John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 19:16

Tho' Lot did not make a jest of the warning as his sons — in — law, yet he lingered, he did not make so much haste as the case required. And it might have been fatal to him, if the angels had not laid hold on his hand, and brought him forth. Herein the Lord was merciful to him, otherwise he might justly have left him to perish, since he was loath to depart. If God had not been merciful to us, our lingering had been our ruin.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(h) The mercy of God strives to overcome man's slowness in following God's calling.
