His name in Hebrew is: לוט Lôwt (lote) Strongs #3876. In Greek: Λώτ Lōt, (lote)
Basing on Jasher 24:22, Lot was one year older than his half-uncle, Abraham.
And Lot the son of Haran also died in those days, in the thirty-ninth year of the
life of Isaac, and all the days that Lot lived were one hundred and forty years and
he died. (1)
If Lot is one year older than Abraham, then he would be eleven years older than his
sister Sarah, but his father Haran married when he was 39. However, according to
calculations, Lot was born when Haran was 31, eight years before he had married.
And Haran, the son of Terah, Abram's oldest brother, took a wife in those days. Haran
was thirty-nine when he took her; and the wife of Haran conceived and bare a son,
and he called his name Lot. (2)
Jasher 24:22 looks contradictory to Jasher 9:2, but if Abraham was one hundred when
his son Isaac was born, and Lot died when Isaac 39, then Abraham would have been
139 when Lot died at the age of 140. Therefore, Lot would have been 101 when his
nephew, Isaac was born.
Lot was fifty-one, when his father died in Nimrod's furnace, (3) and was fifty-three
when he finally left Ur of the Chaldees with his half-uncle, Abram. (4)
Lot lived in Haran with Abram for over twenty years until the age of 76 and then
went with Abram to the plains of Mamre. (5)
When there was a famine in Canaan, Lot went with Abram and Sarai to Egypt, but he
wasn't able to stay very long in Egypt because of the way that Abram wanted his wife
(Lot's sister) introduced. (6)
Lot had a heavy abundance of cattle and sheep as well as Abram. Lot let his flocks
feed on other people's property, whereas Abram's flocks remained on his own property.
When the people of the land complained to Abram, Abram quarreled with Lot to have
him end his practices of grazing his animals on other people's pastures. However,
Lot would not listen to his half-uncle.
Finally, Abram told Lot that he must move to some other place, but their friendship
would not be broken. Therefore, Lot traveled toward the plain of Jordan and dwelt
in Sodom. (7)
Lot was 79 when Chedorlaomer, King of Elam came to smite Sodom with three other kings,
in which Nimrod, King of Shinar was one of them. Chedorlaomer fought the five kings
of Sodom and Gomorrah in the valley of Siddim (or the Salt Sea). However, the battle
was sore against the Sodomites, so they fled to the mountains for safety. Chedorlaomer
pursued the Sodomites to the gates of the city and then plundered the city.
Chedorlaomer took Lot captive along with all his goods. However, Abram's servant
Unic was in the battle at the time and told Abram about Lot. Therefore, Abram came
with 318 men and smote the army of the four kings of Elam so that the kings were
the only ones left.
Abram recovered the property of Sodom and Lot's property so that there wasn't anything
lacking. Then, Lot returned to Sodom, and Abram returned to Mamre. (8)
Lot was 100 when his daughter, Paltith was killed by the Sodomites for helping a
poor man. At this time, Lot was visited by two angels, who had just been to Abraham's
house. Lot was at the gates of Sodom that evening, invited the angels to his house,
and gave his hospitality to them. The angels told Lot that he should leave Sodom
before Yahvah destroyed the city. In which Lot did that night. When Lot had left
the city and arrived in Zoar, Yahvah rained on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone
and fire, at which Lot's wife, Ado looked back to see the destruction of the city
and became a pillar of salt.
Lot and his remaining daughters fled to the cave of Adullam and dwelt there for a
Lot was soon made drunk by his daughters and then Lot found out that he was a father
and a grandfather to Moab and Ben-ammi. (10)
It is possible that Lot had five daughters, but two of Lot's daughter remained in
Sodom with their husbands. (11)
She is only mentioned in Jasher and no place else.
She was born after the battle that the kings of Elam had against the kings of Sodom,
and Lot was delivered from it with the help of Abraham his half-uncle. (21)
Paltith married a man of Sodom, but had no known offspring. (22)
Being compassionate got her into trouble with the citizens of Sodom since they liked
to torture any travelers or poor people that should come into their city. Paltith
found a poor man in the streets who was starving since a Sodomite proclamation was
issued that no food was to be given to the poor man. The Sodomites wanted the poor
man to die so that they could take possession of his clothing and anything else that
the man had in his possession. (23)
The poor man was on brink of death from starvation, so Paltith secretly hid bread
in her water pitcher and brought nourishment to the man and she did this for many
When the Sodomites took notice that the man was not changing in appearance to the
starvation, they put spies in the area where the poor man was and caught Paltith
in the act of feeding the poor man. Paltith was seized along with the bread that
was in the poor man's hand, and she was brought to the judges and sentence to death
by burning. (25) She died at the age of 39.
