Having mentioned 'Chasanav', why did the Pasuk add 'Lokchei Benosav'?

1.

Rashi: "Chasanav" refers to his sons-in-law (who lived in Sedom), "Lokchei Benosav", to the Chasanim to whom the two daughters who were still living at home were betrothed. 1

2.

Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: They are in fact, one and the same - 'his sons-in-law who were married to his daughters'. 2

Refer to 19:12:2:3.

2

As the Torah sometimes does. According to this explanation, the two daughters who lived with Lot and who accompanied him when he fled S'dom were not necessarily betrothed.

"B'Einei Chasanav" connotes that they could see. The angels blinded everyone!

1.

Moshav Zekenim: They did not really blind everyone. Rather, it was an illusion, so they could not find the house.
