Genesis 19:26 (King James Version)
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
- This unhappy woman, says the Rev
- T. Scott, "looked back," contrary to God's express command, perhaps with a hope of returning, which latter supposition is favoured by our Lord's words, "Let him not return back: remember Lot's wife." She was, therefore, instantaneously struck dead and petrified, and thus remained to after ages a visible monument of the Divine displeasure.
