Romans 10:21

All the day long (olhn thn hmeran). Accusative of extent of time. He quotes Isaiah 65:2 . Did I spread out (exepetasa). First aorist active indicative of ekpetannumi, old verb, to stretch out, bold metaphor, only here in N.T. Unto a disobedient and a gainsaying people (pro laon apeiqounta kai antilegonta). "Unto a people disobeying and talking back." The two things usually go together. Contrary and contradictory ( Luke 13:34 ).
