God most

Psalm 56:2
Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

Psalm 136:2,3
O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever…

Isaiah 57:15
For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Isaiah 26:12
LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.

Philippians 1:6
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:









(2) Peformeth all things for me.--Literally, completes for me, which may be explained from the analogy of Psalm 138:8. But as the LXX. and Vulg. have "my benefactor" (reading gom?l for gom?r) we may adopt that emendation.

Verse 2. - I will cry unto God most High. In the original, "unto Elohim 'elyon" - an expression which only occurs here and in Psalm 78:56. El elyon, however, occurs in Psalm 78:45; as in Genesis 14:18, 19, 22, and Jehovah 'elyon in Psalm 7:18 [Psalm 7:17]. Unto God that performeth all things for me (comp. Psalm 138:8). God "accomplishes" for his saints whatever is good for them.
