravningsplatsen. Vidare rev han ned tempelbolarhusen som funnos i HERRENS hus, dem i vilka kvinnor vävde tyg till tält åt Aseran. (SV1917)  
  2 Kungaboken 23:1-7      
 
    Ty Guds vrede uppenbarar sig från himmelen över all ogudaktighet och orättfärdighet hos människor som i orättfärdighet undertrycka sanningen. Vad man kan känna om Gud är nämligen uppenbart bland dem; Gud har ju uppenbarat det för dem. Ty hans osynliga väsen, hans eviga makt och gudomshärlighet hava ända ifrån världens skapelse varit synliga, i det att de kunna förstås genom hans verk. Så äro de då utan ursäkt. Ty fastän de hade lärt känna Gud, prisade och tackade de honom dock icke såsom Gud, utan förföllo till fåfängliga tankar; och så blevo deras oförståndiga hjärtan förmörkade. När de berömde sig av att vara visa, blevo de dårar och bytte bort den oförgänglige Gudens härlighet mot beläten, som voro avbilder av förgängliga människor, ja ock av fåglar och fyrfotadjur och krälande djur. Därför prisgav Gud dem i deras hjärtans begärelser åt orenhet, så att de med varandra skändade sina kroppar. De hade ju bytt bort Guds sanning mot lögn och tagit sig för att dyrka och tjäna det skapade framför Skaparen, honom som är högtlovad i evighet, amen. Fördenskull gav Gud dem till pris åt skamliga lustar: deras kvinnor utbytte det naturliga umgänget mot ett onaturligt; sammalunda övergåvo ock männen det naturliga umgänget med kvinnan och upptändes i lusta till varandra och bedrevo styggelse, man med man. Så fingo de på sig själva uppbära sin villas tillbörliga lön. Och eftersom de icke hade aktat det något värt att taga vara på sin kunskap om Gud, gav Gud dem till pris åt ett ovärdigt sinnelag, till att bedriva otillbörliga ting. Så hava de blivit uppfyllda av allt slags orättfärdighet, ondska, girighet, elakhet; de äro fulla av avund, mordlust, trätlystnad, svek, vrångsinthet; de äro örontasslare, förtalare, styggelser för Gud, våldsverkare, övermodiga, stortaliga, illfundiga, olydiga mot sina föräldrar, oförståndiga, trolösa, utan kärlek till sina egna, utan barmhärtighet mot andra. Och fastän de väl veta vad Gud har stadgat såsom rätt, att nämligen de som handla så förtjäna döden, är det dem icke nog att själva så göra, de giva ock sitt bifall åt andra som handla likaså. (SV1917)
      Romarbrevet 1:18-32  
 
Vet ni inte att de som handlar på det sättet inte har någon del i Guds rike? Bedra inte er själva. Ingen som tillber avgudar, är otrogen i sitt äktenskap eller ägnar sig åt sexuella perversiteter kommer att få någon del i Guds rike. Inte heller tjuvar och rånare, giriga människor, drinkare och förtalare. (SVL)
Veten I då icke att de orättfärdiga icke skola få Guds rike till arvedel? Faren icke vilse. Varken otuktiga människor eller avgudadyrkare eller äktenskapsbrytare, varken de som låta bruka sig till synd mot naturen eller de som själva öva sådan synd, varken tjuvar eller giriga eller drinkare eller smädare eller roffare skola få Guds rike till arvedel. (SV1917)
Vet ni inte att inga orättfärdiga skall få ärva Guds rike? Bedra inte er själva! Varken otuktiga eller avgudadyrkare, varken äktenskapsbrytare eller de som utövar homosexualitet eller de som låter sig utnyttjas för sådant, varken tjuvar eller giriga, varken drinkare, förtalare eller utsugare skall ärva Guds rike. (SFB)
 
  1 Korinthierbrevet 6:9-10      
 
    Din undervisning ska leda fram till den sanna kärlek som kommer av ett rent samvete och en uppriktig tro. Men dessa lärare, som uppträder med sådan självsäkerhet, har förlorat allt detta och ägnar sin tid till att prata strunt. De vill bli berömda som lärare i Moses lag, men de har inte den minsta aning om vad den egentligen betyder. Denna lag är god, när den tillämpas så som Gud har menat. Den skrevs inte i första hand för dem som rättar sig efter den utan för dem som i sin upproriskhet och i sitt förakt för lag och ordning överträder den. Den gäller kriminella och brottslingar, gudsförnekare och lögnare, dem som lever ut sina perversa drifter, mördare och utpressare och alla andra som handlar tvärtemot den sunda läran och de goda nyheterna från Gud som jag bär med mig. (SVL)
Och förmaningens ändamål är kärlek av ett rent hjärta och av ett gott samvete och av en oskrymtad tro. Från dessa stycken hava somliga farit vilse och vänt sin håg till fåfängligt tal -- människor som vilja vara lärare i lagen, fastän de icke förstå ens vad de själva tala, eller vad de ting äro, som de med sådan säkerhet orda om. Men vi veta att lagen är god, om man nämligen brukar den såsom lagen bör brukas, och om man förstår detta, att lagen är till icke för rättfärdiga människor, utan för dem som trotsa lag och myndighet, för ogudaktiga och syndare, oheliga och oandliga människor, fadermördare och modermördare, för mandråpare, för dem som öva otukt och onaturlig vällustsynd, för dem som äro människosäljare, lögnare, menedare eller något annat som strider mot den sunda läran -- detta i enlighet med det evangelium om den salige Gudens härlighet, varmed jag har blivit betrodd. (SV1917)
Vad all förmaning syftar till är kärlek av ett rent hjärta, av ett gott samvete och av en uppriktig tro. Detta mål har somliga förlorat ur sikte och så förfallit till tomt prat. De vill vara lärare i lagen men förstår varken vad de säger eller vad de så säkert uttalar sig om. Men vi vet att lagen är god, om man brukar den rätt och inser att den inte är till för rättfärdiga utan för laglösa och upproriska, gudlösa och syndare, oheliga och oandliga, för dem som misshandlar sin far och mor, för dråpare, för dem som utövar otukt och homosexualitet, för slavhandlare, lögnare, menedare och för alla som står emot den sunda läran - detta enligt det evangelium om den välsignade Gudens härlighet, som har anförtrotts åt mig. (SFB)
      1 Timotheosbrevet 1:5-11  
 
