When the two visitors got to Sodom to conduct their report, they planned on staying in the city square. However, Abraham's nephew, Lot, met with them and strongly insisted that these two "men" stay at his house for the night. A rally of men stood outside of Lot's home and demanded that they bring out his guests so that they may "know" () them. However, Lot objected and offered his virgin daughters who had not "known" () man to the rally of men instead. They rejected that notion and sought to break down Lot's door to get to his male guests, [Genesis 19:1–9] thus confirming the wickedness of the city and portending their imminent destruction. [Genesis 19:12–13]
