(28) Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot.--The illustration does not occur in the otherwise parallel passage of Matthew 24:26-27, but was naturally suggested by our Lord's frequent reference to the Cities of the Plain (Luke 10:12; Matthew 10:15; Matthew 11:23); The allusion to Lot in 2Peter 2:7, may perhaps be traced to the impression made on the Apostle by this revival of the history.

They bought, they sold.--As in the preceding verse, the imperfect tense is used, they were buying, they were selling. There is a characteristic difference in the insertion of these verbs and the two which follow, as indicating a higher advance in social life than in the days of Noah.
