“But if we hope
For what we do not see.
We wait for it
εἰ δὲ ὃ οὐ βλέπομεν ἐλπίζομεν, δι’ ὑπομονῆς ἀπεκδεχόμεθα.
Paul said that if we (εἰ δὲ) have hope (ἐλπίζομεν) for what we do not see (ὃ οὐ βλέπομεν), we eagerly wait (ἀπεκδεχόμεθα) for it with patience (δι’ ὑπομονῆς). Paul explained that real hope is for something that we do not see. Thus, we wait eagerly in hope, but we wait patiently also. We have real patient hope when we expect something that we have not seen, not about something we have already seen. Do you have a patient hope about anything?
