(Read Genesis 19 Part 1 First)

30 Afterward Lot left Zoar because he was afraid of the people there, and he went to live in a cave in the mountains with his two daughters.

31 One day the older daughter said to her sister, "There isn't a man anywhere in this entire area for us to marry. And our father will soon be too old to have children.

32 Come, let's get him drunk with wine, and then we will sleep with him. That way we will preserve our family line through our father."

33 So that night they got him drunk, and the older daughter went in and slept with her father. He was unaware of her lying down or getting up again.

34 The next morning the older daughter said to her younger sister, "I slept with our father last night. Let's get him drunk with wine again tonight, and you go in and sleep with him. That way our family line will be preserved."

35 So that night they got him drunk again, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him. As before, he was unaware of her lying down or getting up again.

36 So both of Lot's daughters became pregnant by their father.

37 When the older daughter gave birth to a son, she named him Moab.* He became the ancestor of the nation now known as the Moabites.1

38 When the younger daughter gave birth to a son, she named him Ben-ammi.* He became the ancestor of the nation now known as the Ammonites.2

Read Genesis 20


Notes:

1: Moab sounds like a Hebrew term that means “from father.”

2: Ben-ammi means “son of my people.”
