For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
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!
For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