Från Judas, Jesu Kristi tjänare och bror till Jakob.Till de kristna överallt, utvalda av Gud, Fadern, och bevarade genom Jesus Kristus. Välsignelse, frid och kärlek önskar jag er i allt rikare mått. Älskade vänner, jag hade tänkt skriva ner några tankar till er om den frälsning som Gud har gett oss. Men nu känner jag att mitt brev i stället bör bli en uppmaning till er att med all er kraft kämpa för den sanning som Gud en gång för alla har gett till sitt folk. Jag säger detta, eftersom några gudlösa män har smugit sig in bland er och påstår att man när man väl blivit kristen kan handla precis som man vill utan att behöva riskera Guds straff. Det öde som väntar dessa män har för länge sedan fastställts, för de har vänt sig mot vår ende Mästare och Herre, Jesus Kristus. Jag vill påminna er om vad ni redan känner till, nämligen att Herren först räddade ett helt folk ut ur Egyptens land men sedan dödade dem som inte trodde på honom och lydde honom. Jag vill också påminna er om de änglar som en gång var heliga och rena, men frivilligt började leva i synd. Gud har låst in dem i mörker i väntan på domens dag. Och glöm inte Sodom och Gomorra och deras grannstäder, som var fyllda av all slags ondska och där männen hade begär till andra män. De här städerna förstördes genom eld och är på det sättet en ständig påminnelse för oss om att det finns ett helvete, där syndare kommer att få sitt straff. (SVL)
Judas, Jesu Kristi tjänare och Jakobs broder, hälsar de kallade, dem som äro upptagna i Guds, Faderns, kärlek och bevarade åt Jesus Kristus. Barmhärtighet och frid och kärlek föröke sig hos eder. Mina älskade, då jag nu med all iver har tagit mig för att skriva till eder om vår gemensamma frälsning, finner jag det nödigt att i min skrivelse förmana eder att kämpa för den tro som en gång för alla har blivit meddelad åt de heliga. Några människor hava nämligen innästlat sig hos eder -- några om vilka det för länge sedan blev skrivet att de skulle hemfalla under den domen -- ogudaktiga människor, som missbruka vår Guds nåd till lösaktighet och förneka vår ende härskare och herre, Jesus Kristus. Men fastän I redan en gång haven fått kunskap om alltsammans, vill jag påminna eder därom, att Herren, sedan han hade frälst sitt folk ur Egyptens land, efteråt förgjorde dem som icke trodde, så ock därom, att de änglar som icke behöllo sin furstehöghet, utan övergåvo sin boning, hava av honom med eviga bojor blivit förvarade i mörker till den stora dagens dom. Likaså hava ock Sodom och Gomorra med kringliggande städer, vilka på samma sätt som de förra bedrevo otukt och stodo efter annat umgänge än det naturliga, blivit satta till ett varnande exempel, i det att de få lida straff i evig eld. (SV1917)
Från Judas, Jesu Kristi tjänare och Jakobs bror, till dem som är kallade och älskade i Gud, vår Fader, och bevarade i Jesus Kristus. Må barmhärtighet, frid och kärlek i allt rikligare mått komma er till del. Mina älskade, fastän jag är mycket ivrig att skriva till er om vår gemensamma frälsning, finner jag det nödvändigt att skriva till er och uppmana er att fortsätta kampen för den tro som en gång för alla har överlämnats åt de heliga. Ty hos er har det nästlat sig in vissa personer. Om dem är det redan för länge sedan skrivet att de skulle drabbas av domen. Gudlösa som de är förvanskar de vår Guds nåd till försvar för ett liv i utsvävningar och förnekar vår ende Härskare och Herre, Jesus Kristus. Även om ni redan vet allt vill jag påminna er om hur Herren räddade sitt folk ur Egypten och sedan dödade dem som inte trodde. Tänk också på de änglar som inte bevarade sin höga ställning utan övergav sin rätta hemvist. Dem håller han i förvar i mörker med eviga bojor till den stora dagens dom. Så är det med Sodom och Gomorra och städerna däromkring. På samma sätt bedrev de otukt och följde onaturliga begär. De står som ett varnande exempel och får sitt straff i evig eld. (SFB)

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.  
    Genesis 19:1-7  
       
  You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.  
    Leviticus 18:22  
       
  If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.  
    Leviticus 20:13  
       
  There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.  
    Deuteronomy 23:17-18  
       
  Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

  Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.  
   

2 Kings 23:1-8 (in particular 2:Kings 23:7, the balance provided for context;
and see the KJV, which renders "male cult prostitutes" as sodomites:
"And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house
of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.")

 
       
  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.  
    Romans 1:18-32 (in particular Romans 1:24-27)  
       
 

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. (RSV)

Or do you not know that the unrighteous[a] will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,[b] 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (Footnotes: [a] Or wrongdoers; [b] The two Greek terms translated by this phrase refer to the passive and active partners in consensual homosexual acts.) (ESV)

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (Footnote: [a] The words men who have sex with men translate two Greek words that refer to the passive and active participants in homosexual acts.) (NIV)

Don’t you know that people who are unjust won’t inherit God’s kingdom? Don’t be deceived. Those who are sexually immoral, those who worship false gods, adulterers, both participants in same-sex intercourse,[a] 10 thieves, the greedy, drunks, abusive people, and swindlers won’t inherit God’s kingdom. (Footnote: [a] Or submissive and dominant male sexual partners) (CEB)

 
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10  
       
 

whereas the aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith. 6 Certain persons by swerving from these have wandered away into vain discussion, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make assertions. 8 Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 immoral persons, sodomites, kidnapers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 in accordance with the glorious gospel of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted. (RSV)

The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions. 8 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10 the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound[b] doctrine, 11 in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted. (ESV)

The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Some have departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk. 7 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm. 8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me. (NIV)

The goal of instruction is love from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. 6 Because they missed this goal, some people have been distracted by talk that doesn’t mean anything. 7 They want to be teachers of Law without understanding either what they are saying or what they are talking about with such confidence. 8 Now we know that the Law is good if used appropriately. 9 We understand this: the Law isn’t established for a righteous person but for people who live without laws and without obeying any authority. They are the ungodly and the sinners. They are people who are not spiritual, and nothing is sacred to them. They kill their fathers and mothers, and murder others. 10 They are people who are sexually unfaithful, and people who have intercourse with the same sex. They are kidnappers, liars, individuals who give false testimonies in court, and those who do anything else that is opposed to sound teaching. 11 Sound teaching agrees with the glorious gospel of the blessed God that has been trusted to me. (CEB)

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (RSV)

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day— 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (ESV)

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James, To those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. 3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. 4 For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. 5 Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (NIV)

Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and brother of James. To those who are called, loved by God the Father and kept safe by Jesus Christ.2 May you have more and more mercy, peace, and love. 3 Dear friends, I wanted very much to write to you concerning the salvation we share. Instead, I must write to urge you to fight for the faith delivered once and for all to God’s holy people. 4 Godless people have slipped in among you. They turn the grace of our God into unrestrained immorality and deny our only master and Lord, Jesus Christ. Judgment was passed against them a long time ago. 5 I want to remind you of something you already know very well. The Lord, who once saved a people out of Egypt, later destroyed those who didn’t maintain their faith. 6 I remind you too of the angels who didn’t keep their position of authority but deserted their own home. The Lord has kept them in eternal chains in the underworld until the judgment of the great day. 7 In the same way, Sodom and Gomorrah and neighboring towns practiced immoral sexual relations and pursued other sexual urges. By undergoing the punishment of eternal fire, they serve as a warning. (CEB)

  И пришли те два Ангела в Содом вечером, когда Лот сидел у ворот Содома. Лот увидел, и встал, чтобы встретить их, и поклонился лицем до земли 2 и сказал: государи мои! зайдите в дом раба вашего и ночуйте, и умойте ноги ваши, и встаньте поутру и пойдете в путь свой. Но они сказали: нет, мы ночуем на улице. 3 Он же сильно упрашивал их; и они пошли к нему и пришли в дом его. Он сделал им угощение и испек пресные хлебы, и они ели. 4 Еще не легли они спать, как городские жители, Содомляне, от молодого до старого, весь народ со [всех] концов [города], окружили дом 5 и вызвали Лота и говорили ему: где люди, пришедшие к тебе на ночь? выведи их к нам; мы познаем их. 6 Лот вышел к ним ко входу, и запер за собою дверь, 7 и сказал: братья мои, не делайте зла.

  Если кто ляжет с мужчиною, как с женщиною, то оба они сделали мерзость: да будут преданы смерти, кровь их на них.

  Не должно быть блудницы из дочерей Израилевых и не должно быть блудника из сынов Израилевых. 18 Не вноси платы блудницы и цены пса в дом Господа Бога твоего ни по какому обету, ибо то и другое есть мерзость пред Господом Богом твоим.  
    Второзаконие 23:17-18  
       
  И вот, идет один старик с работы своей с поля вечером; он родом был с горы Ефремовой и жил в Гиве. Жители же места сего были сыны Вениаминовы. 17 Он, подняв глаза свои, увидел прохожего на улице городской. И сказал старик: куда идешь? и откуда ты пришел? 18 Он сказал ему: мы идем из Вифлеема Иудейского к горе Ефремовой, откуда я; я ходил в Вифлеем Иудейский, а теперь иду к дому Господа; и никто не приглашает меня в дом; 19 у нас есть и солома и корм для ослов наших; также хлеб и вино для меня и для рабы твоей и для сего слуги есть у рабов твоих; ни в чем нет недостатка. 20 Старик сказал ему: будь спокоен: весь недостаток твой на мне, только не ночуй на улице. 21 И ввел его в дом свой и дал корму ослам [его], а сами они омыли ноги свои и ели и пили. 22 Тогда как они развеселили сердца свои, вот, жители города, люди развратные, окружили дом, стучались в двери и говорили старику, хозяину дома: выведи человека, вошедшего в дом твой, мы познаем его. 23 Хозяин дома вышел к ним и сказал им: нет, братья мои, не делайте зла, когда человек сей вошел в дом мой, не делайте этого безумия.  
    Книга Судей 19:16-23  
       
  И делал Иуда неугодное пред очами Господа, и раздражали Его более всего того, что сделали отцы их своими грехами, какими они грешили. 23 И устроили они у себя высоты и статуи и капища на всяком высоком холме и под всяким тенистым деревом. 24 И блудники были также в этой земле и делали все мерзости тех народов, которых Господь прогнал от лица сынов Израилевых.  
    3-я Царств 14:22-24  
       
  Аса делал угодное пред очами Господа, как Давид, отец его. 12 Он изгнал блудников из земли и отверг всех идолов, которых сделали отцы его.

