NET © Notes

tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

sn The prayers have to do with the righteous who cry out to him to receive justice. The context assumes the righteous are persecuted.

tn The emphatic particles in this sentence indicate that God will indeed give justice to the righteous.

sn The issue of delay has produced a whole host of views for this verse. (1) Does this assume provision to endure in the meantime? Or (2) does it mean God restricts the level of persecution until he comes? Either view is possible.
