The Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.

I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.

Can any man hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?

Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord.

The eyes of the Lord are in every place beholding the evil and the good. The Lord searchest all hearts, and understandest all the imaginations of the thoughts. There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

The Lord our God is one Lord.

There is none other God but one. God is one. There are three that bare record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death.

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

We trust in the living God, who is the saviour of all men, especially of those that believe.

O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth!

God is the judge. The Lord shall judge the people.

God hath appointed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness.

God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil.

There is no respect of persons with God.

I am the Lord, I change not.

Every good gift, and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

God is not a man that he should lie ; neither the son of man, that he should repent. Hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

He is the living God, and steadfast for ever. The word of our God shall stand for ever. Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever.

A thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

No man hath seen God at any time. There shall no man see me and live.

The invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead.

I am the Almighty God. The Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty.

Great is our Lord, and of great power. With God all things are possible. With God nothing shall be impossible.

He commanded, and they were created.

By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host thereof by the breath of his mouth. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. God said let there be light and there was light.

None can stay his hand, or say unto him, what doest thou? His hand, is stretched out, and who shall turn it back ?

It is he that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain ; which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble; which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not, and sealeth up the stars; which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea: which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south; which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth fainteth not, neither is weary.

Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

Who hath divided a watercourse for the over flowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder?

The Lord thundered from heaven. The God of glory thundereth. The thunder of his power who can understand?

His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord.

The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God.

The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

With God is terrible majesty. O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places.

The Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

He commandeth and raiseth the stormy wind. He maketh the storm a calm.

Extol him that rideth upon the heavens. Sing to him that rideth upon the heaven of heavens. He bowed the heavens and came down and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.

His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. And his brightness was as the light. Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow his ways are everlasting.


I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble. Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers. The mountains saw thee and they trembled: the overflow ing of the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high. The sun and moon stood still in their habitation.

Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Thou O Lord shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,

even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

All thy works praise thee, O Lord." Declare his marvellous works among all nations.


The heavens declare the glory of God; the firmament sheweth his handy-work. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty to perfection? It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?

Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice.

Shall not his excellency make you afraid ? and his dread fall upon you?

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.


A God of truth. A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows. The God of patience and consolation. The God of peace. great, the mighty God. The living God. The invisible God. The incorruptible God. The everlasting God.

As for God his way is perfect. His work is perfect. Your father that is in heaven is perfect. Bless the Lord your God for ever and ever. Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Blessed be God. Blessed be the name of God
