Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentLuke 18:7
- And he is longsuffering (makrotumei).
- This present active indicative comes in awkwardly after the aorist subjunctive poihshi after ou mh, but this part of the question is positive. Probably kai here means "and yet" as so often (John 9:30; 16:32, etc.). God delays taking vengeance on behalf of his people, not through indifference, but through patient forbearance.
