- Nephew of Patriarch Abraham
- Progenitor of Moabite and Ammonite peoples
Lot (A covering). Son of Haran, Abraham’s brother (Gen. 11:27, 31; 12:4–5; 13:1, 5). He went with Abraham to Canaan; his life after his separation from Abraham is described in Gen. 13–14; 19. He was the ancestor of Moab and Ammon (Gen. 19:37–38; Deut. 2:9, 19). There are New Testament references to him in Luke 17:29; 2 Pet. 2:7. His wife’s fate is also referred to in Gen. 19:26; Luke 17:32.
He was a patriarch in the biblical Book of Genesis chapters 11–14 and 19. Notable events in his life include his journey with his uncle Abram (Abraham) and his flight from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, during which Lot's wife became a pillar of salt, (Gen. 17) and Lot was raped by his daughters so that they could bear children.
Lot and his Daughters Edit
The account of Lot and his daughters is in Genesis 19:30–38
Genesis 19:30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
The older daughter conceived Moab (Hebrew מוֹאָב, lit., "from the father" [meh-Av]), father of the Moabites;[v. 37] the younger conceived Ben-Ammi (Hebrew בֶּן-עַמִּי, lit., "Son of my people"), father of the Ammonites.[v. 38]