  Тридцати пяти лет был Иосафат, когда воцарился, и двадцать пять лет царствовал в Иерусалиме. Имя матери его Азува, дочь Салаиля. 43 Он ходил во всем путем отца своего Асы, не сходил с него, делая угодное пред очами Господними. Только высоты не были отменены; народ еще совершал жертвы и курения на высотах. 44 Иосафат заключил мир с царем Израильским. 45 Прочие дела Иосафата и подвиги его, какие он совершил, и как он воевал, описаны в летописи царей Иудейских. 46 И остатки блудников, которые остались во дни отца его Асы, он истребил с земли.  
    3-я Царств 22:42-46  
       
  И послал царь, и собрали к нему всех старейшин Иуды и Иерусалима. 2 И пошел царь в дом Господень, и все Иудеи, и все жители Иерусалима с ним, и священники, и пророки, и весь народ, от малого до большого, и прочел вслух их все слова книги завета, найденной в доме Господнем. 3 Потом стал царь на возвышенное место и заключил пред лицем Господним завет--последовать Господу и соблюдать заповеди Его и откровения Его и уставы Его от всего сердца и от всей души, чтобы выполнить слова завета сего, написанные в книге сей. И весь народ вступил в завет. 4 И повелел царь Хелкии первосвященнику и вторым священникам и стоящим на страже у порога вынести из храма Господня все вещи, сделанные для Ваала и для Астарты и для всего воинства небесного, и сжег их за Иерусалимом в долине Кедрон, и [велел] прах их отнести в Вефиль. 5 И отставил жрецов, которых поставили цари Иудейские, чтобы совершать курения на высотах в городах Иудейских и окрестностях Иерусалима, --и которые кадили Ваалу, солнцу, и луне, и созвездиям, и всему воинству небесному; 6 и вынес Астарту из дома Господня за Иерусалим к потоку Кедрону, и сжег ее у потока Кедрона, и истер ее в прах, и бросил прах ее на кладбище общенародное; 7 и разрушил домы блудилищные, которые [были] при храме Господнем, где женщины ткали одежды для Астарты; 8 и вывел всех жрецов из городов Иудейских, и осквернил высоты, на которых совершали курения жрецы, от Гевы до Вирсавии, и разрушил высоты [пред] воротами, --ту, которая у входа в ворота Иисуса градоначальника, и ту, которая на левой стороне у городских ворот.

  Ибо открывается гнев Божий с неба на всякое нечестие и неправду человеков, подавляющих истину неправдою. 19 Ибо, что можно знать о Боге, явно для них, потому что Бог явил им. 20 Ибо невидимое Его, вечная сила Его и Божество, от создания мира через рассматривание творений видимы, так что они безответны. 21 Но как они, познав Бога, не прославили Его, как Бога, и не возблагодарили, но осуетились в умствованиях своих, и омрачилось несмысленное их сердце; 22 называя себя мудрыми, обезумели, 23 и славу нетленного Бога изменили в образ, подобный тленному человеку, и птицам, и четвероногим, и пресмыкающимся, -- 24 то и предал их Бог в похотях сердец их нечистоте, так что они сквернили сами свои тела. 25 Они заменили истину Божию ложью, и поклонялись, и служили твари вместо Творца, Который благословен во веки, аминь. 26 Потому предал их Бог постыдным страстям: женщины их заменили естественное употребление противоестественным; 27 подобно и мужчины, оставив естественное употребление женского пола, разжигались похотью друг на друга, мужчины на мужчинах делая срам и получая в самих себе должное возмездие за свое заблуждение. 28 И как они не заботились иметь Бога в разуме, то предал их Бог превратному уму--делать непотребства, 29 так что они исполнены всякой неправды, блуда, лукавства, корыстолюбия, злобы, исполнены зависти, убийства, распрей, обмана, злонравия, 30 злоречивы, клеветники, богоненавистники, обидчики, самохвалы, горды, изобретательны на зло, непослушны родителям, 31 безрассудны, вероломны, нелюбовны, непримиримы, немилостивы. 32 Они знают праведный [суд] Божий, что делающие такие [дела] достойны смерти; однако не только [их] делают, но и делающих одобряют.

Цель же увещания есть любовь от чистого сердца и доброй совести и нелицемерной веры, 6 от чего отступив, некоторые уклонились в пустословие, 7 желая быть законоучителями, но не разумея ни того, о чем говорят, ни того, что утверждают. 8 А мы знаем, что закон добр, если кто законно употребляет его, 9 зная, что закон положен не для праведника, но для беззаконных и непокоривых, нечестивых и грешников, развратных и оскверненных, для оскорбителей отца и матери, для человекоубийц, 10 для блудников, мужеложников, человекохищников, (клеветников, скотоложников,) лжецов, клятвопреступников, и для всего, что противно здравому учению, 11 по славному благовестию блаженного Бога, которое мне вверено.

Иуда, раб Иисуса Христа, брат Иакова, призванным, которые освящены Богом Отцем и сохранены Иисусом Христом: 2 милость вам и мир и любовь да умножатся. 3 Возлюбленные! имея все усердие писать вам об общем спасении, я почел за нужное написать вам увещание--подвизаться за веру, однажды преданную святым. 4 Ибо вкрались некоторые люди, издревле предназначенные к сему осуждению, нечестивые, обращающие благодать Бога нашего в [повод к] распутству и отвергающиеся единого Владыки Бога и Господа нашего Иисуса Христа. 5 Я хочу напомнить вам, уже знающим это, что Господь, избавив народ из земли Египетской, потом неверовавших погубил, 6 и ангелов, не сохранивших своего достоинства, но оставивших свое жилище, соблюдает в вечных узах, под мраком, на суд великого дня. 7 Как Содом и Гоморра и окрестные города, подобно им блудодействовавшие и ходившие за иною плотию, подвергшись казни огня вечного, поставлены в пример.

  Die beiden Engel kamen am Abend nach Sodom. Lot saß im Stadttor von Sodom. Als er sie sah, erhob er sich, trat auf sie zu, warf sich mit dem Gesicht zur Erde nieder und sagte: Meine Herren, kehrt doch im Haus eures Knechtes ein, bleibt über Nacht und wascht euch die Füße! Am Morgen könnt ihr euren Weg fortsetzen. Nein, sagten sie, wir wollen im Freien übernachten. Er redete ihnen aber so lange zu, bis sie mitgingen und bei ihm einkehrten. Er bereitete ihnen ein Mahl, ließ ungesäuerte Brote backen und sie aßen. Sie waren noch nicht schlafen gegangen, da umstellten die Einwohner der Stadt das Haus, die Männer von Sodom, Jung und Alt, alles Volk von weit und breit. Sie riefen nach Lot und fragten ihn: Wo sind die Männer, die heute Abend zu dir gekommen sind? Heraus mit ihnen, wir wollen mit ihnen verkehren. Da ging Lot zu ihnen hinaus vor die Tür, schloss sie hinter sich zu und sagte: Aber meine Brüder, begeht doch nicht ein solches Verbrechen!

  Du sollst bei keiner Mannsperson liegen wie beim Weib; denn das ist ein Gräuel.

  Schläft einer mit einem Mann, wie man mit einer Frau schläft, dann haben sie eine Gräueltat begangen; beide werden mit dem Tod bestraft; ihr Blut soll auf sie kommen.  
    3 Mose, das Buch Levitikus 20:13  
       
  Unter den Töchtern Israels soll keine Hure und unter den Söhnen Israels kein Hurer sein. 18 Du sollst keinen Hurenlohn noch Hundegeld in das Haus des Herrn, deines Gottes, bringen für irgend ein Gelübde; denn beides ist dem Herrn, deinem Gott, ein Greuel.u shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.

