Lot, entertaining Angels in his house, is delivered from Sodom, which is destroyed: his wife for looking back is turned into a statue of salt.

[30] And Lot went up out of Segor, and abode in the mountain, and his two daughters with him, (for he was afraid to stay in Segor,) and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters with him.

[26] "And his wife": As a standing memorial to the servants of God to proceed in virtue, and not to look back to vice or its allurements.

[31] And the elder said to the younger: Our father is old, and there is no man left on the earth, to come in unto us after the manner of the whole earth. [32] Come, let us make him drunk with wine, and let us lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. [33] And they made their father drink wine that night: and the elder went in and lay with her father: but he perceived not neither when his daughter lay down, nor when she rose up. [34] And the next day the elder said to the younger: Behold I lay last night with my father, let us make him drink wine also to night, and thou shalt lie with him, that we may save seed of our father. [35] They made their father drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went in, and lay with him: and neither then did he perceive when she lay down, nor when she rose up.

[36] So the two daughters of Lot were with child by their father. [37] And the elder bore a son, and she called his name Moab: he is the father of the Moabites unto this day. [38] The younger also bore a son, and she called his name Ammon, that is, the son of my people: he is the father of the Ammonites unto this day.
