a We have heard with our Ears, O God, our Fathers have told us, what Works thou didst in their Days, in the times of old.
b For, as the Earth bringeth forth her Bud, and as the Garden caufeth the things that are fown in it, to fpring forth, fo the Lord God hath caused Righteoufnefs and Praise to spring forth before all Nations.
The whole Earth is full of his Glory, and Riches; and they that go down to the Sea in Ships, these fee the Works of the Lord, and his Wonders in the Deep.
d The Lord is King for ever and ever, and his Dominion is an Everlafting Dominion.
e Hẹ ruleth by his Power for ever; let not the Rebellious exalt themselves.
f He is the Bleffed, and only Potentate; The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords: The One Lawgiver, who is able to fave, and to deftroy..
8 Who hath given him a Charge, over the Earth? Or, who hath difpofed the whole World? Who teacheth like him? Or, Who hath enjoyned him his Way? He worketh all things, after the Counsel of his own Will; and he giveth not account of any of his Matters.

Compared with other
He is the ONLY GOD.
a God is one; The Lord, is the true God; he is God alone. The Lord our God, is one Lord.
b The Lord, he is God, in Heaven above, and upon the Earth beneath; there is none elfe.
c The Lord, he is God; there is none else befides him: Before him, there was no God formed, neither fhall there be after him.
d Tho' there be, that are called Gods, whether in Heaven or in Earth; yet, to us, there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him.
e All the Gods of the People, are Idols; which, by Nature, are no Gods: They cannot do evil, neither alfo is it in them to do good, For, we know, that an Idol is nothing in the World; and, that a Graven Image is profitable for nothing; and, that there is none other God but One.
There is NONE LIKE him.
f Who is like unto thee, O Lord? Who is like thee, glorious in Holiness, fearful in Praises, doing Wonders ?
To whom shall we liken God? or what Likenefs fhall we compare unto him? or to whom fhall he be equal?

a Who, in the Heaven, can be compared unto the Lord? who, among the Sons of the Mighty, can be likened unto him?
b Thou art Great, O Lord God, there is none like thee; neither are there any Works like unto thy Works.
c Among the Gods, there is hone like unto thee, O Lord; there is no God, like thee, in Heaven above, or on Earth beneath.
d There is none like thee, in all the Earth: Among all the Wife Men of the Nations, and in all their Kingdoms, there is none like unto thee, O King of Nations.
e God is not (as the wicked think) altogether, fuch an one as our felves; for, his Ways are not our Ways, nor his Thoughts, our Thoughts: But, as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, fo are his Ways higher than our Ways, and his Thoughts than our Thoughts.
f Forafmuch as we are the Off-spring of God, we ought not to think, that the Godhead is like unto Gold, or Silver, or Stone graven by Art, and Man's Device.
He is GREATER than ALL Things.
Who is fo great a God as our God? h Thou whofe Name alone is Jehovah, the moft High, over all the Earth.
i The Lord our God is God of Gods, and Lord of Lords.

a He is far above all Principality, and Power, and Might, and Dominion, and every Name that is named, not only in this World, but also in that which is to come.
b The Lord is greater than all Gods, and he is to be feared above all Gods: For all the Gods of the Nations are Idols; but the Lord made the Heavens.
c God is greater than Man. It is he that fitteth upon the Circle of the Earth, and the Inhabitants thereof are as Grafhoppers.
d Behold, the Nations are as a drop of a Bucket, and are counted as the fmall Duft of the Balance: All the Inhabitants of the Earth are reputed as nothing before him; and they are counted to him lefs than nothing, and Vanity.