  Schließlich kam ein alter Mann am Abend von seiner Arbeit auf dem Feld. Der Mann stammte aus dem Gebirge Efraim und lebte als Fremder in Gibea; die Einwohner des Ortes waren Benjaminiter. 17 Als der alte Mann aufsah, erblickte er den Wanderer auf dem Platz der Stadt und fragte ihn: Woher kommst du und wohin gehst du? 18 Er antwortete ihm: Wir sind auf der Durchreise von Betlehem in Juda zum entlegensten Teil des Gebirges Efraim. Von dort komme ich; ich war nach Betlehem in Juda gegangen und bin nun auf dem Weg nach Hause. Aber hier findet sich niemand, der mich in sein Haus aufnimmt, 19 obwohl wir alles dabeihaben, Stroh und Futter für unsere Esel und auch Brot und Wein für mich, deine Magd und den Knecht, der bei deinem Diener ist. Es fehlt also an nichts. 20 Der alte Mann entgegnete: Sei mir willkommen! Was dir fehlt, das lass nur meine Sorge sein; auf dem Platz jedenfalls darfst du nicht übernachten. 21 Und er führte ihn in sein Haus und schüttete den Eseln Futter vor. Sie wuschen sich die Füße und aßen und tranken. 22 Während sie sich's nun wohl sein ließen, umringten plötzlich einige Männer aus der Stadt, übles Gesindel, das Haus, schlugen an die Tür und sagten zu dem alten Mann, dem Besitzer des Hauses: Bring den Mann heraus, der in dein Haus gekommen ist; wir wollen unseren Mutwillen mit ihm treiben. 23 Der Besitzer des Hauses ging zu ihnen hinaus und sagte zu ihnen: Nein, meine Brüder, so etwas Schlimmes dürft ihr nicht tun. Dieser Mann ist als Gast in mein Haus gekommen; darum dürft ihr keine solche Schandtat begehen.

  Und Juda tat, was dem Herrn übel gefiel, und sie reizten ihn zum Eifer durch ihre Sünden, welche sie taten, mehr als alles, was ihre Väter getan hatten. 23 Denn sie bauten auch Höhen und Säulen und Ascheren auf allen hohen Hügeln und unter allen grünen Bäumen. 24 Und es waren auch Schandbuben im Lande; die taten nach allen Gräuel der Heiden, die der Herr vor den Kindern Israel vertrieben hatte.  
    1 Könige 14:22-24  
       
  Und Asa tat, was dem Herrn wohlgefiel, wie sein Vater David. 12 Denn er schaffte die Schandbuben aus dem Lande und entfernte alle schändlichen Götzen, die seine Väter gemacht hatten.

  Und Josaphat war fünfunddreißig Jahre alt, als er König ward, und regierte fünfundzwanzig Jahre lang zu Jerusalem. Und seine Mutter hieß Asuba, eine Tochter Silhis. 43 Und er wandelte durchaus in den Wegen seines Vaters Asa und wich nicht davon, indem er tat, was dem Herrn wohlgefiel. 44 Doch kamen die Höhen nicht weg; denn das Volk opferte und räucherte noch auf den Höhen. 45 Und Josaphat hatte Frieden mit dem König von Israel. 46 Was aber mehr von Josaphat zu sagen ist, und seine Tapferkeit, die er bewiesen, und wie er gestritten hat, ist das nicht aufgezeichnet in der Chronik der Könige von Juda?

  Da sandte der König hin und ließ alle Ältesten von Juda und Jerusalem zu sich versammeln. 2 Und der König ging hinauf in das Haus des Herrn, und alle Männer von Juda und alle Einwohner von Jerusalem mit ihm, auch die Priester und Propheten und alles Volk, klein und groß, und man las vor ihren Ohren alle Worte des Bundesbuches, das man im Hause des Herrn gefunden hatte. 3 Der König aber trat an die Säule und machte einen Bund vor dem Herrn, dem Herrn nachzuwandeln und seine Gebote und Zeugnisse und Satzungen von ganzem Herzen und von ganzer Seele zu beobachten, die Worte dieses Bundes, welche in diesem Buche geschrieben standen, auszuführen. Und das ganze Volk trat in den Bund. 4 Und der König gebot dem Hohenpriester Hilkia und den Priestern der zweiten Ordnung und den Hütern der Schwelle, daß sie aus dem Tempel des Herrn alle Geräte entfernen sollten, die man dem Baal und der Aschera und dem ganzen Heer des Himmels gemacht hatte; und er verbrannte sie draußen vor Jerusalem, auf den Feldern des Kidron, und trug ihren Staub nach Bethel. 5 Und er setzte die Götzenpriester ab, welche die Könige von Juda eingesetzt hatten und die auf den Höhen in den Städten Judas und um Jerusalem her räucherten; auch die, welche dem Baal, der Sonne und dem Mond und den Gestirnen und dem ganzen Heer des Himmels räucherten. 6 Er ließ auch die Aschera aus dem Hause des Herrn hinausführen vor Jerusalem, an den Bach Kidron, und verbrannte sie beim Bach Kidron und machte sie zu Staub und warf ihren Staub auf die Gräber der gemeinen Leute. 7 Und er brach die Häuser der Buhler ab, die am Hause des Herrn waren, darin die Weiber für die Aschera Zelte wirkten. 8 Auch ließ er alle Priester aus den Städten kommen und verunreinigte die Höhen, wo die Priester geräuchert hatten, von Geba an bis gen Beerseba; und er brach die Höhen der Tore ab, die am Eingang des Tores Josuas, des Stadtobersten, waren, zur Linken, wenn man zum Stadttor kommt.  
   

2 Könige 23:1-8 (Siehe insbesondere 2 Könige 23:7. Die Waage ist für Rahmen vorgesehen.)

 
       
  Es offenbart sich nämlich Gottes Zorn vom Himmel her über alle Gottlosigkeit und Ungerechtigkeit der Menschen, welche die Wahrheit durch Ungerechtigkeit aufhalten, 19 weil das von Gott Erkennbare unter ihnen offenbar ist, da Gott es ihnen geoffenbart hat; 20 denn sein unsichtbares Wesen, das ist seine ewige Kraft und Gottheit, wird seit Erschaffung der Welt an den Werken durch Nachdenken wahrgenommen, so daß sie keine Entschuldigung haben. 21 Denn obschon sie Gott erkannten, haben sie ihn doch nicht als Gott gepriesen und ihm nicht gedankt, sondern sind in ihren Gedanken in eitlen Wahn verfallen, und ihr unverständiges Herz wurde verfinstert. 22 Da sie sich für weise hielten, sind sie zu Narren geworden 23 und haben die Herrlichkeit des unvergänglichen Gottes vertauscht mit dem Bild vom vergänglichen Menschen, von Vögeln und vierfüßigen und kriechenden Tieren. 24 Darum hat sie auch Gott dahingegeben in die Gelüste ihrer Herzen, zur Unreinigkeit, daß sie ihre eigenen Leiber untereinander entehren, 25 sie, welche die Wahrheit Gottes mit der Lüge vertauschten und dem Geschöpf mehr Ehre und Dienst erwiesen als dem Schöpfer, der da gelobt ist in Ewigkeit. Amen! 26 Darum hat sie Gott auch dahingegeben in entehrende Leidenschaften. Denn ihre Frauen haben den natürlichen Gebrauch vertauscht mit dem widernatürlichen; 27 gleicherweise haben auch die Männer den natürlichen Verkehr mit der Frau verlassen und sind gegeneinander entbrannt in ihrer Begierde und haben Mann mit Mann Schande getrieben und den verdienten Lohn ihrer Verirrung an sich selbst empfangen. 28 Und gleichwie sie Gott nicht der Anerkennung würdigten, hat Gott auch sie dahingegeben in unwürdigen Sinn, zu verüben, was sich nicht geziemt, 29 als solche, die voll sind von aller Ungerechtigkeit, Schlechtigkeit, Habsucht, Bosheit; voll Neid, Mordlust, Zank, Trug und Tücke, 30 Ohrenbläser, Verleumder, Gottesverächter, Freche, Übermütige, Prahler, erfinderisch im Bösen, den Eltern ungehorsam; 31 unverständig, unbeständig, lieblos, unversöhnlich, unbarmherzig; 32 welche, wiewohl sie das Urteil Gottes kennen, daß die, welche solches verüben, des Todes würdig sind, es nicht nur selbst tun, sondern auch Gefallen haben an denen, die es verüben.  
    Römerbrief 1:18-32 (Siehe insbesondere Römerbrief 1:24-27.)  
       
