Lot (biblical person)

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lots Flight, by Albrecht Dürer

Lot was a patriarch in the biblical Book of Genesis chapters 11–14 and 19. He moves to Sodom and Gomorrah. He leaves quickly when angels warn him of the coming destruction of the cities, but his wife looks back 'and she became a pillar of salt' (Genesis 19:26) He fathers children with his daughters when they get him drunk. They gave birth to Moab and Ammon.
