And the old man said, “Peace be to you; but let whatever you lack be on me, only do not spend the night in the square.” Bible

“only do not spend the night in the square.” The old man may have said this simply due to hospitality, but it is also likely that he knew the character of the people in the city and wanted to protect the men. This seems very similar to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19:1-3).
