Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.

- Psalm 147:5

Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?

- Job 11:7

 

A king of Syracuse once asked Simonides, his most famous poet, "What is God?"

The poet asked for a day to think about this question and the king gave his permission.

The following day Simonides returned and asked the king for another two days. After this, he desired four additional days. When this time had past, he requested eight more days.

The king expressed his surprise and aksed "Why do you keep asking for more time to answer this question?"

Simonides answered, "The more I think of God, the more I realize how little I know of Him."

We, too, know that there is a God, but can we fully answer this king's question: "What is God?" Why not?
