Not a man
Lo! in this, thou hast not been right - let me answer thee, For, GOD, is greater than, man.
Look at the heavens and see, - and survey the skies - they are higher than thou.
GOD is, not a man, that he should lie, Nor a son of Adam, that he should repent, - Hath, he, said, and will not perform? Yea spoken, and will not make it stand fast?
1 Samuel 16:7
But Yahweh said unto Samuel - Do not regard his countenance, or the height of his stature, for I have rejected him, - for it is not what man looketh to but what God looketh to. For, man, looketh to the outward appearance, but, Yahweh, looketh to the heart.
Whatsoever one may be, long ago, was he called by his name, and it is known that it is - Son of Earth, - he cannot, therefore, contend with one stronger than he.
Alas for him who contendeth with his Fashioner, - A potsherd, should contend with the potsherds of the ground! Shall it be said by the clay, unto him that is fashioning it, What wouldst thou make? Or, thy work say, of thee, He hath no hands?
Lo! like a lion, will he come up from the majesty of the Jordan, unto the pasture perennial, But I will wink - I will make him run away therefrom, Who then shall be the Chosen One whom over it, I may set in charge? For who shall be like unto, me? And who shall appoint me, a time? And who is the Shepherd that shall stand before, me?
O man! Who, nevertheless, art, thou, that art answering again unto God? Shall the thing formed say unto him that formed it - Why didst thou make me thus?
1 John 3:20
Because, if our own heart condemn us, greater, is God, than our heart, and perceiveth all things.
Lo! I pray you, I have set forth in order a plea, I know that, I, shall be found right.
Oh that I knew where I might find him! I would come even unto his dwelling-place;
Then call thou, and, I, will answer, Or I will speak, and reply thou unto me.
