7 For cwhat great nation is there that has da god so near to it as the Lord our God is to us, whenever we call upon him?
18 The Lord is hnear to all who call on him,
to all who call on him iin truth.
23 q“Am I a God at hand, declares the Lord, and not a God far away? 24 qCan a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. rDo I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.
17 Yet che did not leave himself without witness, for he ddid good by egiving you rains from heaven and ffruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with gfood and hgladness.”
