looked:
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. "And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed." {Gen 19:17} + "The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man [shall be satisfied] from himself." {Prv 14:14} + "In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. ... Remember Lot's wife." {Lke 17:31-32} + "Now the just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him." {Hbr 10:38}
and:
" The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates [for] a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel." {Num 16:38}