 

Wisset ihr denn nicht, daß Ungerechte das Reich Gottes nicht ererben werden? Irret euch nicht: Weder Unzüchtige noch Götzendiener, weder Ehebrecher noch Weichlinge, noch Knabenschänder, 10 weder Diebe noch Habsüchtige, noch Trunkenbolde, noch Lästerer, noch Räuber werden das Reich Gottes ererben.

 
    1 Korinther 6:9-10  
       
 

Und doch ist der Endzweck des Gebotes Liebe aus reinem Herzen und gutem Gewissen und ungeheucheltem Glauben. 6 Dieses [Ziel] haben etliche verfehlt und sich unnützem Geschwätz zugewandt, 7 wollen Gesetzeslehrer sein und bedenken nicht, was sie sagen oder was sie behaupten. 8 Wir wissen aber, daß das Gesetz gut ist, wenn man es gesetzmäßig braucht und berücksichtigt, 9 daß einem Gerechten kein Gesetz auferlegt ist, sondern Gesetzlosen und Unbotmäßigen, Gottlosen und Sündern, Unheiligen und Gemeinen, solchen, die Vater und Mutter mißhandeln, Menschen töten, 10 Unzüchtigen, Knabenschändern, Menschenräubern, Lügnern, Meineidigen und was sonst der gesunden Lehre zuwider ist, 11 nach dem Evangelium der Herrlichkeit des seligen Gottes, mit welchem ich betraut worden bin.

 
    1 Timotheus 1:5-11  
       
 

Judas, Knecht Jesu Christi, Bruder des Jakobus, an die Berufenen, die von Gott, dem Vater, geliebt und für Jesus Christus bestimmt und bewahrt sind. 2 Erbarmen, Frieden und Liebe seien mit euch in Fülle. 3 Liebe Brüder, da es mich sehr drängt, euch über unsere gemeinsame Rettung zu schreiben, halte ich es für notwendig, euch mit diesem Brief zu ermahnen: Kämpft für den überlieferten Glauben, der den Heiligen ein für allemal anvertraut ist. 4 Denn es haben sich einige Leute eingeschlichen, die schon seit langem für das Gericht vorgemerkt sind: gottlose Menschen, die die Gnade unseres Gottes dazu missbrauchen, ein zügelloses Leben zu führen, und die Jesus Christus, unseren einzigen Herrscher und Herrn, verleugnen. 5 Zwar wisst ihr alles ein für allemal; aber ich will euch dennoch daran erinnern: Obwohl der Herr das Volk aus Ägypten gerettet hatte, hat er später alle vernichtet, die nicht glaubten. 6 Die Engel, die ihren hohen Rang missachtet und ihren Wohnsitz verlassen haben, hat er mit ewigen Fesseln in der Finsternis eingeschlossen, um sie am großen Tag zu richten. 7 Auch Sodom und Gomorra und ihre Nachbarstädte sind ein Beispiel: In ähnlicher Weise wie jene trieben sie Unzucht und wollten mit Wesen anderer Art verkehren; daher werden sie mit ewigem Feuer bestraft.

  Owi dwaj aniołowie przybyli do Sodomy wieczorem, kiedy to Lot siedział w bramie Sodomy. Gdy Lot ich ujrzał, wyszedł naprzeciw nich i oddawszy im pokłon do ziemi (2) rzekł: Raczcie, panowie moi, zajść do domu sługi waszego na nocleg; obmyjcie sobie nogi. a rano pójdziecie w dalszą drogę. Ale oni mu rzekli: Nie! Spędzimy noc na dworze. (3) Gdy on usilnie ich prosił, zgodzili się i weszli do jego domu. On zaś przygotował wieczerzę, poleciwszy upiec chleba przaśnego. I posilili się. (4) Zanim jeszcze udali się na spoczynek, mieszkający w Sodomie mężczyźni, młodzi i starzy, ze wszystkich stron miasta, otoczyli dom, (5) wywołali Lota i rzekli do niego: Gdzie tu są ci ludzie, którzy przyszli do ciebie tego wieczoru? Wyprowadź ich do nas, abyśmy mogli z nimi poswawolić! (6) Lot, który wyszedł do nich do wejścia, zaryglowawszy za sobą drzwi, (7) rzekł im: Bracia moi, proszę was, nie dopuszczajcie się tego występku!

  Ktokolwiek obcuje cieleśnie z mężczyzną, tak jak się obcuje z kobietą, popełnia obrzydliwość. Obaj będą ukarani śmiercią, sami tę śmierć na siebie ściągnęli.

  Nie będzie nierządnicy sakralnej wśród córek Izraela ani mężczyzn uprawiających nierząd sakralny wśród synów Izraela. (19) Nie zaniesiesz do domu Pana, Boga twego, zarobku nierządnicy, jak i zapłaty dla psa, jako rzeczy ofiarowanej ślubem. Tak jednym, jak i drugim brzydzi się Pan, Bóg twój.

  Tymczasem pewien starzec wracał wieczorem ze swojej pracy w polu. Człowiek ten pochodził z góry Efraima i w Gibea był przybyszem, gdyż mieszkańcy tego miasta byli Beniaminitami. (17) Podniósł oczy i zauważył podróżnego na placu. Dokąd idziesz i skąd przybyłeś? - zapytał go starzec. (18) Ten odparł: Wracamy z Betlejem judzkiego w strony góry Efraima, skąd pochodzę. Odwiedziłem Betlejem judzkie, a teraz wracam do domu i nie mam nikogo, kto by mnie przyjął pod dach. (19) Mamy słomę i żywność dla naszych osłów oraz chleb i wino dla siebie, dla twej służebnicy i dla tego młodego człowieka, który idzie z twoim sługą. Nie brak mi niczego. (20) Bądź spokojny - rzekł starzec - pozwól mi zaradzić wszystkim twoim potrzebom, ale nie spędzaj nocy na ulicy. (21) Przyprowadził go więc do swego domu, osłom dał obrok, po czym umyli nogi, jedli i pili. (22) Tymczasem, gdy oni rozweselali swoje serca, przewrotni mężowie tego miasta otoczyli dom, a kołacząc we drzwi rzekli do starca, gospodarza owego domu: Wyprowadź męża, który przekroczył próg twego domu, chcemy z nim obcować. (23) Człowiek ów, gospodarz domu, wyszedłszy do nich rzekł im: Nie, bracia moi, proszę was, nie czyńcie tego zła, albowiem człowiek ten wszedł od mego domu, nie popełniajcie tego bezeceństwa.  
    Księga Sędziów 19:16-23  
       
  Juda też czynił to, co jest złe w oczach Pana. Wskutek tego drażnili Go bardziej, niż to czynili jego przodkowie swoimi grzechami, jakie popełniali. Bo i oni sobie zbudowali wyżyny i stele, i aszery przy ołtarzach na każdym wzgórzu wyniosłym i pod każdym drzewem zielonym. Zaczął się również w kraju nierząd sakralny. Postępowali według wszelkich obrzydliwości pogan, których Pan wypędził sprzed Izraelitów.  
    1 Księgi Królów 14:22-24  
       
  Asa czynił to, co jest słuszne w oczach Pana, tak jak jego przodek Dawid, gdyż kazał wysiedlić z kraju uprawiających nierząd sakralny i usunął wszelkie bożki, które zrobili jego przodkowie.  
    1 Księgi Królów 15:11-12  
       
  W chwili objęcia rządów Jozafat miał trzydzieści pięć lat, a królował w Jerozolimie dwadzieścia pięć lat. Jego matce było na imię Azuba - córka Szilchiego. (43) Poszedł on we wszystkim drogą swego ojca, Asy. Nie zboczył z niej starając się czynić to, co słuszne w oczach Pańskich. (44) Tylko wyżyn nie usunięto. Lud składał jeszcze ofiary całopalne i kadzielne na wyżynach. (45) Jozafat zachował pokój z królem izraelskim. (46) A czyż pozostałe dzieje Jozafata i dzielność, jaką okazał i z jaką walczył, nie są opisane w Księdze Kronik Królów Judy? (47) Usunął też z kraju resztę uprawiających nierząd sakralny, który trwał za czasów jego ojca. (48) Kiedy w Edomie nie było króla, ustanowił króla.  
    1 Księgi Królów 22:42-48  
       
    (Uwaga, odniesienia w 1 Królów do nierząd sakralny (kultowych odnoszą) się do prostytutek męskich prostytutek kultowych, to znaczy, że odnoszą się do homoseksualnych prostytutek, które przewrotnie przeznaczonych do wykonywania świętą rolę.)  
       
