Wisdom 12:10
You were judging them little by little to give them an opportunity to change their hearts and minds. You did so even though you knew full well that they were wicked from their birth, that their natural inclination was to evil, and that they would never change their minds.
But executing thy judgments by degrees thou gavest them place of repentance, not being ignorant that they were a wicked generation, and their malice natural, and that their thought could never be changed.
But instead, you carried out your sentence gradually, to give them a chance to repent, even though you knew that they came from evil stock, that they had been wicked since birth, and that they would never change their way of thinking.
But condemning them by degrees, you gave them space for repentance. You were not unaware that their origins were wicked and their malice ingrained, And that their dispositions would never change;
But judging them little by little you gave them an opportunity to repent, though you were not unaware that their origin was evil and their wickedness inborn, and that their way of thinking would never change.

But judging them little by little thou gavest them a chance to repent, though thou wast not unaware that their origin was evil and their wickedness inborn, and that their way of thinking would never change.
but thou deemedest by parts, and gavest place to penance, and knewest, that the nation of them was wayward, and their malice was kindly (or by kind), that is, made hard by long custom, and that their thought might not be changed without end. [but by parts deeming, thou gave place of penance, not unknowing, for shrewd (or depraved) is the nation of them, and kindly the malice of them, and for the thought of them might not be changed into evermore.]
