Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”
“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
Romans 11:33-36 (New International Version)
"When the apostle Paul, with great wonder, asks, 'Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become his counselor?' (Rom. 11:34), he is not expecting an upstart in the back row to raise his hand" (Douglas Wilson; Back to Basics, p. 8).
