My thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
His ways past finding out.
He hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
His judgments are unsearchable
God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
only wise God.
Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
His foolishness is wiser than men; and weakness stronger than men.
He knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
He said He would destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
He hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.
He hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.
He hath chosen base things of the world, and things which are despised, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are. (So that we’d only glory in Him… Also, not many mighty are called…)
He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
He hath before ordained that we should walk in good works
(Peter’s audience) was elected by His forknowledge.

Consider the work of God : for who can make [that] straight, which he hath made crooked?
All the work of God: (it’s impossible for man to find out the work that is done under the sun)
He hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
In God’s hand is the righteous, and the wise, and their works, (no man knoweth either love or hatred [by] all [that is] before them)
In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
