Augustine: the profundity of the Scriptures

Thursday, July 18, 2019
    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 [397], Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, XII.xiv, p. 328 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 11:33; Ps. 31:19; 107:15; 139:1-6; Eph. 3:8,16-19; Col. 1:27; 2:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word pierces my heart.
