Abraham's youngest brother's son; the narrative describes how when the city of Sodom was to be destroyed Lot and his family were rescued by divine intervention (Gen. 19: 1–19), but Lot's wife looked back at the mayhem and was transformed into a pillar of salt (Luke 17: 28 ff.). The Moabites and the Ammonites were believed to have originated in incestuous unions between Lot and his two daughters (Gen. 19: 30–38).
