Ecclesiastes 8:11; Romans 2:4–5; 2 Peter 3:9

11 Because nthe sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, othe heart of the children of man is fully set to do evil.


Or do you presume on hthe riches of his kindness and iforbearance and jpatience, knot knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are lstoring up mwrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.


uThe Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise vas some count slowness, but wis patient toward you,1 xnot wishing that any should perish, but ythat all should reach repentance.
