God's love is patient

How long, O God, is the foe to scoff?
     Is the enemy to revile your name forever?
Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand?
     Take it from the fold of your garment and destroy them!
Yet God my King is from of old,
     working salvation in the midst of the earth.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness,
but is patient toward you,
not wishing that any should perish,
but that all should reach repentance.
- 2 Peter 3:9
