Looks back to Sodom
But angels said, “Don’t do that”
Lot’s wife turns to salt

Severe punishment?
Commentators seek answers
Here are some of them

Click and learn: Each word in the last line above links to a different online commentary in which the author explores some reasons why Lot’s wife might have looked back, why she was punished or what lessons we can take from the story.
