Rachel Chimits

“Will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily…” (Luke 18:7-8 ESV).

French has two forms of future tense: “l’avenir” and “le futur.”

The first form refers to what will result from people’s actions in the present. The second is more ambiguous and open-ended because there are simply certain turns in future events that cannot be predicted.

David Wilkerson
