you know that this word as used here meant for the men to have sexual intercourse and rapine with what they thought were mere men while in reality they were and did have the ability to destroy them.<quoted text>
And they called to Lot,“Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may KNOW them
Your argument is astoundingly brilliant here. Knew you say means marital relations. So the men in Sodom and Gomorrah didnt know they had to be married to know them or did the bible sanction homosexual marriage and they were secretly married. Your conclusions are sola confusing. lol
in fact, the town became a name forever known in History for this type of deviant behavior.
