2 Peter 3:8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

[a]But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years[b] and a thousand years like one day.

Footnotes:

  1. 3:8–10 The scoffers’ objection (2 Pt 3:4) is refuted also by showing that delay of the Lord’s second coming is not a failure to fulfill his word but rather a sign of his patience: God is giving time for repentance before the final judgment (cf. Wis 11:23–26; Ez 18:23; 33:11).
  2. 3:8 Cf. Ps 90:4.
