Thayer's Expanded Definition

μακροθυμία, μακροθυμίας, (μακρόθυμος (cf. μακροθυμέω)) (Vulg. longanimitas, etc.), i. e.:

1. patience, endurance, constancy, steadfastness, perseverance; especially as shown in bearing troubles and ills (Plutarch, Luc. 32f; ἄνθρωπος ὤν μηδέποτε τήν ἀλυπιαν αἰτου παρά θεῶν, ἀλλά μακροθυμίαν, Menander fragment 19, p. 203, Meineke edition (vol. iv., p. 238 Frag. comic. Graec. (Berl. 1841))): Colossians 1:11; 2 Timothy 3:10; Hebrews 6:12; James 5:10; Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 64 [ET]; the Epistle of Barnabas 2, 2 [ET]; (Isaiah 57:15; Josephus, b. j. 6, 1, 5; cf. 1 Macc. 8:4).

2. patience, forbearance, long-suffering, slowness in avenging wrongs, (for אַפַּיִם אֶרֶך, Jeremiah 15:15): Romans 2:4; Romans 9:22; 2 Corinthians 6:6; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 4:2; Colossians 3:12; 1 Timothy 1:16 (cf. Buttmann, 120 (105)); 2 Timothy 4:2; 1 Peter 3:20; 2 Peter 3:15; (Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 13, 1 [ET]; Ignatius ad Eph. 3, 1 [ET]). [SYNONYMS: μακροθυμία, ὑπομονή (occur together or in the same context in Colossians 1:11; 2 Corinthians 6:4, 6; 2 Timothy 3:10; James 5:10, 11; cf. Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 64 [ET]: Ignatius ad Eph. 3, 1 [ET]): Lightfoot remarks (on Colossians, the passage cited), "The difference of meaning is best seen in their opposites. While ὑπομονή is the temper which does not easily succumb under suffering, μακροθυμία is the self-restraint which does not hastily retaliate a wrong. The one is opposed to cowardice or despondency, the other to wrath or revenge (Proverbs 15:18; Proverbs 16:32) ... This distinction, though it applies generally, is not true without exception" ...; cf. also his note on Colossians 3:12, and see (more at length) Trench, N. T. Synonyms, § liii.]

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the recently recovered fragment of the Greek text of the Apocalypse of Baruch, P Oxy III. 403, we find—.8 ff. ἀληθῶς γὰρ ἐν ] καιρῷ ἐξυπνισθήσεται | [πρὸς σὲ ἡ ὀργὴ ἡ νῦν ὑπὸ τ ] ̣ς ̣ μακροθυμ [ ]ας ὡς χαλινῷ κατέχεται, ";for assuredly in its season the wrath will be awakened against thee which now is restrained by long-suffering as it were by a rein"; (Edd.).
