30  And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar; and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.

30  And Lot ascended from Zoar, and he stayed on the mountain, and likewise his two daughters with him, (for he was afraid to stay in Zoar) and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters with him.

31  And the first-born said unto the younger: 'Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth.

31  And the elder said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is no one on the earth who shall come in to us, as it is fit in all the earth.

32  Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.'

32  Come and let us make our father drink wine, and let us sleep with him, and let us raise up seed from our father.

33  And they made their father drink wine that night. And the first-born went in, and lay with her father; and he knew not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

33  So they made their father drink wine in that night, and the elder went in and lay with her father that night, and he knew not when he slept and when he rose up.

33  And so they gave their father wine to drink that night. And the elder went in, and she slept with her father. But he did not perceive it, neither when his daughter lay down, nor when she rose up.

34  And it came to pass on the morrow, that the first-born said unto the younger: 'Behold, I lay yesternight with my father. Let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.'

34  Likewise, the next day, the elder said to the younger: “Behold, yesterday I slept with my father, let us give him wine to drink yet again this night, and you will sleep with him, so that we may save offspring from our father.”

35  And they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose, and lay with him; and he knew not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

35  So they made their father drink wine in that night also, and the younger went in and slept with her father, and he knew not when he slept, nor when he arose.

35  And then they gave their father wine to drink that night also, and the younger daughter went in, and slept with him. And not even then did he perceive when she lay down, or when she rose up.

36  Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

36  And the two daughters of Lot conceived by their father.

36  Therefore, the two daughters of Lot conceived by their father.

37  And the first-born bore a son, and called his name Moab--the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

37  And the elder bore a son and called his name Moab, saying, He is of my father. This is the father of the Moabites to this present day.

38  And the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi--the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

38  And the younger also bore a son, and called his name Amman, saying, The son of my family. This is the father of the Ammanites to this present day.

38  Likewise, the younger gave birth to a son, and she called his name Ammon, that is, ‘the son of my people.’ He is the father of the Ammonites, even today.
