SLOW (Heb. kāvēdh, heavy, ‘erekh, to make long, Gr. bradys, dull, argos, inactive). Moses said he was slow of speech (Exod.4.10). This does not refer to any particular defect but simply to the fact that his words did not come readily. “Longsuffering” would almost be a synonym of ‘erekh as seen in many OT passages (Neh.9.17; Ps.103.8; Ps.145.8). It always refers to the passions in the OT. The Greek words are found only three times in the NT (Luke.24.25; Titus.1.12; Jas.1.19).
