The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise,
as some count slackness,
but is longsuffering toward us,
not willing that any should perish
but that all should come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord
will come as a thief in the night,
in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise,
and the elements will melt
with fervent heat;
both the earth and the works that are in it
will be burned up.
2 Peter 3:9-10
