Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 19:2

_ _ turn in, I pray you ... tarry all night — offer of the same generous hospitalities as described in Genesis 18:2-8, and which are still spontaneously practised in the small towns.

_ _ And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night — Where there are no inns and no acquaintance, it is not uncommon for travellers to sleep in the street wrapped up in their cloaks.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