  Wtedy król polecił przez posłów, by zebrała się koło niego cała starszyzna Judy i Jerozolimy. (2) I wszedł król do świątyni Pańskiej, a wraz z nim wszyscy ludzie z Judy i wszyscy mieszkańcy Jerozolimy, kapłani i prorocy oraz cały lud, od najmniejszych aż do największych. Odczytał głośno całą treść księgi przymierza, znalezionej w świątyni Pańskiej. (3) Następnie król stanął przy kolumnie i zawarł przymierze przed obliczem Pańskim, że pójdą za Panem, że będą przestrzegali Jego poleceń, przykazań i praw całym sercem i całą duszą, że w czyn zamienią słowa tego przymierza, spisane w tejże księdze. I cały lud przystąpił do przymierza. (4) Następnie król wydał rozkaz arcykapłanowi Chilkiaszowi, kapłanom drugiego rzędu oraz strażnikom progów, aby usunęli ze świątyni Pańskiej wszystkie przedmioty sporządzone dla Baala Aszery i całego wojska niebieskiego. Kazał je spalić na zewnątrz Jerozolimy, na polach nad Cedronem, a popiół z nich zanieść do Betel. (5) Zniósł kapłanów pogańskich, których ustanowili królowie judzcy i którzy składali ofiary kadzielne na wyżynach, w miastach Judy i w okolicach Jerozolimy, oraz tych, którzy składali ofiary kadzielne Baalowi, słońcu, księżycowi, gwiazdozbiorom i całemu wojsku niebieskiemu. (6) Usunął Aszerę ze świątyni Pańskiej, na zewnątrz Jerozolimy do doliny Cedronu i spalił ją w dolinie Cedronu, starł na popiół i rzucił popiół jej na groby pospolitego ludu. (7) Zburzył domy osób, uprawiających nierząd sakralny w świątyni Pańskiej, gdzie kobiety przędły zasłony dla Aszery. (8) Kazał zgromadzić się wszystkim kapłanom z miast Judy i splugawił wyżyny, gdzie ci kapłani składali ofiary - od Geba aż do Beer-Szeby. Zniszczył chram Kozłów, który znajdował się u wejścia do bramy Jozuego, zarządcy miasta, po lewej stronie, gdy wchodzi się do bramy miejskiej.  
   

2 Księgi Królów 23:1-8 (w szczególności 2 Księgi Królów 23:7, saldo przewidziane kontekście)

 
       
  Albowiem gniew Boży ujawnia się z nieba na wszelką bezbożność i nieprawość tych ludzi, którzy przez nieprawość nakładają prawdzie pęta. (19) To bowiem, co o Bogu można poznać, jawne jest wśród nich, gdyż Bóg im to ujawnił. (20) Albowiem od stworzenia świata niewidzialne Jego przymioty - wiekuista Jego potęga oraz bóstwo - stają się widzialne dla umysłu przez Jego dzieła, tak że nie mogą się wymówić od winy. (21) Ponieważ, choć Boga poznali, nie oddali Mu czci jako Bogu ani Mu nie dziękowali, lecz znikczemnieli w swoich myślach i zaćmione zostało bezrozumne ich serce. (22) Podając się za mądrych stali się głupimi. (23) I zamienili chwałę niezniszczalnego Boga na podobizny i obrazy śmiertelnego człowieka, ptaków, czworonożnych zwierząt i płazów. (24) Dlatego wydał ich Bóg poprzez pożądania ich serc na łup nieczystości, tak iż dopuszczali się bezczeszczenia własnych ciał. (25) Prawdę Bożą przemienili oni w kłamstwo i stworzeniu oddawali cześć, i służyli jemu, zamiast służyć Stwórcy, który jest błogosławiony na wieki. Amen. (26) Dlatego to wydał ich Bóg na pastwę bezecnych namiętności: mianowicie kobiety ich przemieniły pożycie zgodne z naturą na przeciwne naturze. (27) Podobnie też i mężczyźni, porzuciwszy normalne współżycie z kobietą, zapałali nawzajem żądzą ku sobie, mężczyźni z mężczyznami uprawiając bezwstyd i na samych sobie ponosząc zapłatę należną za zboczenie. (28) A ponieważ nie uznali za słuszne zachować prawdziwe poznanie Boga, wydał ich Bóg na pastwę na nic niezdatnego rozumu, tak że czynili to, co się nie godzi. (29) Pełni są też wszelakiej nieprawości, przewrotności, chciwości, niegodziwości. Oddani zazdrości, zabójstwu, waśniom, podstępowi, złośliwości; (30) potwarcy, oszczercy, nienawidzący Boga, zuchwali, pyszni, chełpliwi, w tym, co złe - pomysłowi, rodzicom nieposłuszni, (31) bezrozumni, niestali, bez serca, bez litości. (32) Oni to, mimo że dobrze znają wyrok Boży, iż ci, którzy się takich czynów dopuszczają, winni są śmierci, nie tylko je popełniają, ale nadto chwalą tych, którzy to czynią.

Celem tego napominania jest miłość, płynąca z czystego serca, dobrego sumienia i wiary nieobłudnej. (6) Niektórzy, nie troszcząc się o to, zagubili się w pustej gadaninie. (7) Chcieliby uchodzić za nauczycieli Prawa, a nie rozumieją dobrze tego, co mówią, ani tego, przy czym się upierają. (8) Wiemy przecież, że Prawo jest dobre, jeśli je ktoś stosuje zgodnie z duchem Prawa. (9) Wiadomo, że Prawo nie występuje przeciwko człowiekowi sprawiedliwemu, ale przeciw łamiącemu Prawo i niesfornym, bezbożnym i grzesznikom, świętokradcom i bluźniercom, ojcobójcom i matkobójcom, przeciw mordercom, (10) rozpustnym zboczeńcom, handlującym ludźmi, kłamcom, krzywoprzysięzcom i w ogóle przeciw temu wszystkiemu, co sprzeciwia się zdrowej nauce. (11) Zawiera ją dobra nowina, głosząca chwałę błogosławionego Boga. Mnie ją powierzono.

Juda, sługa Jezusa Chrystusa a brat Jakuba, do powołanych, umiłowanych w Bogu Ojcu i zachowanych dla Jezusa Chrystusa. (2) Miłosierdzie, pokój i miłość niech będą w pełni waszym udziałem! (3) Najdrożsi! Przejęty wielkim pragnieniem pisania do was o naszym wspólnym zbawieniu, odczuwałem potrzebę zachęcenia was tym listem, abyście walczyli o wiarę raz (na zawsze) przekazaną świętym! (4) Zakradli się bowiem jacyś ludzie bezbożni od dawna, o których potępieniu Pismo mówi, że zamieniają łaskę Boga naszego na wyuzdanie i zapierają się jedynego Władcy i Pana naszego, Jezusa Chrystusa. (5) Wam natomiast, którzyście raz wszystko poznali, pragnę przypomnieć, że Pan, wybawiwszy lud z ziemi egipskiej, potem wytracił tych, którzy nie mieli wiary. (6) Aniołów zaś, którzy nie zachowali swego pierwotnego stanu, lecz porzucili swoje mieszkanie, trzyma skrępowanych wiecznymi więzami w ciemnościach aż do sądu Wielkiego Dnia. (7) W podobny też sposób Sodoma i Gomora oraz okoliczne miasta, które żyły w nieczystości i oddawały się rozpuście przeciw naturze, poniosły karę wiecznego ognia i stały się (odstraszającym) przykładem.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

  If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.  
    Leviticus 20:13  
       
  There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.  
    Deuteronomy 23:17-18  
       
  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46

  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.

