What god is there in heaven or on earth
who can do anything like Your works and Your mighty deeds? 

Who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the Lord? … O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty like You, O Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. § Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord; nor are there any works like Your works. § For Your word’s sake, and according to Your own heart, You have done all these great things, to make Your servant know them. Therefore You are great, O Lord God. For there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. § The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children.

Deut. 3:24; Ps. 89:6, 8; 86:8; 2 Sam. 7:21–22; 1 Cor. 2:9–10; Deut. 29:29


He who glories, let him glory in the Lord. 

Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord.

I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ. § I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. § I have reason to glory in Christ Jesus in the things which pertain to God.

Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. § My heart rejoices in the Lord … I rejoice in Your salvation.

Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory, because of Your mercy, because of Your truth.

1 Cor. 1:31; Jer. 9:23–24; Phil. 3:8; Rom. 1:16;
15:17; Ps. 73:25; 1 Sam. 2:1; Ps. 115:1
