, Why fay ye, every one that doth Evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delightethin them? He is not a God, that hath Pleasure in Wickedness, neither shall Evil dwell with him.

d Can we, by Searching, find out God? can we find out the Almighty uuto Perfection? Such Knowledge is too wonderful for us: It is high, we cannot attain unto it. And when we talk of him, we cannot order our Speech, by reason of Darkness.

1 Verily, O God, thou art a God that hidest thy self: dwelling in the Light, which no Man can approach unto.

% O the depth of the Riches, both of the Wisdom and Knowledge of God! there is no searching of his Understanding. We know not

»Who knoweth the Power of his Anger? and the Thunder of his Power who can understand?

*, How unsearchable are his Judgments, and his Ways past finding out? His Judgments are a great Deep.
