19:8 I have two daughters who have never known a man. I will bring them out to you. Do as you please with them. But don't do anything to these men. After all, they have come under my roof!'
Hineh-na li shtey vanot asher-lo yade'u ish otsiah-na ethen aleychem va'asu lahen katov be'eyneychem rak la'anashim ha'El al-ta'asu davar ki-al-ken ba'u betsel korati.



Commentary:

under my roof
  Literally, 'they have come in the shadow of my rafters.' See Genesis 18:5.
