But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house. Bible see other translations

“all the people to the last man.” The word “outskirts” is the Hebrew for “end, extremity,” and some translators think it means, “to the last man” (ESV; NAB), while others think it means “to the end of the city” (CJB; NASB; NET; NIV; YLT). In either case, this verse explains why God could not find ten righteous people in the city, especially after Lot and his family left Sodom (Gen. 18:32).
