The only humans to escape the LORD's destruction of Sodom were Lot, his wife, and their two daughters.
"19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
"There is not a man in the earth"
All four members of Lot's family could have made it to safety. Unfortunately for herself, Lot's wife hesitated, and was killed.
"19:23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 19:25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
The justification, in the minds of Lot's daughters, of the incest that followed, may well have been the mistaken belief that all of humanity had been destroyed, except themselves. Hence their statement "there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth." Lot himself "perceived not" his daughters' plan.
"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. 19:31 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: 19:32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
Fact Finder: Was righteous Ruth, who became an ancestor of King David, and hence Jesus Christ, a descendant of one of Lot's daughters, from whom the Moabites originated?
