18 He searches out the abyss, and the hearts of men,[a]
    and considers their crafty devices.
For the Most High knows all that may be known,
    and he looks into the signs[b] of the age.
19 He declares what has been and what is to be,
    and he reveals the tracks of hidden things.
20 No thought escapes him,
    and not one word is hidden from him.
21 He has ordained the splendors of his wisdom,
    and he is from everlasting and to everlasting.
Nothing can be added or taken away,
    and he needs no one to be his counselor.