Y viéndolos Lot, levantóse á recibirlos, é inclinóse hacia el suelo; Y dijo: Ahora, pues, mis señores, os ruego que vengáis á casa de vuestro siervo y os hospedéis, y lavaréis vuestros pies: y por la mañana os levantaréis, y seguiréis vuestro camino. Y ellos respondieron: No, que en la plaza nos quedaremos esta noche. Mas él porfió con ellos mucho, y se vinieron con él, y entraron en su casa; é hízoles banquete, y coció panes sin levadura y comieron. Y antes que se acostasen, cercaron la casa los hombres de la ciudad, los varones de Sodoma, todo el pueblo junto, desde el más joven hasta el más viejo; Y llamaron á Lot, y le dijeron: ¿Dónde están los varones que vinieron á ti esta noche? sácanoslos, para que los conozcamos.
Entonces Lot salió á ellos á la puerta, y cerró las puertas tras sí, Y dijo: Os ruego, hermanos míos, que no hagáis tal maldad. (Lot se presentó ante ellos a la entrada de la casa, y cerrando la puerta detrás de sí, dijo: «Amigos, les suplico que no cometan esa ruindad».)

I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

1 Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.

  There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.

  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.

  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. (RSV)

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.

  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.

    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.

  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.

  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land.

    Leviticus 20:13  
       
  There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.  
    Deuteronomy 23:17-18  
       
  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.

  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.

    Deuteronomy 23:17-18  
       
  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.  
    Romans 1:18-32 (in particular Romans 1:24-27)  
       
 

9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. (RSV)

 
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10  
       
 

5 whereas the aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith. 6 Certain persons by swerving from these have wandered away into vain discussion, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make assertions. 8 Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 immoral persons, sodomites, kidnapers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 in accordance with the glorious gospel of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted. (RSV)

 
    1 Timothy 1:5-11  
       
 

1 Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

  De to Engle kom nu til Sodoma ved Aftenstid. Lot sad i Sodomas Port, og da han fik Øje på dem, stod han op og gik dem i Møde, bøjede sig til Jorden 2 og sagde: "Kære Herrer, tag dog ind og overnat i eders Træls Hus og tvæt eders Fødder; i Morgen tidlig kan I drage videre!" Men de sagde: "Nej, vi vil overnatte på Gaden." 3 Da nødte han dem stærkt, og de tog ind i hans Hus; derpå tilberedte han dem et Måltid og bagte usyrede Kager, og de spiste. 4 Men endnu før de havde lagt sig, stimlede Byens Folk, Indbyggerne i Sodoma, sammen omkring Huset, både gamle og unge, alle uden Undtagelse, 5 og de råbte til Lot: "Hvor er de Mænd, der kom til dig i Nat Kom herud med dem, for at vi kan stille vor Lyst på dem!" 6 Da gik Lot ud til dem i Porten, men Døren lukkede han efter sig. 7 Og han sagde: "Gør dog ikke noget ondt, mine Brødre!

  Om nogen ligger hos en Mand, på samme Måde som man ligger hos en Kvinde, da har de begge øvet en Vederstyggelighed; de skal lide Døden, der hviler Blodskyld på dem.  
    3 Mosebog 20:13  
       
  Ingen af Israels Døtre må være Skøge, og ingen af Israels Sønner må være Mandsskøge. 18 Du må ikke for at opfylde et Løfte bringe Skøgefortjeneste eller Hundeløn til Herren din Guds Hus; thi begge dele er Herren din Gud en Vederstyggelighed.  
    Deuteronomy 23:17-18  
       
  Så kom der om Aftenen en gammel Mand fra sit Arbejde på Marken, og Manden var fra Efraims Bjerge og boede som fremmed i Gibea, medens Stedets Indbyggere var Benjaminiter; 17 og da den gamle Mand så op og fik Øje på den vejfarende Mand på Byens Torv, spurgte han: "Hvorhen gælder Rejsen, og hvorfra kommer du?" 18 Han svarede ham: "Vi er på Rejse fra Betlehem i Juda til Udkanten af Efraims Bjerge, hvor jeg har hjemme; jeg har været i Betlehem i Juda og er nu på Vejen hjem; men der er ingen, som byder mig ind i sit Hus, 19 skønt jeg har både Strå og Foder til vore Æsler og Brød og Vin til mig selv, din Trælkvinde og din Træls Tjener; vi mangler intet!" 20 Da sagde den gamle Mand: "Vær velkommen! Lad kun alt, hvad du trænger til, være min Sag; men på Torvet må du ikke overnatte!" 21 Så førte han ham ind i sit Hus og sørgede for Foder til Æslerne; og da de havde tvættet deres Fødder, spiste de og drak. 22 Men medens de gjorde sig til gode, se, da omringede Mændene i Byen, Niddinger som de var, Huset og hamrede på Døren og råbte til den gamle Mand, Husets Ejer: "Før Manden, som er taget ind i dit Hus, herud, så at vi kan stille vor Lyst på ham!" 23 Men Manden, der ejede Huset, gik ud til dem og sagde til dem: "Nej, mine Brødre, gør dog ikke noget ondt! Når denne Mand er taget ind i mit Hus, må I ikke øve sådan en Skændselsdåd!  
    Dommer 19:16-23  
       
  Og Juda gjorde, hvad der var ondt i Herrens Øjne, og med de Synder, de begik, vakte de hans Nidkærhed, mere end deres Fædre havde gjort. 23 Også de byggede sig Offerhøje, Stenstøtter og Asjerastøtter på alle høje Steder og under alle grønne Træer; 24 ja, der var endog Mandsskøger i Landet. De øvede alle de Vederstyggeligheder, som var begået af de Folk, Herren havde drevet bort foran Israeliterne.  
    Første Kongebog 14:22-24  
       
  Asa gjorde, hvad der var ret i Herrens Øjne, ligesom hans Fader David; 12 han jog Mandsskøgerne ud af Landet og fjernede alle Afgudsbillederne, som hans Fædre havde ladet lave.  
    Første Kongebog 15:11-12  
       
  Josafat var fem og tredive År gammel, da han blev Konge, og han herskede fem og tyve År i Jerusalem. Hans Moder hed Azuba og var en Datter af Sjilhi. 43 Han vandrede nøje i sin Fader Asas Spor og veg ikke derfra, idet han gjorde, hvad der var ret i Herrens Øjne. 44 Kun blev Offerhøjene ikke fjernet, og Folket blev ved at ofre og tænde Offerild på Højene. 45 Og Josafat havde Fred med Israels Konge. 46 Hvad der ellers er at fortælle om Josafat, de Heltegerninger, han udførte, og de Krige, han førte, står jo optegnet i Judas Kongers Krønike.  
    Første Kongebog 22:42-46  
       
  Da sendte Kongen Bud og lod alle Judas og Jerusalems Ældste kalde sammen hos sig. 2 Derpå gik Kongen op i Herrens Hus, fulgt af alle Judas Mænd og alle Jerusalems Indbyggere, Præsterne, Profeterne og hele Folket, små og store, og han forelæste dem alt, hvad der stod i Pagtsbogen, som var fundet i Herrens Hus. 3 Så tog Kongen Plads ved Søjlen og sluttede Pagt for Herrens Åsyn om, at de skulde holde sig til Herren og holde hans Bud, Vidnesbyrd og Anordninger af hele deres Hjerte og hele deres Sjæl, for at han kunde opfylde denne Pagts Ord, således som de var skrevet i denne Bog. Og alt Folket indgik Pagten. 4 Derpå bød Kongen Ypperstepræsten Hilkija og Andenpræsten og Dørvogterne at bringe alle de Ting, der var lavet til Ba'al, Asjera og hele Himmelens Hær, ud af Herrens Helligdom, og han lod dem opbrænde uden for Jerusalem på Markerne ved Hedron, og Asken lod han bringe til Betel. 5 Og han afsatte Afgudspræsterne, som Judas Konger havde indsat, og som havde tændt Offerild på Højene i Judas Byer og Jerusalems Omegn, ligeledes dem, som havde tændt Offerild for Ba'al og for Solen, Månen, Stjernebillederne og hele Himmelens Hær. 6 Og han lod Asjerastøtten bringe fra Herrens Hus uden for Jerusalem til Kedrons Dal og opbrænde der, og han lod den knuse til Støv og Støvet kaste hen, hvor Småfolk havde deres Grave. 7 Han lod Mandsskøgernes Kamre i Herrens Hus rive ned, dem i hvilke Kvinderne vævede Kjortler til Asjera. 8 Han lod alle Præsterne hente fra Judas Byer og vanhelligede Offer: højene, hvor Præsterne havde tændt offerild, fra Geba til Be'er-sjeba. Og han lod Portofferhøjen rive ned, som var ved Indgangen til Byøversten Jehosjuas Port til venstre, når man går ind ad Byporten.

