"Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"
1 Corinthians 2:16
for, "Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?" But we have the mind of Christ.
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
I look but there is no one-- no one among the gods to give counsel, no one to give answer when I ask them.
