glory search

heritage EP coverProverbs 25:2-3

God is honored for what he keeps secret.
Kings are honored for what they can discover.
No one can measure the height of the skies or the depth of the earth.
So also no one can understand the mind of a king.
ICB (International Children’s Bible)

God delights in concealing things;
scientists delight in discovering things.
Like the horizons for breadth and the ocean for depth,
the understanding of a good leader is broad and deep.
Message

It is the glory of God to conceal things,
but the glory of kings is to search things out.
As the heavens for height, and the earth for depth,
so the heart of kings is unsearchable.
ESV