  Thi Guds Vrede åbenbares fra Himmelen over al Ugudelighed og Uretfærdighed hos Mennesker, som holde Sandheden nede ved Uretfærdighed; 19 thi det, som man kan vide om Gud, er åbenbart iblandt dem; Gud har jo åbenbaret dem det. 20 Thi hans usynlige Væsen, både hans evige Kraft og Guddommelighed, skues fra Verdens Skabelse af, idet det forstås af hans Gerninger, så at de have ingen Undskyldning. 21 Thi skønt de kendte Gud, så ærede eller takkede de ham dog ikke som Gud, men bleve tåbelige i deres Tanker, og deres uforstandige Hjerte blev formørket. 22 Idet de påstode at være vise, bleve de Dårer 23 og omskiftede den uforkrænkelige Guds Herlighed med et Billede i Lighed med et forkrænkeligt Menneske og Fugle og firføddede og krybende dyr. 24 Derfor gav Gud dem hen i deres Hjerters Begæringer til Urenhed, til at vanære deres Legemer indbyrdes, 25 de, som ombyttede Guds Sandhed med Løgnen og dyrkede og tjente Skabningen fremfor Skaberen, som er højlovet i Evighed! Amen. 26 Derfor gav Gud dem hen i vanærende Lidenskaber; thi både deres Kvinder ombyttede den naturlige Omgang med den unaturlige, 27 og ligeså forlode også Mændene den naturlige Omgang med Kvinden og optændtes ideres Brynde efter hverandre, så at Mænd øvede Uterlighed med Mænd og fik deres Vildfarelses Løn, som det burde sig, på sig selv. 28 Og ligesom de forkastede af have Gud i Erkendelse, således gav Gud dem hen i et forkasteligt Sind til at gøre det usømmelige, 29 opfyldte med al Uretfærdighed, Ondskab, Havesyge, Slethed; fulde af Avind, Mord, Kiv, Svig, Ondsindethed; 30 Øretudere, Bagvaskere, Gudshadere, Voldsmænd, hovmodige; Pralere, opfindsomme på ondt, ulydige mod Forældre, 31 uforstandige, troløse, ukærlige, ubarmhjertige; 32 - hvilke jo, skønt de erkende Guds retfærdige Dom, at de, der øve sådanne Ting, fortjene Døden, dog ikke alene gøre det, men også give dem, som øve det, deres Bifald.  
    Romerne 1:18-32 (især Romerne 1:24-27)  
       
 

Eller vide I ikke, at uretfærdige skulle ikke arve Guds Rige? Farer ikke vild! Hverken utugtige eller Afgudsdyrkere eller Horkarle eller de som lade sig bruge til unaturlig Utugt, eller de, som øve den, 10. eller Tyve eller havesyge eller Drankere, ingen Skændegæster, ingen Røvere skulle arve Guds Rige.

Men Påbudets Endemål er Kærlighed af et rent Hjerte og af en god Samvittighed og af en uskrømtet Tro, 6 hvorfra nogle ere afvegne og have vendt sig til intetsigende Snak, 7 idet de ville være Lovlærere uden at forstå, hverken hvad de sige, eller hvorom de udtale sig så sikkert. 8 Men vi vide, at Loven er god, dersom man bruger den lovmæssigt, 9 idet man veed dette, at Loven ikke er sat for den retfærdige, men for lovløse og ulydige, ugudelige og Syndere, ryggesløse og vanhellige, for dem, som øve Vold imod deres Fader og Moder, for Manddrabere, 10 utugtige, Syndere imod Naturen, Menneskerøvere, Løgnere, Menedere, og hvad andet der er imod den sunde Lære, 11 efter den salige Guds Herligheds Evangelium, som er blevet mig betroet.

 
    1 Timoteus 1:5-11  
       
 

Judas, Jesu Kriti Tjener og Broder til Jakob, til de kaldede, som ere elskede i Gud Fader og bevarede for Jesus Kristus: 2 Barmhjertighed og Fred og Kærlighed vorde eder mangfoldig til Del! 3 I elskede! da det lå mig alvorligt på Sinde at skrive til eder om vor fælles Frelse, fandt jeg det nødvendigt at skrive til eder med Formaning om at stride for den Tro, som een Gang er bleven overgiven de hellige. 4 Thi der har indsneget sig nogle Mennesker, om hvem det for længe siden er forud skrevet, at de vilde falde under denne Dom: Ugudelige, som misbruge vor, Guds Nåde til Uterlighed og fornægte vor eneste Hersker og Herre Jesus Kristus. 5 Men skønt I een Gang for alle vide det alt sammen, vil jeg minde eder om, at da Herren havde frelst Folket ud af Ægyptens Land, ødelagde han næste Gang dem, som ikke troede, 6 og de Engle, som ikke bevarede deres Højhed, men forlode deres egen Bolig, bar han holdt forvarede i evige Lænker under Mørke til den store Dags Dom; 7 ligesom Sodoma og Gomorra og de omliggende Stæder, der på samme Måde som disse vare henfaldne til Utugt og gik efter fremmed Kød), ere satte til et Eksempel, idet de bære en evig Ilds Straf.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24

  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.

  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

  The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, 2 and said, “My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the street.” 3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5 and they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” 6 Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, 7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

    Leviticus 20:13  
       
  There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.  
    Deuteronomy 23:17-18  
       
  16 Then in the evening, an old man was coming home from his daily work in the fields. This man was from the Ephraim highlands and was an immigrant in Gibeah, the people of that place being Benjaminites. 17 He looked up and saw the traveler in the city square. “Where are you heading and where have you come from?” the old man asked. 18 “We’re traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to the far corners of the Ephraim highlands,” he replied to the old man. “That’s where I’m from. I went to Bethlehem in Judah, and I’m heading to my home.[a] But no one has offered to take me in tonight. 19 We’ve got our own straw and feed for our donkeys, plus food and wine to provide for me, the woman, and my servant with us. We don’t need anything.” 20 The old man answered, “You’re welcome to stay with me,[b] but let me take care of all your needs. Just don’t spend the night in the square.” 21 And he took him into his house. He mixed feed for the donkeys, and they washed their feet, ate, and drank. 22 While they were relaxing, suddenly the men of the city, a perverse bunch, surrounded the house and started pounding on the door. They said to the old man, the owner of the house, “Send out the man who came to your house, so we can have sex with him!” 23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, please don’t commit such an evil act, given that this man has come to my home as a guest. Don’t do this disgraceful thing!them, “No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.  
    Judges 19:16-23  
       
  And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree; 24 and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.  
    1 Kings 14:22-24  
       
  And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.  
    1 Kings 15:11-12  
       
  42 Jehosh′aphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azu′bah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 He walked in all the way of Asa his father; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 44 Jehosh′aphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh′aphat, and his might that he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 46 And the remnant of the male cult prostitutes who remained in the days of his father Asa, he exterminated from the land.  
    1 Kings 22:42-46  
       
  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.  
   

2 Kings 23:1-8 (in particular 2:Kings 23:7, the balance provided for context;

of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.")

 
       
  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

  Then the king sent, and all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem were gathered to him. 2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, and with him all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets, all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord. 3 And the king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people joined in the covenant. 4 And the king commanded Hilki′ah, the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the threshold, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels made for Ba′al, for Ashe′rah, and for all the host of heaven; he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 And he deposed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places at the cities of Judah and round about Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Ba′al, to the sun, and the moon, and the constellations, and all the host of the heavens. 6 And he brought out the Ashe′rah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem, to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and beat it to dust and cast the dust of it upon the graves of the common people. 7 And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Ashe′rah. 8 And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates that were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one’s left at the gate of the city.  
   

2 Kings 23:1-8 (in particular 2:Kings 23:7, the balance provided for context;
and see the KJV, which renders "male cult prostitutes" as sodomites:
"And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house
of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.")

 
       
  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. (RSV)

 
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10  
       
 

Whereas the aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith. 6 Certain persons by swerving from these have wandered away into vain discussion, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make assertions. 8 Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 immoral persons, sodomites, kidnapers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 in accordance with the glorious gospel of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted. (RSV)

 
    1 Timothy 1:5-11  
       
 

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (RSV)
