Daily Bible Nugget #357, Psalm 71:19

The Nugget:

Psalm 71:19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!

My Comment:

Here is another verse which touches upon the ninth attribute of God on my list of over forty attributes of God. The attribute under discussion is God’s transcendence. God is far above our full comprehension. He is separate from and above and outside of the universe He created, though at the same time He is very near to each of us. Notice the Psalmist exclaims, “O God, who is like unto thee!” The note provided with the cross references for this verse given below may increase your understanding of this attribute and other things about God we can learn from the Bible.

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this subject:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 588 for Psalm 71:19.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 635 or in Logos 5 or 6 Bible software for Psalm 71:19.

(3) Consult the cross references given in the original Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 382 of the OT or on line at www.blueletterbible.org for Psalm 71:19.

(3) Most people today do not have access to those three print resources, so I have posted cross references for this passage as I have developed them even more completely for your study as given below:

Psalm 71:19. Thy righteousness. Ps 36:5, 6. 57:10. 139:6. Pr 15:24. 24:7. Is 5:16. **Is 55:9. *Ro 3:26. who hast. Ps 72:18. 126:2, 3. Jb 5:9. +Da 4:3. who is like. Note: God is alone, who can resemble Him? He is that eternal, illimitable, unimpartible, unchangeable, incomprehensible, uncompounded, ineffable Being, whose essence is hidden from all created intelligences, and whose counsels cannot be fathomed by any creature. Ps 8:5n. 35:10. *Ps 86:8. **Ps 89:6-8. +Ex 8:10. *Ex 15:11. Dt 32:31. Is 40:18, 25. +*Is 57:15. Je 10:7. +*Mic 7:18. *Ro 11:33.
