Don’t look behind you, and don’t stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be consumed!”

Genesis 19:1-29

18 Lot said to them, “Oh, not so, my lord. 19 See now, your servant has found favour in your sight, and you have magnified your loving kindness, which you have shown to me in saving my life. I can’t escape to the mountain, lest evil overtake me, and I die.
