Genesis 19

Two angels came to Sodom and Lot invited them to his house.

...the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people, to the last man, surrounded the house; and they called out to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly. Behold, I have two daughters who have not known man; let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please…”

Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 2

In Bhagavad-Gita Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior.

“To Arjuna whose mind was thus overpowered by pity and grief and eyes dimmed with tears Krishna spoke these words: O Arjuna, whence comes upon thee in this critical moment this depression unworthy of an Aryan, disgraceful, and contrary to the attainment of heaven?
O son of Pritha, yield not to unmanliness; it does not benefit thee. Casting off this mean faint-heartedness, arise, O terror of thy foes.”
