ASV notes on Genesis 19:23-29

The sun had risen, may be it was close to midday when Lot and his family came to this small village, they had been running for a long time, probably several hours when brimstones and fire begun to rain down from heaven, their place in Sodom and their life there were about to be demolished.

But Lots wife couldn’t resist turning around and look at and probably longing for her “city life” a last time. One of the two men warned her not to look back, but she followed her heart and not God, turning into a pillar of salt.  Everything in the valley of Jordan and all the cities there were destroyed.

Lot and his family had been living in more than one city in the valley, probably in all of them while moving his flocks around. The thinking of Lots family had been under the influence of the sinful people in the valley area for many years and their way of reasoning had gradually changed. God saved Lot and his family, not because of them, but because of Abraham, the righteous one with his heart towards YAHAWAH his precious God.  If Jesus is in you, God looks at you and sees Jesus.
