And the men did not want to listen to him, but the man seized his concubine and made her go out to them, outside, and they knew her sexually and abused her all night until the morning, and they sent her away when the day began to dawn. Bible

“made her go out.” The Hebrew is that he caused her to go out. The versions handle this differently: “made her go out” (ESV); “pushed her out” (E. Fox). In any case, the old man did not want to go outside of the house because the crowd actually wanted the man, not the girl, so “brought her out,” as many versions have, is not correct. The man pushed the girl out of the house to the mob.
