“But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, for the compassion of the LORD was upon him; and they brought him out, and put him outside the city.”  Gen. 19:16

Lot hesitated when the angels told him to leave.  Lot’s sons in law thought he was joking, and they were left behind.  Lot’s wife turned back while escaping, and was killed.  Lot hesitated, but was spared. Why? “…the compassion of the LORD was upon him.”
