“For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:37 He that cometh - To reward every man according to his works.
Heb 10:37 For yet a little while. Quoted from Hab 2:3 and applied to Christ. And he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Soon Christ will come, either in person or by his providence, in such a way as to bring relief. He did thus come very soon after and ended Jewish persecution by the overthrow of the nation. This is a frequent sense of oft-repeated allusions to the coming of the Lord found both in the Old Testament and New Testament. See Hab 2:5-20. The passage there quoted refers to the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, and is here applied to the destruction by the Romans.
