Cities of the Plain

Gen. 13:10

And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw the entire plain of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere–[this was] before Jehovah had destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah–like the garden of Jehovah, like the land of Egypt, as you go to Zoar.

Gen 14:2-3

2 These kings made war with Bera the king of Sodom and with Birsha the king of Gomorrah, Shinab the king of Admah, and Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar).

3 All these joined together in the valley of Siddim (that is, the Salt Sea).

Gen. 19:20-30

20 Here, this city is nearby to flee to, and it is a little one. Please let me escape there–is it not a little one?–and I shall live.

21 And He said to him, I now grant you this request also, that I will not overthrow the city concerning which you have spoken.

22 Hurry, escape there; for I cannot do anything until you arrive there. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

23 The sun had risen over the earth when Lot came to Zoar.

24 Then Jehovah rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from Jehovah out of heaven.

25 And He overthrew those cities and all the plain and all the inhabitants of the cities and what grew on the ground.

26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

27 And Abraham rose up early in the morning [and went] to the place where he had stood before Jehovah.

28 And he looked down upon Sodom and Gomorrah and upon all the land of the plain. And as he looked, there it was: the smoke of the land was going up like the smoke of a furnace.

29 And when God destroyed the cities of the plain, God remembered Abraham and sent Lot out from the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities among which Lot dwelt.

30 Then Lot went up out of Zoar and dwelt in the mountains, and his two daughters with him, for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar. And he and his two daughters dwelt in a cave.

Deut. 29:23

23 And that all its land is sulfur and salt, a burning waste; [that] it is not sown, nor does it sprout, nor does any vegetation come up in it; [that] it is like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which Jehovah overthrew in His anger and burning wrath

Note: Jehovah destroyed the cities of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim. He didn’t destroy the city of Zoar because that is where Lot was supposed to go to get away from the destruction of the other cities, but he instead fled to the mountains.
