Matthew Poole’s English Annotations on the Holy Bible

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

2 Pet. 3:9

But that all should come to repentance; all whom he has elected; he would have the whole number of them filled up, and defers the day of judgment till it be so: or this may be meant not of God’s secret and effectual will, but of his revealed will, whereby He calls all to repentance promiscuously that hear the gospel preached, has made it their duty, approves of it, has prescribed it as the way of salvation, commanded them to seek salvation in that way, and is ready to receive and save them upon their repenting: see 1 Timothy 2:4.
