New Defender's Study Bible Notes
10:36 promise. Note the emphasis on God’s promises in Hebrews 11, the faith chapter. See Hebrews 11:9, 11, 13, 17, 33, 39. Sometimes, the fulfillment of a divine promise may seem to us to be long in coming, but it will come! The “little while” (Hebrews 10:37) in God’s timing may seem like a great while to us, but God transcends time, for He created it. He sees the fulfillment happening, just as He hears the promise given, so it is inevitable. When the time comes, He “will not tarry” (Hebrews 10:37; see Habakkuk 2:3).
