Luke 18:6-8Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
6 And the Lord said, “Listen-to what the unrighteous judge is saying[a]. 7 And shall not God execute vengeance[b]for His chosen ones— the ones crying-out to Him by day and by night and He is being patient[c] with them? 8 I say to you that He will execute vengeance for them quickly. However, the Son of Man having come, will He find faith[d] on the earth?”
Luke 18:6The judge is saying he will answer because of her continual coming and persistent asking.
Luke 18:7Unlike the unrighteous judge who only answered out of impatience, God is patient with those crying out to Him. Or, and He is delaying [to act] for them? (from their point of view). Or, night? And is He delaying over them?
Luke 18:8Or, faithfulness. Lit, the faith. That is, the faith spoken of in this parable, which prays and does not lose heart; or more broadly, a true faith in God that would act in this way. No answer is implied by the grammar of the question.
