Love is represented in scriptures as
an attribute of God
a Christian virtue

In Aristotelian terms peace is per definition that for the reason of which wars are waged. Thus, peace is causa finalis, or final cause of war. Now, the peace that a Christian will gain in God is the outcome of his war against the reign of sin and Satan, who acts in and through the sin and foments it.

ἀπειθήσασίν ποτε ὅτε ἀπεξεδέχετο ἡ τοῦ Θεοῦ μακροθυμία ἐν ἡμέραις Νῶε

waiting in the days of Noah, the ark being prepared ...
Thus, the "when&...

who sometime disbelieved, when once the long-suffering of God did wait,

The answer is that the Hebrew word for arm זְרֹע is a female noun, regardless of who's arm it is. If I were to use the words זרע יצחק meaning Isaac's arm, it would still be a female noun.
