19c-Lot and His Daughters  

Genesis 19:30-38 
Lot left the city of Zoar and took his two daughters with him, because he feared to dwell in Zoar. Lot dwelt in the mountain in a cave with his two daughters. 

The older daughter (to the younger): Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth. Let’s make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, so that we may preserve seed of our father. 

They made their father drink wine that night. The older daughter went in to her father and lay with Lot did not know when she lay down nor when she arose. 

The next day:

The older daughter (to the younger): Behold, I lay yesternight with my father. Let’s make him drink wine this night also. You go in and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 

They made their father drink wine that night also. The younger arose, and lay with him. Lot did not know when she lay down nor when she arose. 

So both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. 
The firstborn bare a son and called his name Moab, the same is the father of the Moabites.

The younger also bare a son, and called his name Ben–ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon. (The Ammonites)

Lot’s daughters may have had good intentions (to preserve the seed of their father –vs 34). But we can see the results of their actions. They raised up enemies of God’s people.
