Matthew 25:5; Hebrews 10:37; 2 Peter 3:4; 2 Peter 3:9

As the bridegroom fwas delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.

37 For,

bYet a little while,

and cthe coming one will come and will not delay;

lThey will say, Where is the promise of mhis coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.

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.
