Augustine: the profundity of the Scriptures
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
—Romans 11:33 (NIV)
Wonderful is the depth of thy words, whose surface is before us, gently leading on the little ones: and yet a wonderful deepness, O my God, a wonderful deepness. It is awe to look into it; even an awfulness of honour, and a trembling of love.
... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Confessions , Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, XII.xiv, p. 328 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, Your word pierces my heart.
