ויתמהמה. כְּדֵי לְהַצִּיל אֶת מָמוֹנוֹ:

ויתמהמה BUT HE LINGERED in order to save his property.

ויחזיקו. אֶחָד מֵהֶם הָיָה שָׁלִיחַ לְהַצִּילוֹ וַחֲבֵרוֹ לַהֲפֹךְ סְדוֹם, לְכָךְ נֶאֱמַר "וַיֹּאמֶר" הִמָּלֵט, וְלֹא נֶאֱמַר וַיֹּאמְרוּ (בראשית רבה):

ויחזיקו AND THE MEN LAID HOLD [UPON HIS HAND]— One of these was commissioned to rescue him whilst his fellow was to overthrow Sodom; that is why it is stated (v. 17) “And he said, escape”, and it is not stated “And they said” (Genesis Rabbah 50:11).
